Music is life.
To be free to do all the music I want and not to get poorer because of that.
"Michelle" by The Beatles.
Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Jethro Tull, Yes, Marillion, Opeth, Dream Theater
Books, films, and life in general.
I want to make sincere and worthy music that's not created for the sole purpose of generating revenue but to convey actual thoughts, emotions, and ideas; to make people feel and think.
In an altered state of mind.
The musician's reality is a nightmare. It all should start by getting rid of all the corrupted and pathological overly-commercial structures exploiting artists and aggressively marketing worthless disposable pseudo-art to provoke consumerism.
So far, so good.
The corrupted music business model that's built entirely on the idea of exploiting the artists and maximising profit by promoting worthless mass production.
I attend concerts and buy merch directly from the artists.
To be a clown and an excellent marketer.
