Music is not their only job, but it certainly could be. Believe it or not, musicians can make money gigging. […] The post When I’m Not Working As A Brain Surgeon… appeared first on Greg Percifield.

This is a fun topic for me. Not just because I love talking about music, but because it is much easier to talk about the music of someone else, than it is my own.
