I swore I would never do this, but it's looking like it's time to hang it up. The amount of time away from my family (I was single when I joined the band in 2004) is getting to be a hassle, and it would be an understatement to say that my wife doesn't appreciate it. The band is what I would consider VERY successful (extremely high demand, and high paying shows) and we have great line up with zero egos, hence the longevity; I really don't want to walk away from the band. I guess this is the proverbial, you can't have your cake and eat it too. Anybody else successfully "transition?!" I'm not even sure when I would even get to play at home. My wife phased out my "music rooms," when we moved to our current house, and I sold off a few amps, and 6 guitars.
