I've had exactly two actual gigs in my life (both of them at school with an audience of 200 people)
and then next month I'm going to be the lead (only) guitarist for 2 hour long revues on 6 consecutive nights with a total of 3500 people watching, they'll make a DVD of it, and I get to play this song as well as a whole bunch of others in a 25 minute intermission jam. On a giant prop boat in the upstage of Norway's original national theatre. And in one scene I get to wear A GODDAMN PIRATE COSTUME
so well I don't even care about christmas anymore. But I hope you guys will have a merry one.
