Funnily enough, I just read that.
Stood in a plastic bin by accident....hahaha. Rock & Roll!
Imagine if it was backstage, just before they were meant to go on stage, and they couldn't get the foot out of the bin....
stage nerves, they weren't really looking where they were going?
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

At the other end of the spectrum, the hardship the established acts face after decades of touring.

Good read.

Definitely a young persons game - not to mention the actual quality of the performances which unquestionably drops as the years go by.

Those are a bit disenheartening, aren't they? But I wonder how different it really is from before. I think it's always been hard to be an artist, that's why so few make it to the very top, and why so few last very long. Maybe the specific problems have changed, but I think they've always taken a lot to overcome.
Are you tough enough to be kind?
