Success is a millstone, and everyone hates you. People liked you where you were underground and now you’ve sold a billion records through BandApp everyone thinks you’re a prick. There’s not really much you can do about this, but as long as you did it the right way you can rest easy in the knowledge that you never sold out.
It’s important at this stage of your career that you avoid all of the cliches associated with being an ageing rockstar, those being:
Having a ‘ManCave/GirlCave’ with a pinball machine and an F1 Racing car in it
Having a guitar collection that has be be housed ‘off site’ for insurance reasons
Trying to become a painter
Getting really into Tantric sex
Constantly wearing a snake as a scarf, with no shirt
Buying a Mountain in Ireland
OK so a lot of those are Bono/Sting but you can have points if you can name who the others are.
The key is, we’re here to make this happen, sell music, sell out shows, but never sell out.
