Last weekend I had a DJ gig in Melbourne Australia. When I arrived, the biggest Aussie Rules game of the year had just been played, the Grand Final replay between Collingwood and St. Kilda.
It was a huge win for Collingwood, and as I watched the coverage from my hotel room I wondered why I wasn’t a big sports fan.
I realised that it comes down to a lack of control.
Looking at the St. Kilda supporters and their obvious great distress I wondered why they would put their emotional state in the hands of a group of people over whom they have absolutely no control.
But then I wondered why for so long I’ve placed the fate of my music (and my whole career) in the hands of a group of people over whom I have absolutely no control.
