Re: The "Support" thread...
My wife is very supportive. That helps a great deal. I've had the opertunity of opening her mind to all sorts of music. I have friends with girlfriends or wives who give them a very hard time with their music. My kids are also supportive- hah! Even though they are very young still. My oldest loves to sing and dance to my songs, and shows great interest in drumming. Today I worked on a new recording and he was dancing with me (he's only 2.5yrs old). All of my friends give me great support.
