Musicians are at the top of the food chain.
The farmer’s child becomes a teacher.
The teacher’s child becomes a doctor.
The doctor’s child becomes a lawyer.
The lawyer’s child becomes a musician.
Our responsibility as musicians is to bring the message of peace, love, hope and joy into the world.
Do your job and you will be duly rewarded.
Love and music,
