“Yeah, certainly, it influences everyone, the full music community and all the fans. It is not the to start with time that a attractive soul, a fragile soul is sacrificed on the altar of enjoyment and rock and roll. And we are all about going out on the road and supplying almost everything for that, but there’s a selling price to shell out. It is seriously, truly, seriously really hard on the mental and the soul and the people. We go away youngsters at the rear of. It is tricky on most people.
