I have always loved music and find that the music on the radio is sort of like a sound track to me life. So I have always desired to play music for others. During the 70's I toured full time and made more money than I had before or since. But The main reason I play is make somebody smile. To play the song they have not heard for years in a way that gets them going again. I love to put a smile on someones face. For that reason I spend most of my time in nursing homes playing for free because Its the best audience I have ever played for. I encourage you to do the same. Most of these people don't have any family or friends left and its a small thing for you as a musician to go there and play for an hour. Please do it. These people have done great things in the past, but now they sit around mostly forgotten. You can make a difference.
