The Holiday Season usually dredges up memories for me. And lately they've been sad memories about a lot of fine musicians who are no longer with us.
Here's Freddy Mercury and Queen:
"Crazy Little Thing Called Love took me five or ten minutes. I did that on the guitar, which I can't play for nuts, and in one way it was quite a good thing because I was restricted, knowing only a few chords. It's a good discipline because I simply had to write within a small framework. I couldn't work through too many chords and because of that restriction I wrote a good song, I think." - Freddie Mercury
Things like this remind me why it's a good thing I never wanted to be a front man. Or the lead singer. Because I'm not - nor will I ever be.
However, being an occasional backup singer, and the bass player, doesn't seem such a bad thing to me.
In fact, it suits me rather well...
And that's just fine
