I squandered the few talents I had. I canít really say ďhaveĒ, because, well, I squandered them. They didnít develop. One was music. I squandered my musical ability for two main reasons. Firstly, lack of confidence. I was too scared to perform, either on a small or large scale, until it was too late. Secondly, technofear. I didnít understand music tech. PAs, mixing decks and sound checks, home recording rigs, effects boxes... it all left me stymied and ashamed of myself. The problem only got worse with the advent of music technology on computers. Music itself seemed simple in comparison.
