"Like someone said, you go nuts if you're a musician or an artist and you have to return to a life of mindless daily grind.  Artists who have to give up their artistic careers are the most miserable people alive.  They have a hard time working for anyone.  They can make it for a while because of their kids - or something that is bigger than they are - but for themselves, they are miserable.  If they have a job, sooner or later they get themselves fired.  Just can't handle it.  I can't stand the idea of being sentenced to a lifetime of being a machine."  - Thomas Edward Shaw (Eddie from "the monks")
