    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...

    Married To The Music.

    I married my husband in December 2011. We have been friends for many years, and hit it off great when we decided to be together. I struggle with the musings of a musician everyday, just like any other musician's wife. I support his band all the way, and believe in them like no...

    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.

    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...
