Once you go “Great music” …you can’t go back!
Music is an amazing gift to humanity. It’s really up to musicians to communicate this to people. When you are true to yourself you can play the best music possible at that moment. If you sell out, you are just a robot. I look at stages many times and it’s nothing but a girl with dancers and lip syncing. So very sad. That is not music, it is as far removed from music as you can get while having notes involved. Pfff. There is a huge gigantic chasm between music and “entertainment’ or “show business” – It’s up to us to reach people. What have you done lately to reach? You can’t do the same thing over and over and expect it to work if it hasn’t before. Reach!
