God does pay my bills.

And the retirement plan is too die for. :wink:

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.

I think the venues are responsible for the music royalties thing...if they play any music, whether it's radio, jukebox, karaoke, or live band, they have to pay some sort of fee (or at least they're supposed to).
