    I Am A Dead Musician's Wife

    I miss him more than words can say. He died from cancer just 6 months ago. His music was part of my life just as he was and I doubt if I will ever find another man to relate to in the same way unless he also happens to be a musician. It's just that once the music gets in your...

    Married to a Musician

    Old Joke: What Do You Call a Musician Without a Wife Or Girlfriend?

    Answer: "homeless".     Having said that ... it's a hard living but rewarding if you can pull it off and I have a lot of respect for people who can pay the bills with their musical skills.
