On Second Thought, Maybe I Don't Want to Be a Rock Star.

I've stood and watched guys and girls play (mostly guys, mostly guitar), and wondered what it would be like to make an instrument talk... to connect with a crowd... to say something with lyrics.

But lately, I'm not so sure. Maybe I wouldn't want to be a musician. Maybe just being an obsessed music fan is enough.

Because the way it looks from the fan side of things, it sure is tough to be a rock star these days.
