Quote from a letter in the book Epistolary Rex

“I tour playing music for a living, have done for years and years. It used to be the records mattered, (and they still do to me and a few others), but basically for most people they seem like an adjunct to the concert line, now. Once upon a time music was a gateway to the forbidden world, to magic, the invisible, to danger too… and the extent to which that is still true is a measure of its worth as a calling. It can’t be about the money. It’s gotta be about love, spells, the feel, where you get ’em, secret knowledge, turning the world around, freedom, true escape and redemption, or there’s no point in playing it, and less than no point for people to listen.”
