pointing out the fact that the sound people that are being discussed - -

called them "failed musicians" and i pointed out that many
people here could be considered to be failed by similar criteria.
i have a day job and don't consider failed myself, ya know? so why would
i consider ives to be "failed" - - or mussorgsky, or myriad
other people who have had families and day jobs AND did music.
(for that matter, most musicians who play for a living ARE doing a day
job, they're not doing THEIR music, they're doing someone else's. some
teach or write about music, it's all cool by me.)
the short answer: NO
would you consider Charles Ives a "failed musician"
