My brother (Marshall) and i got together with Paul Reed in grade school as a 3 pc band. when we did a benefit for Fairview Hospital, Paul got sick early in the set. our audience was a few hundred mentally ill/ retarded patients. he blew chunks on stage. his mom starting to grab his set, and i said for her to leave it there...she said can i play them? i said i'm going to have to learn them REAL QUICK!!
music is many things to me... mood changer ...both listening and playing/recording. it's given many things to me... also.....mostly good

listening to, free time, good musicians,
down through the ages, your need to be free, when you feel good about giving, thats when you'll be (free) songs have different meanings to each of us, and some can take us back in time (flashbacks) some songs are TIMELESS, priceless, and are more powerful than alcohol, drugs, dictators, gangs, only a handful of songs give up secrets of our existence....one of them (to me) is a thousand years
not like earlier times.....if there is such a thing
think....i try not to............have not been on the site long enough to give opinion
all the wasted talent out there.......
as much as i can afford to .........
empathy, compassion, creativity, personal and social skills, patience, desire, a keen eye for a good promoter, manager, (studio) engineer,, sound reinforcement people., detail oriented, a work ethic, to name a few. oh....versatility helps, and to realize music is a team effort .....not just your bandmates but also the (hero's) mentioned above. they will make you or break you. its a lot like team sports . the acknowledgement is slightly different (trophy- award) . try doing it all yourself ....rots of ruck...er...lots of luck!! good relations with y o u r custodial guardian is likely a must. too. you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with. you cant soar with eagles if your hanging around turkeys....gobble gobble.
