“We must act out passion before we can feel it.” – Jean-Paul Sartre

And I was afterall in a rock and roll band, or getting one together, for 10 years.  And just the other night, I was at a friends house, and he has a drum set in his living room.  Along with guitar amps and base amps, he even used to have a microphone.

And I just had to ask the one guitar player that was over there if he would want to start a band, him playing guitar, my other friend playing drums or bass, and me being the lead singer.

He said, the one with the guitar, that you had to be a one man band.  I’m not sure I agree with him, but he was and is entitled to his of view of things.  He didn’t want to start a band.

But I think my other friend thought that maybe it would be a good idea, and it SEEMED like he was trying to talk the guitar player into my idea of the band.

I think you could really write some great ROCK AND ROLL songs about improvement and sales.  Money.

But I want to write them, because when I get to rambling there’s no telling what’s going to come out and I don’t know that I want anything out of my control coming out.

So I choose to write the songs.  I may even come up with an album and put it up for sale to my list.  Maybe that, along with some ebook sales could make a life for me.  We’ll see.  Only time will tell.

But I’m optimistic.

But really, passion.  You gotta live with it.  It will help you get stuff done.  Big stuff.  You could use your passion to fuel the life of your dreams.  You just gotta do it.

And there are a lot of ways to do it.  You could paint!  I say get them started young doing stuff and maybe they’ll stick with it and really become masters.

Or they’ll go off and do their own thing, like I did, and try and become a rock and roll star.  Really, I did it.  But there wasn’t much dancing from me and sometimes I would forget the words to songs and that would sort of ruin it.

I was at the point where I had to keep a binder up on a music stand to get through the set.  But I was in a band and we were playing good covers at times.

I really did pursue rock and roll for about a good ten years, really a little more.  And Snoop Dogg said that that’s what it takes to master something.  I don’t know that I’ve mastered it, but I can do some form of it.

It would really help if I had a band that came to me to make decisions.  The last band I was in named the group Tigerstyle.  A name that I didn’t really get.

But we went on and played, and I was their lead singer and sometimes guitar player.  And it was a hard thing to do.  I wanted it bad!  I would totally put myself out there in a rock and roll way, a little on the quiet side, and say take control of the crowd.  Like a rock and roll lead singer can potentially do.

Because I did spend a good deal of time on it, and I wouldn’t want to go without including it on my personal blog.  And I just did a little more of it, just yesterday.  I wrote a song before a friend got there, and recorded it in the short time after he left.

All I can say about it is it’s a good release.  It just might be something you want to do.  Play the guitar and sing songs.  You could really be you.  It’s fun!

It also can be dark.

But that’s where I think writing shines a light on rock and roll.  Because the words can be deliberate!  Not just schizophrenic rambling.  And we can write about grow, passion, improvement, and things like that.

I think that could really help people, and the music would be even better!

So I’ve composed this song I’m going to share with you, along with the lyrics for your viewing and listening pleasure.

“How Do We Make A Million Dollars”

 

I wanted to write a song for you

Don’t know what to do

Just gotta take action

Do what you do.

How do we make a million dollars,

How do we make a million dollars

Join a network marketing company?

Sell ebooks online.

What I know is you gotta have a blog

And you gotta have a list

That’s how you get customers,

That’s how you give your gold a kiss…

How do we make a million dollars?

Can it be done by blogging and making videos?

I know it can be done,

There are others already doing it…

So there’s the house, the vacations

The charity, the church,

Homeless people, and people you know

Giving it away to your family and friends.

 

Thanks for reading and listening,
