Nothing really describes 'on the road' like being on tour with your music. When all you've got is a guitar and a suitcase full of songs (my suitcase is also filled with loop pedals and crystals, conveniently padded out with clothing fit for a gypsy-roller), playing to crowds of people every night and jamming backstage with the temporary family of misfits who've joined the tour.
My favourite tour I've been a part of was happening this time last year when I hit the road with UK deadlocked darling Newton Faulkner. You know him, he looks like he could be a metal guy but sings songs like dream catch me, dream catch me when I faaaaall… *Interesting side note; Newton smells like flowers and is the best hugger I've ever encounter, even better than the free hugs guy.
I blogged about it all while it was happening here.
Hope we can do it again sometime.
