When I bought Thrice’s latest album I thought about Dustin’s 3 daughters under 5 years old. When I bought Rocky Votolato’s vinyl I thought about his son Kienan and his wife April. When I saw Matt Pond PA at a show I paid for and then bought the 7” record I thought about the medical bills he would incur from the broken leg he got on that tour. When I bought my younger brother’s band Vanna’s latest album on iTunes when I could have easily emailed him to send me the tracks, I thought about the 4 other guys in the band and the trailer and gear they had stolen this past year.
As a musician and first and foremost - a music fan - I’m more thoughtful about how I spend the little money I have on music these days. I’m no saint and I’m not claiming to be but I am proud to support the people and lives behind the music I love with my money because to me - it’s worth it. It directly fuels the fire to continue the music making that has become the soundtrack of my life. I’m a romantic, I’m old fashioned & I love music. Without music, my life would be a whole lot darker.
To those people who have brought wonderful music into my life in the past and present - I thank you and hope you continue to make the music you want to make and I will be there to enjoy it with you.
