Had them all...some too often...

That's absolutely true. Everybody around me thinks that way, that in order to be successful you need to be on mainstream medium, they can't even imagine the payola system, don't know the extensive world of music blogs and internet radio stations, the existence of music niches, think that everybody is into mainstream music and gets to know music only from commercial radio just like them, have no idea about digital music distributors, PR agencies that work with indie artists...

Anyway, they don't actually know anything about the new ways an indie artist can make it. It's such a naive mentality, a narrow-minded way of thinking that sometimes I get irritated when talking to these kind of people about my music goals.

what you really want to say is "nope, to all of those things, but I get more pussy on Thursday night than you do in a year, and I make more money at my day job than you have ever earned."

Thanks for the comments Jota! It's such a breath of fresh air to be in the company of other musicians that go through the same things; united we stand! :)

Music is part of the musician playing, so as long as you love it, you'll be just fine!

Keep it up! x

Nice article :) Only thing is it's written from the typical "bitter musician" perspective in my opinion.

"Still doing the whole music thing then?"
Sounds more like "Still chasing unrealistic dreams?"

The good thing is the more successful you are the better your answers will be. ;)
