2. Man Up and Take the Blame…

 

Because it’s your fault anyway.

 

A man wiser than myself (ha! what a funny saying), said that an artist never has a bad show, it’s always someone else’s fault.

 

That is so true!

 

I know my worse nights performing were never my fault.  Sometimes it was the band’s fault, but usually it’s the soundman.

 

The audience talks over my performance: obviously, the sound system wasn’t loud enough.

 

I can’t hit the notes or sing in pitch: the monitors weren’t loud enough.

 

I couldn’t sing because I lost my voice: the monitors weren’t loud enough last night.

 

This doesn’t even touch on the fact that I didn’t have something to drink to lube the chords or a severe shortage of girls to party with on the bus.

 

Hey, why fight.  Suck it up, admit it’s your fault, and go pack up.
