Are You In It For The Money? – Gig Gab Podcast 138

Paul and Dave take on the important – and highly-sensitive – subject of what makes a real artist. Are you in it for the money? Does that matter? What message does it send to your fellow musicians and community if you communicate that message publicly? Paul and Dave discuss. Then a related discussion: what is the definition of a professional musician? That one gets discussed, too, by your two favorite weekend warriors on this week’s Gig Gab. Press Play… and enjoy!
