BUS LIFE, BABY

I’ve been meaning to do this post earlier in the tour year, but it always goes by so incredibly fast. Suddenly, here we are in the last month of touring for the summer! But, in a way it makes sense because to be quite honest, it takes me about that long to get used to living on the bus and out of a suitcase again. I know some of my musician and touring friends out there know what road life is like, so this may all be redundant for you.

For most of you guys, though, you likely don’t tour with a band and have maybe not ever stepped foot on a tour bus. I actually didn’t see my first tour bus until I started playing with Bob Schneider in Austin around 2008 or so. Before that, it was all van travel with all of our gear in the trailer, loading in and out of clubs and sharing driving duties. That’s a whole other story, though.

 

Needless to say, my first time on a bus, I was in awe. It was like I had finally made it. I’m on a tour bus! How cool is that!? I was giddy with excitement when I found out that we were touring on a bus with Bob. All the other guys in the band were used to it, but not me. For any of you who’ve ever traveled across the country in a big RV, it’s kind of like that….without the gig at the end of every day, probably.

One of the first busses I was ever on was a trip (yeah, that’s me with suer red short hair). It was older Eagle model and the inside looked like someone had gone on a shopping spree at Spencer’s Gifts in the mall. Lots of neon, a disco ball, posters, lava lamps….it was insane. Of course, I thought, is this what all tour buses are like? Uh, no. Definitely not. Some are way crazier, but most are pretty tame.
