have you ever thought that, even though you have great guitar skills, you spend your days as a humble pitmonkey? while other guys that can barely play a C chord make heaps of cash? what do they have that you don't? how has society treated you wrong?

First of all, I'm not interested in being famous. At least at this point in my life.

Second of all, i don't have adequate material to be "discovered"...

Because it's not the early 90s anymore. No-one wants a message of f*ck you and apathy; it's all about "my girlfriend left me I'm so depressed."

I was on today tonight once. The camera was panning out and it got to me so i picked up a little kid, tucked him under my arm and ran off. Then my friend and i started to kick each others arse. Anna Coran would've been like "what the **** just happened?" But Anna Coran can't play guitar for shit and she's more famous than me so wheres the justice in that.

great guitar skills =/= great songwriting skills

...

Believe it or not, most casual music listeners don't enjoy endless guitar solos.


A lot of UGers are stuck in the 70s and completely out of touch with what is popular today....which is fine, but it's not going to help them make a career out of music.
#22
because, and i think i speak for most of the pit here, i am way too freaking lazy and apathetic to give a crap
#23
Ever thought all the 'maistream' acts have songs xD not just big guitar wanks only guitarist want to listen to. work on songwriting not guitar playing (songwriting improves you as a guitarist anyway)
#25
Nowadays you can become famous if you write a crappy pop/rap/house song with 2 chords and you are lucky (if you know producers, people working at the record labels, etc). The problem is: I don't want to write these songs, I prefer to play my rock and metal and remain underground.
#26
Because I refuse to let some Simon Cowell type person tell me what to do. Instant fame and fortune can be yours if you do as your told, manufactured and then packaged to the public. But I could never do that. If I become famous, it'l be done my way. But sod fame; I'd rather be a bumblefoot/buckethead type guy who makes enough money off his music to live comfortably, but without the trappings of fame.

I'm not that good looking, my music isn't made for untrained ears that just want a beat in the background instead of art, and I simply didn't have luck.
That's supposing that I'm playing for 20 years instead of 3.
