I’d like to clear some things up. If you’re playing music simply to get famous, get money or get laid, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons. People like that absolutely make me sick. Music isn’t about how many times you can score with girls or how many fans you can get. Fame should NOT be like that. Life isn’t about how many people may like your post or blog, or how many followers you have. People who are in the industry should be here because it’s what they love to do, not because it’s the image they want to portray. You can create an image that is selfless and good, it doesn’t have to be a ”who’s more hardcore” image! That’s the kind of things this younger generation needs, people to look up to. I’m sick of watching certain people get famous. The ones that all they do is get fucked up, smoke weed, and curse. I hope I’m not the only one who see’s that this is the way things are becoming. Asking Alexandria became a HUGE national band a couple years back and since then have continuously created the image of a “badass” band. I’m not saying it’s not fun to get drunk, smoke weed or whatever. I’ve done my fair share! Anyone can curse on a stage. Anyone can get drunk. I feel it takes a true role model to use that stage for a certain purpose and to try and create something real and reach into people’s hearts and pull out the good in everyone. There are people in the Dallas music scene who are some of the nicest people I’ve had the honor to ever meet. People that don’t even play the music as well. I feel like it’s people like that who need to rise above all the bullshit. I want to reach out to people and take hearts and relate to them, twist them, and mend them. The only way I know how to do that is through music. Although one voice can only go so far. I’m not here to try and complain or bitch about anything, simply stating how I feel. I haven’t actually blogged on this thing since I first got it and it feels nice to get some things out, and if you’re actually reading this right now…it’d be nice to get some feedback or views on some of these things. But I’m not looking to argue.
