It wasn't supposed to happen like this. It was supposed to be one of those run of the mill gigs where everything was normal. Nothing out of the ordinary. But now, looking back on it, I can see where I was wrong. Completely wrong.
I was young. I was still in my 20s. Just out of college. Making a [...]
I wish I would have taken a picture of this guy. He was reading a book in a bar at our gig tonight. Swear to God!
