I guess many of you must have seen this funny bumper sticker in any random band's van somewhere - To a musician who works hard to "make it big", this line may have sounded offensive. But if you look at it realistically, it's almost impossible to make a proper living out of making good music nowadays (unless you are a manufactured pop star). So, isn't it better to keep your musical pursuits as a beautiful side thing you enjoy doing, and concentrate first on getting a stable job to support yourself and your family? I know this may be a controversial opinion. And I'll probably see a lot of in the replies. But I seriously want to listen to your arguments. What do you guys think?
