About Grief

“The show must go on.”

Grief is a natural response to a loss in life  It might be the death of a loved one, the dissolvement of a relationship, the break-up of a band, or the separation from family and friends that might leave you feeling sad and alone. The rigors of a life in music do not always allow for one to process loss like everyone else.  Those tasked with making sure the show goes on can often ignore their own feelings and emotions in order to perform at their highest level.

No two people will experience grief in the same way.  Common emotions associated with grief and loss are sadness, anger, anxiety, shock, regret, irritability and even relief.
