    Does anyone else here know that paging cables and being a runner on a show are the two biggest itch jobs there are?!

    danielhayles

    And by itch i mean bitch, lollll

    Hey Storminator, Thanks for taking the time to look at my links, I appreciate any views I can get on these sites! Thank you. I’m actually still a student of jazz – but I do a lot of stage handing on the side as it’s good for developing arm strength and I enjoy meeting musicians from all over the world. With regards to your comments about never requiring backstage passes – I recently performed at the Wellington International Jazz festival, sharing a stage with such Jazz & Music legends as Roy Ayers, Roberto Fonseka and Brad Mehldau, and yes, I… Read more »

    @danielhayles: That’s bloody amazing. Man I wish I were a bottom feeding jazz musician from New Zealand. Or that I could share a joint with Mehldau. Damn.

    @dieAntagonista:

    I know, right! I’m so lucky!!!

    And Prince rules.

    dieAntagonista

    @danielhayles: I was being serious, you know. It sounds exciting to me anyway.

    danielhayles

    @dieAntagonista: Awesome! I’m into Prince too, pretty sweet

    Come on mister storminator. Why you gotta be so mean. I actually like the music he has up on his MySpace. A lot.

    And as for you knowing what kind of music will never take him anywhere – a lot of so called professionals thought they knew a lot, when really they didn’t know anything.

    Prime example:

    “We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.”
    — Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beatles, 1962.

    @storminator: Yeah that’s about what I imagined he would be like. But you know, sometimes I wonder if it’s even possible to create anything this brilliant and not go insane.

    Ah, cable paging. Or “pagle cabing” as Mike Manning calls it. I don’t miss that at all. Like you said, it is easy money but it’s certainly not my favorite thing to do. And take it easy on the poor guy! People are allowed to dream :o)

    dieAntagonista

    @storminator: I like old. And reality. Yes that’s true, they’re pieces of shit, and I know that the Beatles’ story is a common thing but still. You never know what’s going to happen next, not in this day and age. Artists have proven that they can become famous all over the world, just from producing little tracks in their bedrooms. The success stories of those people are getting crazier and crazier. From what I’ve seen anyway. But since you work in the music industry with shows and all that, I guess that’s different yeah. Then again, if he enjoys it… Read more »

    @dieAntagonista: You’re very kind, thanks so much! @storminator: Hey man, I know for a fact that Keith Jarrett has an appearance fee of $50,000 per show. And I’ve heard that Herbie Hancock gets at least double that – and they’re averaging a gig a week at the moment. That’s on top of cd sales, royalties from radio play and, in Herbie’s case, hundreds of samples of his tunes being used on Hip Hop & RnB records… I don’t know but I happen to believe $50,000/week is a pretty good salary! Better than pagle caging anyway. Oh, and add “personal mic… Read more »

    @storminator: I forgot to add – my biggest crowd to date was 15,000 people – this was more than once during high school, but I wasn’t the main act. The biggest crowd at one of my own shows was 1400 for a jazz trio concert at the theatre in my hometown – age 16. I’m twenty now and living in a new town but as I say – I play on national TV every week, I can’t really see any gig being better than that without leaving the country. Seeing as you asked! 😀

    @storminator: hahahahahahahahaha you’re so funny 🙂

    danielhayles

    @storminator: UGH neal peart. SUCH TALENT. And no, Herbie’s fee is $50k for himself – not for the whole act. From the sounds of it you must earn far more than him for your amazing talents… Oh and what was the one song? I can’t narrow down his list of hundreds of Grammy-winning songs to just one ‘hit’. Did you mean to say your absolute favourite tune? I don’t need a recording contract, I’m only 20 years old. I’m glad you think your mum’s hot. Nice work. And well done on the singing – I’ll hit you up to perform… Read more »

    . Normally I have no beef with you but on this one…well, you’re being a dicklock.
    BTW, where do you think rock evolved from? Blues and Jazz. If you’re going to talk all this smack about music, you might want to consider learning some history about the subject. Otherwise you just come across as an arrogant, ignorant, bleeding hippo vag. Aside from that, your personal experiences in the industry sound pretty cool. Hope you are able to continue them as long as possible.

    Hi, I check your blog on a regular basis.
    Your story-telling style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!

    A sense of foul play came to mind as her family described Michelle as a trustworthy, compassionate
    and responsible person. Even news so, if the state would allow it.
    Since then, the world may news never actually know
    whether or not any special services are required, etc. And you can see a progress screen as below.
