Why I play music

I don't play music to become a star.  I don't play music to be cool.  I don't play music just to get out of the house.  I don't play music to become rich.  I don't play music to get the girls attention.  I don't play music so that the newspapers will notice me.

Would I cringe if I became a star, or if people began to think I'm cool??  No.  Would I be upset if music supplied my income? No.  Would I be upset if the papers noticed? Of course not.  I have the best wife in the world so I definetly don't care if girls notice me.  My point is that those things aren't what motivate me, they aren't what continually draw me to a guitar or drive me to continue to book shows.

I play music because it moves me.  I play music because I love the feeling it gives.  I play music becomes the gift was given to me.  I play music becomes sometimes things I write or sing about connects with someone and they don't have to tell me, I can see it.  I play music because it keeps my mind sharp.  I play music because I FEEL it.  I play music because when I'm down or upset, it can change my mood - lift my spirit.  I play music because it's in me - I don't even have to have an instrument - I can hear it, see it, it's always there.

This is why I play music.....
