Question how many years could you play in a traveling cover band?

assuming you got the lucrative paying gigs on a steady roll, and you were happy with the band.

could and would you be into doing this full-time on the road, non stop, going to other countries to play. etc?

just curious is all.

If I liked the songs I guess I could keep it up for quite a while. I've always wanted to travel.

Forever? If I could get paid while being happy then why would I stop?
