Sorry, music is a touchy subject for me. I played in bands for years. Make
it about the music, and enjoy yourself. That's what it should be.
For me it was only a year. We practiced every week for about a year, played one gig and promptly broke up.
That's okay, we were horrible.
At one time in my life I would have undoubtedly agreed with you.
Nowadays, I dunno.
Rock is genre, or more accurately a family of genres, not a lifestyle. Otherwise we'd have to state that many folks singers (Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Woody Guthrie), jazz musicians (it don't mean thing, if it ain't got that swing, do wop, do wop, do wop), country-western (Hank Williams, Sr.), and even classical musicians (Jacqueline DuPris) as rock stars.
Changing subjects, I'm excited about ye new machine Los Alamos Computers is building for me and my wife. After years and years, finally a machine with enough horsepower to seriously compose music. Eureka! While I'll never have enough manual dexterity to be an accomplished musician, I can write a decent tune.
