10 Years of Railroad Earth

Railroad Earth celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. The band will mark the occasion, with a special show in its native New Jersey. This gig will take place on May 7 at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, with Jackie Greene also on the bill. As the group counts down to that day, it is releasing a series of videos in which the band members reflect on their tenure in the group. Andy Goessling’s thoughts appear above while John Skehan’s perspective runs below.

I find it hiairlous that Page played Water in the Sky with his legs crossed. Considering the motion he made with his cup immediately preceding, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a little saucy for the show.

This is an eemxrtely interesting observation. It has made me think (always a useful blog outcome) .Most people work in non-gig situations, where there is no overt / staged performance’ and it is less clear who is watching’. None the less it is a show. Most of the time not much Driving goes on. People oscialte between Cycling and Absorbing. To follow the metaphor being driven or at least given a route map by others. And of course, some people spend there time absorbing the hell out of the situation. This is perhaps why when someone who comes along who does some driving (leads the show) they get the reaction they do. Others look on, surprised. Why can’t I get that appreciation (energy) success? Trouble is they are just not brave enough to move into the spotlight. Fear of failure, not getting your sums right, laughed at A sort of corporate stage-fright.
