There is a lot to pick from, you just have to figure out what one does well versus one another.

I remember a while later we played a gig at a club and this big man came over to me and said “hey what’s this you’re doing with your band?” I said “yeah that’s something you should see! I’m going to be on Broadway in a movie and you go on Broadway and you act like a weirdo”. He said “that’s great”, he really
