“A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.”
Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to-letting a person be what he really is.

Interesting that they point to crowdsourcing, sponsorship and streaming (really!?) as the main predictions for musician’s future income.
Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.
