After playing music for 30 years I’ve had pretty much every kind of experience either as an artist or simply a sideman. I’ve played to empty rooms and full stadiums.

Not so much a mistake as a general failing of mine is my lack of ability as a self-promoter.
Discuss the story behind the song.
It’s about not playing music (or any other artistic pursuit) for any kind of reward but rather because you can’t possibly do anything else.
