Some of you may wonder if I’m ever going to get back out to the local music scene aka the Capital Region. Will I? I don’t think so. I’m not too worried about getting back out there anymore and I lost interest in local music as a whole.
You hear a lot of talk throughout the community how the scene is “thriving” and how the local music scene has gotten so much better. Well, in my eyes, we haven’t gotten any better so don’t believe all the hype. From what I’m seeing there are still no music venues around the area and there are bands/solo artists out there still playing to empty venues. The music scene has always been the same it’s always been.
I’m also not so thrilled with the talent around this area ’cause I haven’t really heard anything good in a long while. There are a few local bands that I actually dig but lately, I haven’t been hearing anything that interests me.
On top of all this, I’m also not thrilled with the attitudes of some of the bands & artists around this area. This area has some of the most egotistical and narcissistic musicians I’ve ever seen (not naming any names, btw). Too many around either think they are “rock stars” or they want to be rock stars, take your pick. That “rock star” attitude has never changed with them even to this day, I see. They are still the arrogant jerks even to this day.
I also have no desire to come back when this area’s local music scene is very liberal with their politics. Almost every band and solo artist you’ll see around here are all liberal. Most everyone around here are all Trump haters for sure. I’ve always believed that this area would be more supportive of me and my music if I wasn’t a “conservative” and a “Trump supporter”, but I don’t give a shit whether they do or not. Liberals ruin everything, even local music scenes. I wish they would keep politics out of music but they never learn.
I almost wanted to come back to the music scene and actually thought about it but I don’t think I will. I am still playing music. I am still playing my guitar and singing. I haven’t written new originals in a long while but I’ve been learning cover songs more than playing originals lately which I feel proud of doing.
If I were to ever play live again then I would try to play a few gigs in Saratoga Springs and that’s about it. I don’t think you’ll ever see me play in the city of Albany again, though.
As of this moment, life is really good. Just keeping my focus hitting the gym 4 times a week, focusing on bodybuilding & powerlifting. I’m still keeping myself busy in life even though some don’t think so.
As for new original music, I’m still itching for new stuff and trying to come up with new stuff. Even though I don’t play live hardly at all anymore, I’ll always play music for the internet. Always.
