Well Hamza is always the wiser of us. It is unbelievable how big our archive of videos and photos is…..and his idea of the memory box is brilliant. It really is a treat even for me…..esp when he pops out one interesting photo or video or documents from his archive Hard disk that I’ve completely forgotten……I sometimes feel that I am rather embarrassed to look at my self from the past and always tend to shut my mind every time I come across memories….
When I looked at the Scared Heart concert the first thing I remember is the sleepless nights sequencing the covers….MAN I HATE COVERS!!!! (covers are btw other people’s songs that a band sings esp when they don’t have many of their own)….and then I remember the kids screaming “hum ne app ke ganay nahin sunnay” and then the depression of realizing that what a disaster it is so sing a song on the wrong tempo. Every song that you hear from me is now a product of the lesson I learnt on that day…..and that is always find the “magic tempo”…In a live concert it always better to be fast then to be slow …in fact most of the drummers who have played with me could tell you of their annoyance when I would, in the middle of a song keep on raising my hand up and up esp when we’ve started the song slow.
And then I remember my vow to never do a concert again!!!
I think the next entry in the memory box should be from me… telling everyone how I broke my vow……
