Top 8 Reasons Being Disabled in the Music Business Can Be Good

So, you guys all know that I don’t really consider myself handicapped. But after being maimed by a car a couple of years ago, I’ve found that sometimes having some “physical issues” as a musician, sometimes has its advantages. I recently compiled a list of 8 good things about being a disabled musician. Here it goes:

8. You play a benefit show and actually get paid.
7. All the free Reiki
6. The press love you
5. Folks will stick around to watch because they wonder “what’s the gimpy girl going to do?”
4. Playing a show with your leg propped up on your keyboard and medical equipment attached to your body suddenly shoots you to legend status.
3. You never hear an industry person say, “Which girl on crutches were you?”
2. Pity sales
1. You are no longer responsible for loading and unloading the van!

    All the free Reiki you want?! Yuck! What indie Rock Chick worth her salt likes Reiki Martin? He totally ripped that hit song off a bar band in Puerto Rico, at least I heard it there years before he sang it in the States. Phooey on Reiki Martin! I blow my nose in his general direction! (Sound of blowing nose in his direction)
