"I was a supporting musician first, a side man first. I was always a keyboard player in a band. So I knew that role very well of learning what my responsibilities were as a keyboardist, how to interact with the band as the keyboardist, how does the keyboard interact with the guitars, with the drums, how to support a singer. Make sure everything you do in your role supports who's paying you, because you want them to be the best they can. That's the role of a sideman." - John "Papa" Gros
