I am a perspiring drummer, and aspiring songwriter. Years ago I was working with a member of Buck Owen's band (Terry Christoffersen) in a side project. This the guy who replaced Don Rich! Terry is a VERY talented Steel player, guitarist and vocalist too (I hate him) kidding...I was trying to pry a good story out of him one night, when I realized DUH, those are all BUCK'S SONGS he plays on... which is cool enough, but to write the songs... WOW! I started doing the math... the songwriter gets paid from every Cd sold, radio, downloads, ringtones etc. The guys that played on it (with all respect) get to listen to it...my dream of playing a drum track on a famous song seemed like I didn't think this through. I'm going to hunt down my high school guidence counsellor and kill him. But my new dream of writing songs begins! Having a hit song is something to tell your Grandkids about someday or pay for their college... well, If your gonna dream...dream big! I learn something in every song I write and it gets more exciting all the time.
