A panderer and an artist

I want to be authentic.

And I don’t think that makes me an amateur; I think it makes me human.

A professional is someone disciplined enough to show up when they don’t want to, while a hack is someone who shows up to give the audience what they want to make themselves successful.

There’s no legacy in pandering.

Most pop and country music will die like disco, and Bob Dylan will live on.

By the way, isn’t it ironic one of the only songs from such a distinct era is “Staying Alive”?
