When a Musician Asks: “How are my wife and I going to retire?”
Every musician who’s ever dreamed of making it in the music business needs to read the following paragraphs. I excerpted them from a post on our public forum.
When you’ve finished, I’m going to turn you on to something that could literally change the outcome of your life. That might sound like something out of a lame infomercial, but I promise you that it’s not.
I’ve been begging musicians to pay attention to what you’re about to learn for years! The paragraphs below demonstrate a problem that’s all too common among musicians. The solution that follows is something I believe many musicians have never even thought of doing!
Keep reading to see if any of this sounds familiar…
Too Old to Rock?
[This is quoted, word-for-word]:
I’ve been a performing musician since I was 14. I made my living for 30 years playing guitar, keyboards, sax, and singing at every gig you can imagine.
I did the “original” thang, and it was quite rewarding. I moved to L.A., and my band almost got signed to Atlantic Records. We had a great live show, and A&R people came out of the woodwork to see us! But in the end, it boiled down to one thing: Marketing. The A&R weasels didn’t know how to market us.
A typical conversation —
A&R: “We love your music, your show, your musicianship, but we don’t know how to market you.”
Me: “Why is that?”
A&R: “Because you’re too original.”
Me: “Isn’t that good?”
So, 20 years later, I’m playing guitar and singing better than I did back then. But reality has set in; I’m well aware that I’m too old to be “signed” as an original act, or even as a singer/songwriter. That’s for younger people. It’s always been like that…
And age also brings up another reality: How the hell are my wife and I going to retire financially? I grew up in the era where “everything’s gonna work out — follow your bliss!” And I did. But it DIDN’T work out the way I thought it would. I put my whole life into my art, and what do I have to show for it? A few bucks in a savings account. Bills. Mortgage payment. You know the drill of being an “adult.”
There’s a Way to Solve This Problem!

It’s not a get rich quick thing. It’s going to take some work. But it is something many musicians can do with a simple home studio.
Learn how a musician with very little recording gear went from no income to $100,000 in five years, and then exceeded that!
Current TAXI members, former members, and people who haven’t joined TAXI yet are all going to want to see this. It’s not a slick video production, but it might be the most life-changing information many musicians will ever hear!
