I wish I had the determination and stamina.,
This review is from: Broken Music: Memoirs (Hardcover)
If nothing else, this autobiography, like many I have read, make me realise, that I will never be sucsessful like those who have a driven want and stamina to make it to the top.
I play a few musical instruments and sing, and like so many, have considered going into that business called show.
Got close once, and was offered Bernie Turpin by a company as the producer.
It never came off (a long story) so still am just playing for pleasure only.
The things that stay in my mind are the parts where he and his fellow musicians travel many miles to just do one gig and then return home again all in one night, falling asleep at the wheel at one point!
A good read and just cements the feelings I have on trying to make it to the top in that in doing so, you all but have to sell your soul to get there.
I wish I had the determination and stamina!
