Default Re: A petition, and the sorry state of Australian music

Fair point. I guess any profession that doesn't bring in the $$ will be a poor relation, although metal has the rep as music of rebellious youth which isn't going to win it any extra brownie points.

The didgeridoo idea isn't the worst I've heard haha - probably the optimal musician situation for getting in would be a money-making Aussie bush balladeer a la John Williamson.

All in all, musicians are usually seen as a bit suspect by conservatives here. Healthy, decent, upright people are into family, home renovation and decoration, cooking, making money and sports [sic]
