It’s been quite some time since I’ve written a journal and I know it’s long overdue. Not just for the website but also for myself as I haven’t put my thoughts and feelings in writing for a while. I know many of you have written in wondering where I’ve been and why I been amiss. One of the obvious reasons for my absence is because I’ve been busy with work and life but, also, because I simply haven’t had the motivation to write these past few months. I guess it’s seclusion in some form.
We’re already almost four months into the New Year and time has certainly flown by. I still can remember the Taipei concert earlier in January, which was simply a blast and probably one of the best concerts I’ve ever played since I started in this business. The Taipei show was such an enjoyable and marvelous experience for me (and probably for many others in the production and band) mainly because everything just felt right. No show or performance is ever perfect in a technical sense but sometimes the chemistry and vibe on stage and in the arena just feels good which makes for a great show. The audience in Taipei, I must say, is probably one of the best I’ve seen so far as they are both generous and powerful in the expression of their emotions and love. That energy coming from the audience is the most important element in making a show successful and meaningful. And, during those two nights in Taipei, the band and myself certainly felt “connected” with the wonderful audience. Thanks, Taipei, you Rock!
