Subject: RE: Pinewoods - An evil Empire???
if someone were to compile a list of all the bands & singer-songwriters who are sure they are good enough to make it, but never seem to get enough bookings and recognition, I suspect it would make good wallpaper.

It ain't fair, it never WAS fair, and no one ever promised it WOULD be fair. There is politics, 'image', talent, luck, chutzpah, connections, choice of material, attitude, and a dozen other factors that determine whether some group & individual gets 'play time' in decent venues.......back when there were MORE places to play, there were more 'wannabes' competing for the stage time.

Wasn't it the Country Gentlemen who made an album years ago titled "Don't Give Up Your Day Job"?
