I am still out here practicing and breaking reeds on this thing
called classical music!! It is getting tougher to to make a living,
but I still have live gigs with symphonies that pay a lot.
I, like Larry, and everyone else in the biz, question if anyone cares
anymore, that is until I play the next concert and the audience is
still there going nuts. I can pull in on spending and still make
ends meet on concerts playing Harmonica concerti. Lots of the side
stuff has dried up - jingles, teaching, B'way, ASCAP, film work - but
who cares. Let's all live poor for a while and make music for the
real reason we are alive in the first place.
Screw it. If I am going to go down, I am going down blowing the
Harmonica. Larry, think of it this way. The rest of the world works
their ass off at jobs they hate in order to save up some money for
retirement and buy a house, and then they watch it all go down the
tubes when these jerk offs gamble everything away on credit swaps.
It's a great time to be poor!!!
