TV is just advertising for your live gig, so I'm playing whichever show is gonna get me the biggest crowd.
I tried the religion scam in Miami, so I know how hard that gig is. But, if you can get it to work, starting your own religion is a license to print money.
What you do is, you just do the gig, enjoy, get on with it, and treat the rest as horse doodle.
If somebody loses a gig because they publicly show up at [Donald] Trump's inauguration, I guarantee you somebody else is going to hire them and pay them more than they were making whenever they got fired.
Obviously I still gig on my own, but I've always heard my music with a band.
Music is a gut thing. You're working in a medium which is more in touch with the primal than the modern. A gig is a ritual. There's a congregation.
I see myself as a comic but the acting helps sell tickets for gigs.
Lamplighters are the guys who manually turned on all the street lamps in London and turned them off. That was the gig in the 1930s in London.
