That's not a pimple on my chin, that's excitement trying to get out.

at The Whiskey - '94

I'm not sure when and where Keanu first played bass for an audience, it may have been in '92 at a club called Raji's in Hollywood. A Dogstar gig that went down in history as where Weezer got it's name. (There's a little geek trivia for you.)

Anyway, I'm sure Keanu wasn't as nervous as I am today. I'm sure he didn't have a home eyebrow plucking incident the night before, giving him a perpetual quizzical look. I'm sure that he didn't lie awake until 1:30, wake up at 5am, and then couldn't go back to sleep until 6:30 and ended up DREAMING ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO SLEEP. Gah.

But I'm also sure that once he started playing he went with the moment. He probably put his head down, stood close to his amp and just let the music happen. And that's what I'm going to do tonight. I'm just going to focus on the music and get my bass on.

And hope that no one else fucks up.

I wish you could all be there.

For those that will be: don't bother screaming at me to take off my shirt, either.

Rock on.

Don't post much but you really keep me entertained! All the best "getting your bass on". I'm sure you will do great...and if you don't? Well, I'm sure there may be an amusing story for us afterwards.

Good Luck Krix!!!!!!!!! And remember to tell us all the details(no matter how embarrasing they are!)

when I was a member of student´s traveling theatre group all of us were afraid to do show, so we had a ritual before play.
Behind curtain we did this: all together (head to head) scream: WE ARE THE BEST, WE ARE THE BEST AND WE MERIT THE MONUMENT!!! after this words no one was afraid of audience.
shaking knees are allowed ;-)))

Guys like chicks who play bass! :-D

In the words of one of my ol' fave guitar gods (Mick Ronson), my advice to you is:
"Play, don't worry.
Play, don't be scared.
Don't you think about them-
start your dreamin' again for tomorrow."
