Bob Lefsetz says...

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll. If you're looking at shortcuts, you're doing it wrong. It's about slow and steady. It's not about taking a few years off before law school. It's about dedication, it's about no fallback position.

And you'll know if you're on the road. Because you'll have a coterie of people who won't LET you quit. Their lives will be ruined if they don't have you around anymore. It's NATURAL to want to give up along the way, but you shouldn't unless EVERYBODY who knows your music tells you to.

Music is not a diversion. It's life itself.

You know if you've got it. If you do, that's half the battle. The other half is dedication. You've got to want it more than anything. You've got to be willing to sacrifice relationships, real estate, remuneration, all in the desire to be part of the circus and MAKE IT!

Most people give up.

Then again, as stated above, most people just don't have it.

But some do. And believe me, for those talented folk there's a whole world of listeners out there just DYING to hear their material.

Thank you, Bob.

Chris Gelbmann "The Pink Beast Of Love" now available @ iTunes etc.

finally it's done: "The Pink Beast Of Love"-album is from now on available for download from the iTunes Music Store and most other legal download-platforms worldwide. So it's getting more and more convenient for you out there to get my music home to you. Great!

and a quick note for today: I will play in Graz at the PPC tonight, the first time SOLO for a long time. I will now sit down and sort out some songs for this show, which I haven't played for years...

all the best,
