Daver How much would you pay for a CD? (84* d) RE: How much would you pay for a CD? 26 Oct 10

A retired man is wakened one morning by some local boys banging on garbage cans. After three mornings of this he decides to do something about it, so he goes out to the boys and tells them he really appreciates their music and says he'll pay them $1 a day to drum for him.

After a few days of this he tells them he's having financial problems and can't afford $1 a day, but he'll pay them $.25 instead. The boys respond that there's no way they'll play for only $.25 and they never disturb him again.

Most musicians play because they love to play, and money distorts things. You have to support yourself financially, but for every professional musician who depends on selling CDs to eat, there a hundreds of amateurs with day jobs who are just as good but continue to play for enjoyment. What do we want to support?
