    If he thinks 8th and 16th notes is shredding, he obviously know nothing about music.

    Wait. Warm analog, dual quad audiophile-grade recordings of "Spirit in the Sky" and "This Land is Your Land?" Prayers: answered! Somebody please join this band so I can give you my $200 for the record.

    It's alarming, even a little scary, that this guy lives somewhere near me.

    I like this segment:
    "But 75% are the type of people who will drop 1000 dollars buying a record player.

    And 200 dollars on a record. In other words - a small but very wealthy and possibly very generous fan-base."

    I guess if you're gonna indulge in pipe dreams, might as well do it big. But I don't know of any folks who would drop $200 on a new release. An old, rarity can pull that kind of cash, but even then, it's a limited market.

    The guy is a whacko. As I was reading, I thought of this studio gig I did back in the '80s. The owner of the studio calls me up and tells me that there is some girl who wants to record a 3 song demo of originals. He told me how much it paid, and asked If I wanted to be the musical director for the project. I told him I'd do it. Well, the day came to meet in the studio to discuss the project with her. She handed me three lyric sheets. I looked the first one over and I asked her how the song went. She replied, "that one is kind of like Pat Benatar". I asked her what the changes were, what the melody was, and what key. She had no idea what that stuff was.

    So basically, I ended writing the songs for her, using her lyrics. I played all of the guitar parts, the bass parts, and some keyboards, and we had a guy come in to do the drum tracks. When the backing tracks were finished we had her come back to the studio to do her vocals. I taught her the melodies, but that ended up being a waste of time, because she couldn't sing. Or keep time. So as she recorded, I literally had to tell her when to start and stop each verse, otherwise she would have just kept "singing".

    It all worked out, though. The product was terrible, but I told her that I had to have more money for doing the extra work, and she paid up.

    ........like the story about the piano player who said to the singer just before they did their next tune, "OK, now on this song I want you to change the key up a half step in the middle of the second verse and then sing the bridge in 5/4 instead of 4/4." She looks at him and says "I can't do that!"
    He says "What do you mean you CAN'T do that? That's what you did the last time you sang it!"

    I think he left out his retirement plan and pension program. Also medical benefits.

    I was impressed that he plays drums on matted wood with a customized stick. Shows resourcefulness.

    It reminds me of the ads I see pretty often with lead vocalists, tired of singing karaoke looking for a backup band to make them a star!

    His post was far longer than most tweener, dreamer vocalist's though.

    Could be palatial, could be the setting of a slasher film starring ... you.
