actors vs musicians

I think everyone, occationally wants to become an actor. In the movie you’re working on a dialogue, which is something you try to avoid as a musician. Most people probably don’t know how introvert most musicians really are.

Just look at when you’re recording an album, for example. You are totally isolated. You’re spending hours and hours thinking about which idea to use. During that period, the studio technician may be the only person you’ll meet for months. When the album is finished you’re supposed to do lots of live-performances. I still get extremely nervous before every concert, until I hear the first notes of the first song, then I can relax all about it.
