When I was in college I lived with my band members. I was in another
room and could hear their music through the halls. They were playing
a harp player I really liked! I ran into the next room to find out
who it was. They were listening to a recording of our last show.
That was a good feeling.
Yeah, but did you curse the other harp player before you realized it was you?
No, because you're a really nice guy. (I've met Michael Rubin, and will
attest to this.)
I used to get cranky if someone sounded great and it wasn't me.
Conversely, I used to get all cheered up if I heard a harp player who
couldn't cut it, unless they were getting too much work.
Now I'm nearly always cheerful, because as short-term memory takes a hike,
you can rarely remember what just pissed you off.
In closing, Michael Rubin's playing is of such high quality that, if this
were the olden days, it would have bugged the hell out of me.
