    Thank you Resa. I can assure you, I have pretty much of everything and everyone. This is what I do for a living: listening to music, reading and …writing about it. [music making doesn’t pay the bills…].

    I understand. My Norm had 2 bands and several record deals. He switched to doing soundtracks for film and television, where he made more money.
    Well, listen, read, write! I enjoy your blog. It’s entertaining and informative.
    Music: You might make a killing, but it’s hard to make a living.
