Re: Have I sold out?
It is my full-time job that allows me to pursue drums. Otherwise I would not have the capital to invest in the equipment or the gas to get to practice and gigs. While I love to play drums and I love music in general, that was not the career I picked. As a matter of fact, I didn't even start playing drums until I went to college. Since graduating from college, I have worked my way up through the ranks at an engineering company to a very high level of management, making a very good living through a lot of hard work and dedication. So now I get to play in two bands as well, so it is the best of both worlds. Being a sellout is the furthest thing from my mind. What I've done is use my God-given talents to establish a good life for me and my family, and hopefully set myself up for retirement in about 10-12 years. The fact that I can gig regularly with two bands just adds to the quality of my life.
