1% Musicians Should Pay 70% of the Donations

July 24, 2018

Dear Readers,

This post looks at musicians and charity.

Did you know that 1% of musicians make 70% of all the money?
They do. Most are the ten or so teen pop stars that are constantly promoted over and over, year after year. The rest are touring classic rock acts you’ve seen touring year after year.

I don’t like the disparity and want to see an end to it. But until the music revolution sweeps in, we are stuck with it.

So in this post I speak directly to the one percenters, the musicians that make 70% of the money in the music industry..

Guess what, there is a responsibility with making 70% of all the money in the music industry. You have to give 70% of all charity donations from all musicians in the music industry. Let me repeat.

You have to give 70% of all charity donations from all musicians in the music industry.

That means even a million here and there is far from enough. When you make such massive amounts of money, your 10 percent is many millions.

Step up and do your share – your 70% of the entire giving!

Music! Songs! Music!

July 19, 2018

Music Music Music! Songs Songs Songs!

From January 6th 2017 to July 2, 2018 I have written the music to 225 songs!

That is more than 12 a month for 18 months. Brings my total to over 1,950 songs. The 225 songs are from Song #1730 – #1955.

For comparison, the Beatles wrote about 190 songs total in their career. I did more than that in 18 months, and ten times that in total so far. But are they anywhere as good? Play them and see for yourself!

I had planned to record many of these, but I’m not going to go into a recording studio until the music stops flowing!

So instead I’ve done some, NOT studio recordings, but rough minute demos of some of these 225 songs.

Please go to my youtube channel, listen to any that interest you, and give them a thumbs up (literally just lifting a finger.) Search TomHendricksMusea or video floor at the big website.

For 150 studio recordings go to the music ‘floor’ on my website tomhendricks.us or see wikipedia.

In the blink of an eye
someone we love is gone.
In the path of a storm.
all we have tumbles down.

So run with me
the lucky ones,
though I don’t know why.
So run with me
and be my love
for the rest of our lives.

Why are some so quick to go
and leave the rest of us behind?
Why do some live to be old
and others run out of time.

So run with me
and be my love
and all the pleasures prove.
We’ll live our lives
on the run
till our days are gone.
