Steph:  I’ve been thinking a lot about, ya know, what makes rock stars rock stars. What would you tell someone who wanted to become a rock star? How would they do that?

Sara:  Well, first of all you’d probably need to be able to either play an instrument or sing. Don’t you think?

Steph:  Yeah. That’s a really good idea. I mean, there are some things that help you. I mean, but a little bit at least.

Sara:  Yeah. I think too you have to get a really good maybe like public relations person or a manager who could get you into some different venues.

Steph:  Oh, that’s a great idea. Yeah. Definitely, public relations.

Sara:  Yeah.

Steph:  Anything else?

Sara:  Maybe you could, you could cut like an initial CD with just a single on it and shop it around to the radio stations.

Steph:  Oh. That’s a great idea.

Sara:  Yeah.

Steph:  Any other ideas?

Sara:  Um, maybe you could shop it around to, like, KBOO in Portland, which is the non-profit, so they might be more willing to play it.

Steph:  That’s a good idea.

Sara:  And you could probably also offer your services to a bar. Like say they don’t have to pay you just as long as you can play like on a Friday night, like a really popular bar or something.

Steph:  Totally! You’re hired! You can be our PR manager.

Sara:  OK. I’m all over it.

It all sounds so easy doesn’t it? Just get a few gigs and get played on the radio and – poof – you’re a rock star.
I think that after the new year arrives, my band will have to cut that initial CD that Sara suggested and see what happens.
Thanks for the advice Sara!
Have a great weekend! Stay out of trouble, OK?
