As far as artists and musicians, they don't retire. They might tour less.
I've always felt like an imposter, in the whole, as a musician.
I have never learned to read or write music so I am not a virtuoso musician like the others you mentioned. I am completely unable to play like them because I never learned classical music, I just developed my own crazy style!
Visible Faith is an expression of my Christian faith which must be visible to be real! I gave the name to the collection of musicians who worked with me on the record.
I became a musician so I wouldn't have to get up at 6 in the morning.
I'm a musician because I love it and it's supposed to be fun.
A friend of mine took me to Memphis advised me that I should get in the musicians' union. He gave me a set of drums and said, Stay on the job, son.
I don't have to compete in the charts. I can just be myself as a musician, a songwriter and play with the musicians that I really love.
I think performers are all show-offs anyway, especially musicians. Unless you show off, you're not going to get noticed.
Not only did I get to play with these great international musicians, but I also had the opportunity to jam with the local celebrities in Toronto, people like the Walsh Brothers, David Wilcox, Kim Mitchell and the like. It was a great learning experience.
For too long, musicians have been the greatest enemy of music. Their lack of desire to proselytize is a kind of betrayal.
The fountain of youth with the youthful young musician is one meaning, and the fountain of youth with the youthful energy of the leader is another meaning.
All the people I hung out with were musicians.
We were playing, not for the drunks, but for the musicians, because it was more intellectually challenging. We needed somewhere to put our energy to show that we were growing, and as we started to achieve this, people came to hear us musically.
It costs a lot of money to make an album in a studio in New York with a producer and musicians. I have to pay a publicist every month. I have to pay for mastering, production, the manufacturing of the discs. Then, to promote an album properly, you have to spend a lot of money.
