The biggest obstacle we have faced is keeping band members. I used to be a prick to my band mates. I usually thought everyone that played music with me wasn’t good enough. I learned the hard way on that one.
They say that every musician eventually goes back to their roots. The best thing is to keep that inspiration flowing by surrounding yourself with great people, good times and amazing music what ever your feeling at the time.
Fate would have a hand in my career, a few years back I was asked to play Ukraine with my band on new years eve in Euromaidan kiev just two weeks before the uprising. We played in front of half a million people.
