I'm on vacation today from a job I love. A job I'd do for free if I had no need of money evermore.
Sometimes though, I think "wow, now that would have been fun!"
Not many times, cause I really love my job, but almost always when I hear great music like Rosanne Cash.
It's not that I want to be Rosanne Cash (maybe Tina Turner, for just about five minutes!) it's that I'd love to sing with her.
Here's the lineup for one of the songs on her recent album The River and The Thread.
Can you imagine how fun it was to record that song that day?
And another album I love beyond measure is Trio (Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstatd) I'd LOVE to have been a backup singer on this one.
The sound quality on this is dreadful, but if you go listen to it on iTunes, you'll see what I mean.
I don't think I could have tolerated the life of a musician, but oh man, I think of it sometimes.
What do you think of sometimes? If you weren't a writer? or what else you are?
