Why is music important to you? It's my flesh and blood. Music helps me solve problems and deal with emotions and issues in ways that words can never reach. Music connects some people and separates others. Live music especially is a creation of a moment and an energy that is irresistible and irreplaceable. Humans would be lesser creatures without this source of creative expression.
