I swore off playing in cover bands years ago. Now I’m playing in one… We are getting ready to earn some money doing it next week.
Guess that’s the difference between cover and original musicians. Playing covers get you paid right away.. Original projects are for artistic pleasure and the “dreams” of one day making tons of money… Of course somebody has got to actually like your stuff enouph to buy it.
Then there’s the folks doing music for God. It’s either covers or originals too so the same rules apply… They are just doing “cleaner” songs. There are still certainly “Christian Rock Stars”
