Love the music not the gain
SINCE I was a child I have been fascinated and fully absorbed in music.
Buying records from a young age, it was like this magical world that went on forever.
In 1982 I was lucky enough to join a band in Brisbane and from that point started doing live shows, writing and recording.
It didn’t stop and I made some records I am proud to have my name on and still sing to this day.
It’s a strange thing to witness people who have never played at all and had little interest in doing so, to suddenly decide they are going to pick up an instrument way down the track and expect to be on par with others who have been learning their craft for years.
I have nothing against anyone wanting to play or sing at any point in their lives but music isn’t there to be used like a reality TV show.
I’ve always loved music in many forms over the years and been involved with bands from Brisbane to Sydney to Melbourne and here.
I always fully respected my peers and people that had been around a lot longer than me.
I think what I’m trying to say is, love music for what it is, not what it can do for you.
