In my particular instance, I came from a family that didn't have anything. Everything I earned in life I made. Myself. With songs that I wrote.
We've turned into a whining society.
Most of my arguments with musicians through the years have had more to do with their attitude about music, or their attitude about their own lives, or their personal responsibility. Music has never really been the big centerpiece of the fight.

I grew up in the suburbs and basically associate the suburbs with cultural death.
I'm not interested in pop art.
Calm, open debate, and logical thought drive strength to its maximum effectiveness.
Rock and Roll is still asking people like me to live up to the old guard's concept of what success is but it doesn't mean anything.
I do not trust those who make the vaccines, or the apparatus behind it all to push it on us through fear.
