And so, based on a suggestion from my sister and brother-in-law, I have started said blog, aimed at discussing the live music events I see this year, amongst other things along the way, I'm sure.
As fellow fans may already have realised from the purple references already littering this blog, I'm an avid Prince fan - so much so that I took off on a spontaneous 10 day trip to California last May in order to see him during his residency at L.A. Forum (I ended up seeing him twice in L.A., once in Fresno and twice in San Jose). This is probably a good time to mention that I live in Melbourne, Australia.
When it was suggested that I blog about my live music experiences, I argued that I wasn't at all qualified to do so, given that I'm not a musician, I'm just a music lover who enjoys seeing musicians performing live.
It was pointed out to me that the beauty of blogs is that you don't have to be an expert in anything, you can just write about your experiences and people who enjoy reading about them can do so.
So if you have found your way here, I hope you do enjoy reading as I recount my experiences at live music events this year (and possibly highlights from past years along the way).
Feedback is always fun and welcome (well, it's only fun if it's nice - or amusing - I suppose, but definitely always welcome) and I'm particularly keen to hear about your own concert experiences. It's also a blog rule that you have to share your thoughts if you went to the same concert, of course! :)
Thanks for jumping aboard!
