Great episode Jay! I can definitely relate and it does get me thinking about my personal musical history (journey if you will). I can easily make a ready list of how or why my bands didn’t succeed. In most cases, compromise was the main roadblock – nobody was in the mindset to give anything up for “making it” or even trying to make it.

Thanks Clark! Yeah it’s difficult ‘cus no one wants to feel like they are a ‘sell-out’ but just about everyone has to adjust things they are doing if they want to make money in a creative field.
