Well, if you go into a record store, and you see an album by someone you've never heard of, and know nothing about, with no liner notes, are you gonna buy it instead of the one with any one of those three?
Any chance i will ever have of getting off the dole and back playing is if somebody knows about my music, not me.. so far nobody does.. still, after 35 years. if someone comes to my page, they will not see any reviews such as 'i like this' or that's good' or 'that sux lemons'.
The reason almost nobody's heard of me after 35 YEARS of gigging is mostly that the press, also, did nothing...
You've heard it said that the only bad press is NO press... well i can attest to that, but in fact the only bad press is no press ABOUT THE MUSIC.
I can distinctly remember the second to last gig that the Alhambra hotel ever held, in Victoria, and we played it that night... the whole entertainment staff of 'Monday' magazine were there... i could see them bangin on the table and digging the boogie we were laying down... all original or remakes...
Not a word was EVER mentioned in that paper..
so nobody ever knew..
anyone coming to my blog will see MY opinion of the songs i post but other than the couple of comments on a couple tunes, by one of the only 4 readers i know about (thank you guys, sincerely...!)
the rest is... well,nobodys gonna take the time out to listen if there isn't a single comment om any of these...
Thiis isn't a hobby... it's what i spent most of my life doing... but if i'm horribly deluded, and these really DO suck, at least id like to know, cuz then it's GONNA be a hobby an i'm hangin it up...
So i'm gonna post a couple that i THOuGHT were good.. in case i really AM deluded...
