Life as a Journeyman Entertainer

Most people believe that showbiz and entertainment are about the stars and buzzworthy people they see on Showbiz Tonight or Entertainment Tonight or the cover of People Magazine... but the truth is... MOST professional entertainers go through their lives making a good living and never being recognized by the "star maker/star breaker machine". I call these folks Journeymen. I'm one of them. We all make good livings. Live comfortably. We have cars... a mortgage... a lot of other people... but our job involves entertaining people and making them forget their troubles for a little while. Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to share a dressing room with some special journeymen and journeywomen... and the Big Star World will probably never know about any of us. We do our thing and hope we left our mark and a couple of happy smiles on peoples faces when we're done. Besides... we all wear underwear when we get out of our limos. :) Peace.
