I'm asking too damn much.

I want the musicians to feel appreciated. I want them to feel people were paying attention all those late nights, all those lost years, when they must have felt like they wasted their lives on a dream. I want rock stars to be content, even though the gig of being a rock star is inherently contentment-denying and soul-crushing and bitterness-magnifying and satisfaction-thwarting and even though it’s well documented that nobody devotes their lives to music unless they’re permanently insane. I’m just trying to make the most miserable people on earth feel a little less miserable. I’m asking too damn much.
