Because Ray & Cid didn’t open a disco club… but the blues is the root of all today’s great music, and you don’t have to listen hard to hear it there. I’ve been working in and around live music for the past couple of decades because I could just never get enough of great music.
After finding Second Life, imagine my surprise to learn that there was music here as well as poseballs!!! I quickly found myself hanging out at a classic rock & blues club just listening and requesting all day. One of the DJ’s there, West Habercom (shameless plug here) had his own business renting stream servers and took me under his wing and showed me what it took to DJ in Second Life. Since then I’ve been playing at least one gig just about every day.
I still play there most days/nights, and it so happened that Ray was drunk and half deaf one night when he heard me and in a deluded state agreed to let me play some blues at his & Cid’s new club. Since that first night I couldn’t be happier to be playing in a place with some of the greatest bluesers I’ve met in all of Second Life. Please note I said playing and not working, because a party like we’ve got going on down here at the Riverside can’t even be called work.
It really is all about the music for me…
