Re: [Harp-L] Reality check?
Ooooh brother. It looks like we were both made with the same King
biscuit cutter. I could touch this, but I'm afraid. Very very afraid.

gotta say it. My first paying gig was in 1969 when I was 12 years

20 bucks for the night. I did a coffee house gig as a duo last
bucks for the night. Bar owners and people who book bands know
quite well that
we as musicians don't make enough to live most of the time. They take
advantage of the fact that we love what we do. I have had times
where I played for
a living. Put diapers on my son and ate peanut butter. I myself
for free very often now, but I don't play very often either. I'm
and my son is a grown man so I don't have to worry about money as
much. I feel
sorry for the kids who are trying to make these days.
