Does your Significant Other also visit this site? What do they think about you coming here? Do they think you spend too much time here? Are they as involved in music and the scene surrounding as much are you?

My wife doesn't get into music like I do. She listens to country. I don't think she reads off of the site. She probably does think I spend too much time here, but she doesn't say anything when I go to Wanee or JFD or ATL or Charlotte for shows. I told her last year that Beacon was probably a one time thing for me. That may or may not be. I'm definitely want to go next year as it's ABB's 40th anniversary tour. I just KNOW they'll have a show on March 26, which is the famous date of the Jacksonville jam. That'd be the show I'd want to do.

She has things she likes to do for and by herself. This is my thing. I'm OK with it.

My wife is not into music a much as I am and she thinks I spend too much time on this site. She is not a big camper so therefore she does not come to Wanee. see you all at Wanee next year!

My SO, Donna, has a variety of bands she likes from her favorite Springsteen, Radiohead, Miles, NIN, Ella but she is not into music like I am. She doesn't like the ABB due to having heard it so much over the years. She doesn't understand the Liz Reed is "brand new" every time I play it.

She does think I waste to much time on here.

My wife doesn't really have any problems with it or the time I spend here. My boss, on the other hand . . .

My ex hated that I came on here. But now it is ok for her to spend close to $250.00 on dating sites and deny her kids. They sit in a corner and wait for mommy to play with them!

However, the one or two times she has complained about me spending time on the internet, I said, "for 35 years, my father would go to work, work his 8-hour shift, and would then stop at a local bar for 1-3 hours to drink and hang out with his friends before coming home."

"This is what I do instead of that." That usually shuts her up.

Document everything she does wrong and then file for full custody.



Sorry Eric. I get riled over this stuff.

She seems to enjoy, she doesn't post much but she feels that she has met some very nice people off of here. I may get a roll of the eyes every once in a while, but that would be the timing of getting on the computer. Overall, she is behind it all. She loves going to the shows too.

My wife doesn't get music as much as I do, but she gets a kick out of it that I enjoy it and get caught up in it.

Thanks Dave not to get off topic but here in Mass it is impossible for me to get custody without paying close to 50 grand. And that would take close to two years and it may not happen

She's somebody elses SO now...
She sat between me and her hubby at the last ABB show in KC.
Also they are picking me up from the airport Sat morning in KC to go to my son's college graduation ceremony.
After that I wonder....are we still a disfunctional family or is it all completed.

After being "concerned" about the amount of time I spent online here,my wife finally came to a few shows, and started to meet GBers, especially at the Beacon pre show parties. She now enjoys the music and extended family almost as much as me. Sometimes she comes with me to shows and events, and sometimes she doesn't. She is okay with it. I guess I'm a lucky guy! (in so many ways!)

Everybody from here likes my wife more than they like me.

I'm not sure, but at this point I hope she still likes me more than she likes all of them.

A slightly modified version of TopDroog's alcohol related response is my answer for any and all music purchasing/trading/concert going/reading/internet searching/etc.

Sometimes it works, somethimes it doesn't, we always get through it.

My husband thinks I'm a little bit crazy, but I don't feel bad about it since he knew that when he married me. He doesn't get on the computer at all. He really likes music, but doesn't have the passion for it that I do, so he doesn't really understand. He's pretty good about my obsession with the ABB. He's a bit afraid that I'll meet some kook or stalker or nut on the internet that will want to hurt me in some way. Can't really blame him for being protective.

Not having a SO, maybe I shouldn't comment but....

My little town has been blessed by frequent visits from folks here over the years. And it has been the topic of much talk. People don't necessarily "get it," but they know something is going on. "Astonishment" might be the best word. They love what goes on when GB folks are here, marvel at the fun they have, try to understand the attraction to the place they live and work every day. A couple of folks, Johnny Wiemann and Jimmy Walker, have been out of town to some of the family get-togethers, have a better grasp.
My concert buddy Mary Jane came closest to "getting it." Bottom line, lots of folks in my little town have been blessed by this family, friendships made through meeting at music events connected to the site here. A very, very positive thing.
