Like most musicians I started out with stars in my eyes, dreaming of making it to the big time. Fast forward 16 years later and I am still dreaming. A few years and a band ago, I really had issues with the amount of success I had achieved and the fact that I had wanted to be further along. Which led to band arguments and a lot of self doubt and unneeded frustration. Since then I have become more comfortable with the idea that I may not achieve the goal I had set (playing bass in an original pro touring band). But I refuse to give up. So my question is are you still chasing the dream? And if you have given up, have you changed your goals? Also what is your dream? I can imagine that for some it may be as humble as playing their first live show, or maybe going from an indie label band to a Major label band. And at what point to you stop trying?
