But when I'm in "a studio" or recording at home, I'm right there, emotionally 150%
I think some people have different priorities, recordings, or performance.
Yeah in a way, I like the studio better as well. Live it's always a bit of a compromise, you cannot bring half a dozen guitars and four or five amps to get each song just right (not to mention a truckload of instrumentalists that have collaborated on one song), so you make do with what is sensible or are forced to cut some pieces altogether. There's always that nagging feeling that things are not just entirely right. In a way the most satisfactory songs to play live are the more straightforward ones.
On the other side, it's awesome to play to a crowd who's responding to what you do..
