    agreed, very cool ... i remember those nights sleeping in bowling alleys, and groupies couches. or in the van, scraping for food, and gas to get to the next gig, that oh so close next big break.. a lot of good memories, it is who i am.. where the passion to create has gone, the passion to still play has not, and is strong as ever.. now in my mid 40's, i'm very blessed to be able to still go out on the weekends and make some noise with some very talented musicians..

  • I started singing with a jam band in my early 40's. We used to do lots of house parties, benefits, etc. Lots of fun. I got to live a few fantasies and jammed with some name musicians.

    Can't say I had a great voice or played mouth harps all that well...but, I can make'm laugh and I can make'm dance!

    Yeah it definitely defines a part of our Souls as musicians. Oh the stories I'm sure we all could tell. I wish I could have made it big in my early twenties because Lord knows I wouldn't have the drive, energy or determination to go on a World Tour now. :)

    Yeah, because hair band music is way better than Outkast, for example. You sound like your parents describing Elvis' gyrating hips or something. Uggh.

    Great stuff, Todd.

  • i don't think people who write and/or produce hip hop is lazy. i do actually consider them artist, but it drives me fricken nuts when they are introduced as musicians...

    unless you actually physically play an instrument, you are not a musician.. if all you do is sing you are not a musician. ...if you spin turntables you are not a musician.... if you are a drummer, well then you hang out with musicians (joke)....

    musicians create music through instruments, not pre-recorded music... if rappers want to be considered musicians, then go pick up a 1.79 kazoo or mouth harp, and throw some of them tracks in your mix, now you're cooking with oil....

  • I always invite guitarists to take a seat behind my drums and I pick up the guitar. Something miraculous happens. They realize they stink, and that the drums are more of an instrument than the guitar, (which I have been playing for 20 years)...The joke is on them.

    Artistry is artistry, musicianship and DJ are not in the same category.

  • nothing better than musical dick measuring.

    Music is music. You might not like it, but it's still music. Comes in many forms. go listen to 'Hot Poop' or 'The chrome-plated megaphone of destiny' by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and tell me if you think it qualifies as music. It does. I'm not really into most rap or hip-hop music, but I respect the guys who do it and do it well, I respect the technicians creating interesting beats and I think it's just as much music as anything else is. craft is craft. Get over yourselves.
