It’s that season when flu and colds hit out of the blue .. kinda like operating system failures that cannot be restored. My main pc went down last week this time, and my laptop appeared to on Sunday when Jesse Elliott (Ark Life) and Bryce Merrill were sitting with me in my dining room discussing the music scene here regionally. Fortunately, that blip was just that – just a minor heart attack; my pc, not so much.
Ok, so I did save 99% of my music collection on an external hard drive, and two of my 1TB cloud accounts .. but noooooo .. not a lick of five years of business files. Live and learn, at least the music is safe.
I live to discover new music, new songs, new voices – it’s the voices I crave, the unique, the inviting, the telling … live or recorded. I crave new musical experiences. So when the sickening feeling hit me as Windows crashed in front of me, I momentarily felt like my life was swirling along with the rest of my files – far too much music to have to think about trying to put back together. I’m happy I didn’t lose my music collection. I really do enjoy sharing it with you on the radio here in Colorado.
New Offstage …Beyond the Music this week with award winning producer/engineer/pedal steel player John Macy.
