I on the other hand, rock only in my studio. I eschewed a musical career for the visual arts. I just couldn't hack both. I was a bit soured on that by my brother and father anyway. That's another story.
I'm 57. I'm guessing you're a bit older, about my brother's age.
I have yearned to perform but create in my studio and work away scoring my animations.
I was in my teens in the '60s but hung out with the older crowd.
Turned on early! (14)
You should be VERY proud of your career. I'm jealous old man!
Obviously that vid is not me actually playing or the same orchestra, but the same song. Never the less it was a large orchestra and great fun.
Sounds great fun doing what you are doing in your studio and in fact probably more rewarding than most gigs. At least you are doing your own stuff..
57 eh?....not far behind me then...
I am proud and frankly sometimes amazed I have managed to survive for so long playing guitar. Mind you in todays climate I may well think twice about doing it as a profession if I were say 20. It's definitely not the same with regard work as it used to be.
