“My dad told me “one day son, this girl will think of what she’s done
and hurting you will be the first of many more regrets to come”
He said “if she doesn’t call, then it’s her fault and it’s her loss”
I say it’s not that simple, see, but then again it just may be”—I Would Be Sad - The Avett Brothers
“Regret for every step I took
From Fisher Road to Hollywood.
Feeling bad and acting good
I never was content.
It was hostile moves in hotel rooms.
I watched my friends promote their dooms.
From Pontiac to Newport News
Nothing made much sense”—
“And I had to leave a few behind
When they replaced the apple wine
With cocaine and codeine pills
I knew I was done
And I didn’t really say goodbye
They walked their path and I walked mine.
I would find other ways
To break my body down”—The Avett Brothers - Fisher Road [ x ]
Also, if you beautiful people ever need anything at all, don’t hesitate to ask!
The best part about being an Avett fan is that everyone is so kind and caring - wether it be on social media or in person - from sharing concert stories, to helping those who aren’t having such a great day, to dancing crazily with a complete stranger at an Avett show.
So please feel free to talk to me whenever you like! I’d love to hear your stories, help you through the bad, and share in your joy!
"We came to break the bad, we came to cheer the sad, we came to leave behind the world a better way"
I honestly can’t even begin to understand how people survive without music. My entire life is engulfed by music and what it means to me. I’m always thinking about it, listening to it, or making it. Without music my life would be dull and dead. It just baffles me that some people don’t even care at…
SCOTT AVETT: We keep songs under our belt now longer than we used to. We used to literally finish a song and play it that night.
SETH AVETT: We wouldn’t think twice about it. We know now that that’s not appropriate to our ages and our professional interest.
SCOTT AVETT: It’s not best for the songs, because we’ve learned that they take longer to develop. It could have a great melody and be produced well and really get you dancing, but a good, lyrical song that’s torn open and exposed? That was very important to me. I think we have to be realistic about how much we want to expose. If you have a child involved, you want to protect that child. That’s your job.
