I read an interview where you mentioned that your yearly salary as a musician was similar to that of a 7-Eleven employee. Does that money mostly come from shows?
Yeah, mainly from shows and songwriting. Now my salary is more like a 7-Eleven manager. So that’s a step up. But most people make money from shows, not from record sales. When I was over in Italy, they were saying no one buys records anymore. So the new paradigm is, it’s all about the live show.
