I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE…There are many passionate hard-working bands who never get the big audience they strive for. Whether they self-destruct, have unlucky timing, or just don’t quite have what it takes, their stories are often more entertaining and poignant because it. This song is dedicated to every person who has ever played live music for tips, beer, or a sense of pride anywhere. I hope you enjoy it.
