Hey, Sans. That may be the case - 'working for God,' and all that, but that wasn't Ned's point; God doesn't pay his bills.
I think Ned's point was more along the lines of - if you don't give the people what THEY want, then maybe you wouldn't be as welcome.
And - a musicican who is not as welcome as the next musicican in line is out of a job, eh?
And there is ALWAYs someone willing to take your place on stage.
My feelings exactly. I do both originals and covers and covers are theft and a gift at the same time. I use them sparingly but unless you are really really good, it's hard to get by on originals alone.
