Hi Alice, I write a blog about rock and roll and the music business and I find when reading what I've written I'm just complaining. It's getting worse and worse. How can I get a better attitude about something I profess to love?
Change your "complaining" attitude to "expressing yourself." Face the wonderful fact that you love music from "then", and open your mind and ears to today's music "now". You just might be surprised to realize how awesome current music is.❤Alice❤
Hey Alice,I'm almost 60 and I'm crazily addicted to Rock n Roll. Playing Rock N Roll is my life's passion! I can't give it up, nor do I want to. In my head I still feel like I'm 18 years old with dreams of stardom and success. But, when I'm not on stage I feel invisible to the world, or even worse, I'm in everybody's way or looked down upon! I look down upon myself! I always believed that if I followed my dreams and if I worked hard enough I would achieve them. But I haven't. In fact, I'm to the point where I want to take my guitar strings off my guitar and hang my fingers with them . . . How can I feel better about myself and continue with my dreams, even if it all appears useless?
Nothing is "useless" with faith. All the dreams you've wanted to accomplish have been achieved long ago, and will continue. Admit it. How could you be invisible if you have the courage to communicate your deepest feelings? The only person who could be in your way or look down upon you is...are you ready for this...YOU! It's up to YOU to carry out your destiny and passion. Hey rock n' roller, how about starting right now? Like a brilliant rocker once quoted, " Don't think it won't happen, just because it hasn't happened yet."❤Alice❤
Hey Alice,I spent thousands of dollars on an expensive music institute to learn to become a professional musician and now I can't find a paying job. Can I sue my school?
Whatever money you've spent, has been used. Take the knowledge you DID gain from this "expensive music institute", and create some other plans. Look for NEW kinds of places to work. NO you can't sue the school, unless you had a contract that guaranteed employment after completion of required courses. Just chill out and let the inspiring energy in.❤Alice❤
Hi Alice! I'm in a Pittsburgh band (I've been with them over a year now, but the band's been working since the 90's), and I noticed you all covered Freddie Nelson! Is it possible to submit music to you all as a fellow Steel City band for review? We really dig Mr. Piper's groove, and it would be a huge help to have his informed ear!

Gee, I don't know. Another Pittsburgh band? I don't know if Greg can review both of them (just kidding). Here's the deal, he only writes "good" reviews, although it may not always sound like it. In other words, if he really doesn't like your music he won't say anything. And if he does really like your music he can still be pretty snarky about it (depending on the night before)so if you can accept those terms then leave a link to your tunes and roll the dice. Be aware that anyone reading this post will have access to your link so don't give away anything you don't want given away.
