Charles Stephen Arnest / Bio

"It’s a concept musicians only have a passing familiarity with, since they are only rarely afforded it. But they know the drill going in. Once you decide to become a musician, you’re stuck for life. You’re always a musician, whether you’re kicking out the jams or breaking up the band, whether you’re awaiting the next high or weathering the latest low. That’s the way it goes. That is your burden. Music becomes your life, and when you are in, you are in...It's probably easier to get out of the mafia" - Charles Stephen Arnest
