In Vegas I mean he'd be there for two months and he worked two, shows a night sometimes three seven days a week in, an hour and twenty five. Minutes or so and he was the whole show it's not like you're a bass. Player in a band like Aerosmith or something. Or a drummer where if you have an off night. Everybody else can carry you.
