I saw a thread right here that was talking about those moments that make you realize why you loved music. I wanted to go a bit further and put the moments out there that made me realize why I wanted to play music.
Blink 182 in Concert
Yes this might seem an odd choice, but I distinctly remembering seeing Blink 182 back in 2000 and wanting to start a band right after that. They might not seem like the best band to decide to play music, but they did it for me because they could have fun up there playing. I knew that's why I wanted to do.
First band Faze Factor
How about playing in a living room for only a few people and playing some cover songs? That's what I remember from the first time I played with Stephen and Doug. We then added Tim along the way and recorded a cd in my basement. That's punk rock.
Okay Death Ray
How about playing out in public for people and seeing that people actually enjoyed the music? I still remember the time seeing some people singing words with me and getting such a chill up my spine. I was lucky enough to remember some of my lyrics since I didn't write them all down and just went out with an idea. But I remember those people singing along and telling me what songs they liked the most.
There you go, three distinct moments that made me love music the way I do. What about yourself? What makes you love music or wanted to play music?
