I know that just about every one of us here on UG wants to be famous playing music and being in a band and all that, but the actual chance of us getting famous or make a lot of money is very little. To get big in the music business takes a lot of luck, in my opinion. So if music happens to not work out for you, what is your alternative as a career path?

Mine would be being a mechanic. Cars and working on them is my number 2 passion right behind music. Especially import and high performance cars.

Most people just want to play good, meaningful music actually, not to get rich and famous.

Well Im currently in school working on my accounting degree, so once that is done I hope to get a job with one of the Big Four Accounting firms. As a little side note I still wanna be an accountant by day but a blues musician by night, that would be the ultimate for me.

Good one. My sister is with PWC, even when KPMG and E&Y rejected her. Good for you. I'm heading for either Clifford Chance or Slaughter & May (Law firms).

Do some sort of engineering in university. Get a job in engineering, study history then art then english over the next few years and get more degree's. Get an amzing job that I like and get payed lots because Im so educated. Retire at 48 with a 22 year old wife.

Realisticly, get drunk and drown in half a foot of sea water at age 19.
