Upon Receiving Fast Forward to Complaining

In the beginning After what began and started out as a bit of fun and the sheer love and joy of it With the simplest innocent of motivations nothing else intended Later it is then to becomes something far more than a passing phase or hobby You actually become both rich and famous So much so you become lost drawn into the fame game trap Surrounded by nodding yes men sucking the very life from you only out for what they can get Until what started out as merely wanting to be in a band and jam Grew into wishing to be listened to playing live and having fans singing back along And once that initial dream then eventually became achieved Why stop there next stop fame and fortune And when so to that dream as well finally came to fruition All they ever wanted then was no longer to be heard No longer to be popular for popularity sake People mostly say they like because they do not want to be deemed uncool But instead be thought of as an artist able to experiment and grow Without the fear of faltering sale's And being labeled by the critical press As being a sell out and being told Probably best they quit whilst they are ahead People are already beginning to complain Whatever they had is more or less about gone Bet they are only still doing it for the money And besides apparently they have such big ego's They can't even stand to be in the same room as each other anyway No surprise is it any wonder why their last album bombed

Sad that the Beatles all split up and are any of the still alive, Perhaps Paul McCartney is - once anyone becomes rich and famous they lose a great deal of the humanity and humbleness in them and only feed their egos and their bank balance. Nice one Christopher, hope you are keeping well. HUGS AND BLESSINGS, Jennifer.

When you get big egos within one band, and perhaps one receives more public attention than the rest, green eyed monsters can appear, as to why they stay together, my best guess it's to keep the brand name, and if a new album bombs, they always have their old back catalogue to sell seats whilst on tour, I'm very interested to know what was the inspiration behind this one Christopher, cheers David
