Do we find much more in common with artists than just the music lets on? Whether it's subject matter, their personalities, etc?
I find that wish a lot of musicians I like listening to, I would love to know them in real life and hang out and talk and even try and make music with them! Is there really a tagible connection do you think? Obviously due to the nature of what they do and being apart of their fanbase it's very one-sided with the fact that you know them, but they don't know you... but is there an actual form of relation there?
This may sound weird, but when I go see my favorite music artists perform live, on the event that they are in town, it's like a spiritual event for me. Like there's no place I'd rather be when I'm there, and I reminisce on seeing them for weeks, months, even years afterwards. It just feels like it would be so gratifying if I was able to be apart of their lives, more so than just supporting them in what they do.
