What Has Been Going On With Me and the Live Music Scene in SL

Wow! It has been a long time since I have been on here! Honestly, a month ago I thought that I would never blog again. Actually, I thought about leaving SL for good. As you can see, I got over all of that. I mean...I just couldn't disappoint the two readers that I have now..could I? LOL!

So, I have been through some changes in SL. One of the things that has changed is that I just don't get on as much. I still get on and I still have fun but I don't feel like my RL has to revolve around my SL and I don't get those "I haven't been on SL today!!" withdrawals like I used to! Whew! Balance has returned to my life!

When I log on now, one of the things I enjoy doing is checking out the live music scene. I have always loved Cylindrian Rutabaga and SRV4U Conacher and I plan on downloading some of Cylindrian's tunes from itunes soon. I joined the Live Music Enthusiasts group to keep updated on shows and artists but I had to leave it because there were so many notifications that my IMs kept getting capped

One of the new artists that I like to see alot is Madmax Huet. He is a blues guitarist that does his own stuff and it is amazing! If you check out his group Maximum Blues, you will see he has been playing electric blues guitar and blues harp with some blues jazz thrown in. He's been playing since he was 12 years old and performs live in London clubs and bars. He plays a regular Saturday gig at Not Too Hot at 1 pm SLT. I took the picture of him below one night at one of his gigs. He looks rather stoic, don't you think?
