. I don't intend to stop gigging any time soon and I'm not exactly in my teens myself. Basically, I can't not do it.
Just noticed this thread (nothing gets past me) :shock: :D :D

I know how you feel but, after breaking my back, I simply can't do it any more. So my playing career (that started when the date started 197..) had to end on the live front.

I'm in Somerset and still try to keep as involved as I can (tricky in a wheelchair).
Keep it live brother as long as you can stand up. There's always younger people to carry your amplifier!!

Take care

Paul :D

I'm really glad I read through all the replies here. It is pretty inspiring to hear everyone's encouragement!! (I suspect there are actually many many many of us in about the same situation).

I will add that - as a keys player, I find that as the years go on, after every gig, I begin to ask myself why I did not learn guitar instead... :lol:

Please note that this thread is four years old and the OP hasn't returned here since 2018.

But I was wondering, why would you rather have been a guitar player? Aren't the roles of keys and guitar rather similar in a band? (Well if you're not in Deftones).

My guess would be that its more about pounds, cubic feet and mobility than roles. We can all get by with small and lightweight basic gear but where's the fun in that? :roll: :lol:
Graham (UK). Still composing a little faster than decomposing.
