I’d Get to the Top of the Mountain if It Would Just Stop Fucking Growing
Dia Frampton

I not only think that it hurts if you don’t follow an artistic heart… I’m absolutely sure it is destructive. But look, I’m 51, you probably are never gonna buy one of my CDs or pay for a ticket to my concert. But I’m still gonna make them and perform where and when I can. I haven’t ever bought one of your CDs or attended your concerts… but you still made and did them. That’s because you can’t NOT do that. You’ll figure out ways to make money and maybe one day something will click with music. But remember success is following the path that you love, I know tons of people you never heard of who make their living and pay their bills performing. Don’t equate fame with success and anonymity with failure… Bach had been dead for years before he became famous. But he was always good.
