One thing that I have always been writing upon for ICY TALES, is ‘music’ or I would say it has been more about ‘guitar’ and its ‘technicalities’. This time, I am putting out my idea of writing on people who are into this beautiful deep ocean of melody and notes. These people are more of an unusual and difficult to understand for other people, and this unusualness of them shines much brighter when we are in talks of a life of ROCK ARTISTS. So, here are 10 reasons, why Rock musicians are different than other professionals :-
- Face a tight slap of failure
My loyal readers who are from other professions might feel that this is faced by everyone, but I personally feel that the slap of failure is much more tighter here.
The boys from American Rock Band LINKIN PARK faced rejections from around 38 record companies and ultimately got signed up by WARNER BROS RECORDS, and guess what they are called as the pioneers of rock genre today.
- EGO PROBLEMS
The ego of these artists is particularly high. They can not tolerate more against them. Due to this problem, many big bands have broken.
METALLICA’S drummer LARS ULRICH is well known for his egoistic attitude.
- HAVE SUFFERED GREAT PAIN
History is evidence that musicians have suffered great pain in their life, may be because of they losing their parents at an early age, financial problems or any other problem. May be that’s why their music is truly touchy. Chester Bennington of LINKIN PARK says that songs like numb, somewhere I belong, crawling come from his heart very naturally.
- Love for their work
They love what they do, and continue to do what they love. Their love for music is immense and it is something for which they have sacrificed everything.
Psychologists have revealed that people who have a taste for more heavier and complex music are very much organized than the people who listen to pop and other catchy music.
- Possessive about their genre of music
The community of this particular genre is very possessive for their music. I am not just talking about the musicians but also the fans who are very loyal to the genre, particularly death metal listeners are very loyal fans.
- DRUG ADDICTS
This has been a very common habit among the vocalists, instrumentalists of this genre. They feel that their creativity is more enhanced after they have consumed drugs.
Legendary blues rock guitarist JIMI HENDRIX, died to the overconsumption of cocaine and medicines.
- HARD WORKING
Practice, practice and practice is what they believe. They keep on working hard for their passion and wait for their success to speak their hard work and practice. They are all the time into practising their instrument
Kirk Hammett of giant thrash metal band METALLICA practices 16 hours a day!
- HUNGER FOR MUSIC
Rock musicians are every time hungery for music. They are ready to listen to heavy stuff even at midnights.
