"I don't believe in "image" as the criteria for a successful musician.Most of todays musical "artists" AND their music is nothing but uninspired.assembly-line trash packaged by manipulative record execs and sleezy PR people.Most of these execs and their "proteges" wouldn't know music if they fell over it!..I couldn't care less if someone was on stage in a tattered housecoat,3 chins,a pot belly,one tooth and smelled like a landfill!..If the sound they were making was sweet,soft,loud,clever,sincere,heartfelt and MELODIC...they would get my applause and support. Music is an emotional art-form...not a modeling agency. The general public listens to music with their eyes...not their ears. The music is only as good as you LOOK! It's comparable to throwing away a diamond and keeping the box it came in. Image,age and any other "outside" thing,has nothing at all to do with TALENT! Music is indeed entertaining,but if all you want to do is be a clown,join Ringling Bros.
Music should be treated for what it is...a gift from GOD and a privelage and a blessing to be able to perform it,and it should be performed and listened to in the only place it matters...in your heart...........luv always
