I wish that I had done more side man gigs; playing the second banana is very important to a team effort. With the Chads we are all Bananas.
I read a book in college called, 'The Evaluation of This Business Called Music". Reading that book as well as having parents with executive careers, made me pony up to making a living. On hundred percent of the acts do one thing so unfortunately diversity among bands is the baby out with the bath water in today's crowded roster of "Talent". The listener is now hidden in their own audio world; it's sad but true. Streaming gets the message to folks that live in the kingdom of Tron. My ASCAP checks should be larger than life, however my music is in transit to reach the masses at the speed of sound.
