    To All The Musician's Wives - From The Other Side......

    A little story from the inside. Not as a wife but as a musician. I don't know how to say this and much of this may end up being rambling since I just happened to stumble on this group and it struck a nerve... Believe me, this is a disease that is very hard to control. It's as...

    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.
