Went out last night with the guys to hang out with some other bands. As usual, there were about 10 other bands all there, sat round tables in fours. The atmosphere was pretty quiet as usual. As we came in, they all nodded from behind pints acknowledging our gravity. The bar staff were all in a band obviously as well, as you might expect. The problem arose when these other guys came in who were not really in a band but quite liked some of the bands in there. It was really heavy really. Very few had albums in the top 50,000 of all time, like us, so after a while they became totally star-struck by us. We started chewing the fat as best you can with civilians but it became uncomfortable. After 10 minutes of this we just had to get out. It happens. Occupational hazard really. Awkward!!
