    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.

    I have been married to a musician for ten years. We were practically kids ourselves when we got married, and neither of us knew what we were getting into. Our marriage is solid, and generally good, but the band is certainly the one thing we have fought about throughout...
