afte only a year of playing occasionally, Ive started to tire of playing live... I may be re-retiring. I'm having issues with finding places to play. I think I am going to just find a street corner somewhere to play (busk) and just go do that whenever I get an urge to do anything live. There is always pressure to play songs that I dont know and do not want to know.

Seems the local Live venues are not that interested in oldies... or in "non-country" - I'm not interested in playing post 80's songs, or in playing country music. I have had my fill of playing music I dont like. Too freakin' old for that crap.
