Music is a way of life, a hobby, an escape. It gives me great pleasure and a sense of accomplishment whenever I write something that others like.
To be able to continue making music and collaborating with friends for many years to come.
Getting rid of all the hatred and racism in the world.
I would say the song I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles, because I have a vivid memory of myself and my older sister sitting on the floor with a portable record player between us listening to that song, and the album Meet The Beatles.
The Beatles, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Acoustic Alchemy, Liona Boyd, Craig Chaquico, Nightwish, Disturbed, Sabaton, Shinedown, Green Day, Helloween, Iron Maiden, Breaking Benjamin, Zapple Pie.
The sheer joy of it.
Be Happy, for the most part, and enjoy life.
Have not really played in front of many people in a large group, did at a few weddings, a bit nervous but enjoyable, did a few recitals at a young age with a lot of stage fright, but got through most of them okay.
Musicians seem to have to make their money by performing live today, as record and cd sales seem to have really gone way down. I would make it harder to download a musician's music on line for free, so the artist would get more from their work instead of people getting it for free.
So far I like it very much, lots of good music and the exposure is very nice.
Not being able to jam live with friends very much.
Have seen a friend who sang in a few local bands here, and support a Beatles cover band that comes around once in awhile that is based near me.
The willingness to make the effort to get their music out there, and a good attitude about it.
