I've been thinking about this a lot lately,, particularly because I'm out of school now,, and my band is getting some attention by the record labels. Actually I should know within a week if we're getting signed by one of them. BUT,, If that doesnt work out,, what then? Do I work at a car lot for the next 35+ years and look back and say "wow,, I wish that had worked out",, or do we keep working at it as a band until either a) we make it,, or b) we are forced to conform to the reality of the 9 to 5,, Monday thru Friday grind after we run out of patience! Will I be playing bass every day 30 years from now,, or will my time and money go towards (God forbid!!!) a large family? Even if we DO get signed,, that in itself doesn't mean much. Could I spend my time trying to get noticed in the music biz,, when I could be at college furthering my education for a modern day job. Oh well,, only God knows!! Actually,, this post really doesn't make any sense at all,, but i needed to vent a little!!
