when i was in college i took a public speaking class and dropped it after 2 weeks. maybe it was because i had nothing to say but i really think it was due to being super shy…my how things change. this year im one of the speakers at the digital music forum west conference on oct 7-8. this conference looks pretty good and im honored to have been invited. plus, it’s at the roosevelt hotel and how do u not end up at the pool with a drink in your hand when ur there? doesnt happen. i have been enjoying the speaking opportunities that have been coming my way this year because it gives me the opportunity to connect with even more struggling musicians that are looking for answers. it’s a pretty rough line of work these days and we should all be helping each other out. as a general rule i think that if u can help someone that’s in ur line of work facing the same obstacles and hurdles that u have faced then why not help them. it’s dickish not too. so… if u have roughly 800 bucks for a ticket come say hello. damn…that’s pricey but i think it includes a prostitute and a personal assistant in your gift bag so all is not lost.
speaking of speaking here’s a song called speak by i will never be the same. more on that band in an upcoming post though.
