Rock Stars
Apr 8th, 2011 at 4:16pm
 
One thing I have noticed is that rock stars usually start their musical careers with the best of intentions. Once they become wealthy and start living a priveleged life, everything changes. Sure, their songwriting might be consistently good, but they are rarely honest about who and what they are after this transformation.

Rockstars sing about creating change and fighting corruption and hypocrisy, but they are walking contradictions. The truth is, they should be writing songs about they don't like touring or their daily massage oil is not warm enough.

If Aerosmith wants to eat the rich, then I assume they want to eat themselves. Most Aerosmith fans will probably never see the vast wealth or live a life of luxury like the members of Aerosmith.

One thing is for sure; The Romantics have stayed true to their rock and roll roots. Sure they have made some money from their music, but they are still active in music outside of their touring and recording with The Romantics. They are regular people playing good music for the people. The music of The Romantics is anything but self indulgent; it's made to remain timeless and hip to all generations.

It's all about staying true to yourself.  Once and a&^ always one!  That doesn't change!  Usually if you are good people inside, you stay that way.  Life shouldn't change your true heart and soul.
Look at Ringo Starr for example.  Gives back to charity all the time.  The proceeds from his artwork go stictly to charity.  He just did something for one of the children at Make-A-Wish.  Really great to just give back and remember where you came from.  That's what it's all about.  Not letting it go straight to your head!
The Romantics are all down to earth, great guys.  Wally always gives to charities and helps out where he can.

I think most rock stars are supposed to be rebels
to break the conservative status quo
going way back to jerry lee and elvis
to change a generation or shake things up
if they started out as poor boys let them make their own money from music which is very common in England
where most kids just have a sense of humour to get by

Which is why I LOVE the Romantics--I didn't get to know them until the past few years, but I have a feeling that they have always been nice to their fans! Smiley
