Music is something that existed in me when I landed in this world. My mother said before I could walk I would drag pots and pans out of the kitchen cabinets and bang on them. Thankfully I was born to parents who supported my interest and never complained when I joined school band at age 10 and got my first real drum to play. Through many years playing concert music, marches, jazz and stage band through high school I developed a broad appreciation for many styles of music. Playing in my first regularly working rock band at age 15 with a Neil Young tribute band, Harvest, I learned the art and fun of entertaining people with my craft. Now at age 56 after gigging steadily with many people through the years I can’t imagine life that didn’t include making music. The language of music has allowed me to join 3, 4, or more strangers on a stage and play songs together unrehearsed that not only sound great but prove the power of a musical conversation. Music to me is a part of life and something that brings people together regardless of background, etc. etc....and just equalizes everyone into a single group of fun loving people. Music is the key to a peaceful world in my opinion.
Music is life. It gives me life
To be at a concert of Neil Young and to be able to be called up on stage to play like a hurricane with him and the band.
Making sure everyone had food to eat and clean water to drink.

Live your life and be happy with it.
Don't be concerned with money. Make the music you like and don't change for anyone. The best improvement would be musicians refusing to play for free and instead recognizing their talent has value.
I love drooble. The best social media site for musicians.

Yes. I go out and support bands playing and buy their music.
