There' a few things in life I really enjoy. One is band, music, and being a music video director here in the UK (YES THAT IS ONE THING!)... the other is The Walking Dead.
It struck me when I was in the shower that what Rick Grimes and his crew have to go through isn't really that different to what hard working bands all over the world have to go through daily. Stick with me on this one... there is a lot of striking similarities!
If you don't believe me then just read on dammit!
1. You've forgotten what the normal world was even like
You've spent so long sat in a van, and living in perpetual darkness that you're not sure what life even is any more.
2. You have to scavenge for food
That £1.76 you've got to split 3 ways to buy dinner isn't gonna go too far... and the rider is a bag of crisps each.
3. You're used to being around the smell of unwashed humans and death
Let's face it, you're gonna struggle to have a decent wash every day if you're on the road. Or maybe your drummer just doesn't care any more.
4. You want out but the only option to do that is death
You've been doing this so long that the only way you can stop is if you perish.
5. Fuelling your vehicle is becoming increasingly difficult
When the petrol money doesn't cover petrol money what do you do? Muuuuuum?
6. You never know when someone is just gonna steal all your stuff
You've always got one eye on your gear, even though it's stowed securely behind a table.
7. F##K NEGAN!
And seriously. F##K THIS GUY!!!
