#6 Drink/Do Drugs.

 

This one is perfect because it’s so fun: if it doesn’t kill you.

 

I’m sure the 99% of you (you know, because you’re musicians) have experienced the bullet-proof, non-restrained, exhilaration of playing while intoxicated.  There’s no lick you couldn’t (or wouldn’t) play.

 

Also:

 

no girl beyond reproach.

 

Nor, challenge not worth accepting.

 

No one who wouldn’t want to hear your opinion.

 

And, I’m fairly certain that 100% of you have seen this action first hand with either a band member or some band you went to see.  With that in mind, you know that the intoxicated player is not bullet-proof, and the free-style playing is less than optimum in a professional band setting.

 

So, if you want to get fired and have fun doing it, get yourself a bottle of Jack and a designated driver and let her rip!
