CRASH quote of the day: Most people assume that the music business is based on auditioning, auditioning, and auditioning. I will say this, the majority of gigs that are happening in the world are all happening because of personal relationships. Even if you do have to audition, a personal relationship is usually established with somebody in that organization. You never know where you next gig is going to come from. It can come from the secretary at the studio at the front desk. It can come from the wardrobe assistant. It could come from the stylist. It could come from the assistant manager. It could come from the road manager. Someone in the band. The moral of the story is to have lots of friends and know lots of people. More importantly a lot of people need to know you and have to be able to trust you and put their faith in you.

I make it a point to study the habits and actions of successful people from many different fields and businesses. I have noticed a common denominator for individuals and companies that achieve a high level of success and notoriety. At a certain point, things become comfortable, people take things for granted, they lose the spark and the quality of their work starts to decline. Don’t let this happen to YOU! The entities that continue to push themselves hard and look to consistently reinvent themselves, develop new skill sets and create new product lines are the ones that survive and continue to thrive.

Whenever we play stadiums, I will go up to the highest seat (and I don't like heights) … but I will march up there just to get some perspective. I know a person paid full price to sit here. Somehow I have to set myself apart and be an entertainer and reach that person. If I do, maybe he will have the time of his life and continue coming to our shows.

Don’t take suggestions and criticisms personally. Taking direction and criticism without being offended or becoming angry is a skill. It’s the one of the many skills that will make people remember you and recommend you to their friends.

You can’t have a bad day. The one time you have a bad day will be the day that an influential ‘tastemaker’ or ‘gatekeeper’ will witness your less than stellar performance. Always play your best.
