I just went to a Billy Corgan concert in Nashville...

I don’t envy famous people.

Like these artists such as Billy Corgan who are immensely talented...

Going out and giving their hours and their hearts and souls.

It’s so much emotion combined with a level of perfection that I can only assume must be daunting.

I’m not sure how they feel about it...

But I just know it’s a lot.

It’s a lot to go out there and give yourself like that.

To let all that feeling overtake you to share it with the audience...

Who yeah most of them love you, but a lot of them are assholes.

And even many of the ones who love you are dumb.

No offense.

And I'm glad He blessed me that way.

It was an interesting time period to see him too because most of the work he’s known for look place 20+- years ago...

And now he’s 50.

He looked out at the audience before break and basically said “When I come back, I’m playing a bunch of songs that were written before you were born.”

The audience rebutted, and then Billy said he was just trying to be polite basically by assuming everyone was young.

I’d say the average age in there was 30-45. Some younger ones scattered about here and there.

It was just interesting to consider his perspective, some insight to his thoughts.

Such rapture...

When you’re there and he’s right in front of you, it’s like you can’t think about what he represents or where he’s been, or how you’ve felt about him in the past.

It takes effort to think of anything you’ve ever seen or heard before, when he’s up there just being raw.

Somehow transcends all that. He has such a level of mastery that makes it all seem new...

Separates it from anything you remember, but somehow it’s still exactly the same at its core.

I think playing a small venue like that must be in some ways more trying than a large one...

The audience is so personal, you look out there and you’re gonna bump into somebody.

It’s not a sea of faces like a big venue. Awkward wouldn’t be the right word for it, though I would classify the Nashville audience as a bit painful at times. No fault of theirs really. It’s hard to explain.

Billy was very ‘business’ about it at first. Total skill the whole way through, never compromised on the feeling behind it...

But I would imagine the audience takes on a mass perceived consciousness, and so in the beginning we were strangers.

But there was a lot of love in that room... and that was real even if in some ways misguided on the part of the audience.

A few songs in, a couple entered the room...

They had seats at the very front too.

They walked past the stage to sit down and Billy looked at them hard...

It was like, “Really guys?”

How could they have been that late, especially whilst having scored seats in the front?

You could tell they were aloof.

So that’s what I mean about the mass consciousness of the audience...

Billy took note and a very brief personal assessment upon something being out of place...

Almost like they were a couple of invaders. And everyone else basically felt the same way.

We were all getting into the groove... he was getting to know us, we were getting to know him.

It took awhile. But it warmed up into something that was genuine between Billy and the crowd.

The audience meant well...

I never got the impression Billy would rather not be there.

There was something special about the show.

He sang some shit that made me pretty horny too, but I didn’t want to be obvious and squeal about it.

It’s all energy anyway, I’m sure he could feel the response from the chicks.

They took my bottle of water away from me at security and I had to buy another one in the venue.

Which I could tell they were perplexed by my sadness about the loss of the water.

I must have my water present at all times. End of story.

I then had a 2 minute conversation with the lady who sold me the water...

She was discussing the incredibly thick and luxurious napkins and encouraged me to take a few.

I was very nice to her.

I gotta be honest though...

I pretty much never wanna see another concert.

There’s just no way to equal that experience.

Not that it’s about equaling or anything...

But it just does not get better than that.

Once you’ve had the best, why bother with anything else?

He reminded me of a mad scientist, up there in his coat...

He was like a magician.

He was casting spells on us.
