Don't ever ever believe anyone who tells you that you can just get by by doing the easiest thing possible. Because there's always somebody behind you who really wants to do what you're doing. And they're going to work harder than you if you're not working hard.
Never follow somebody else's path it doesn't work the same way twice for anyone... the path follows you and rolls up behind you as you walk forcing the next person to find their own way.
Men are going to go out on the road and they're going to find other women. So if you really want to save yourself a whole lot of heartache do not fall in love with somebody in a band. Just don't.
I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody's passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn't mind leading.

It's the same old story you've heard a thousand times. Somebody's trust gets broken. Somebody's left behind.
I was telling somebody just the other day there's technically such a hierarchy in this business.
