I've always very self-conscious about dancing - which is to say, I can't dance, and I always feel like a tool whenever I do, which is why it doesn't happen very often. Likewise, I sometimes get a little bit too over-analytical about my stage presence whenever I'm performing with a band - sometimes I feel like I'm too stiff, sometimes I feel like I'm rocking out a bit too much. New York City audiences don't really help in that regard, either - generally, you feel like an asshole regardless of what you do.
So I want to say a very loud and sincere "THANK YOU" to Billy Squier, who has made feel about 100x better about myself in so many respects. Via Stereogum, as always.
