Hey Superstar DJ… Remember?

Remember when you started DJ’ing because you had the best music collection out of all your friends, and you just loved the music and you didn’t care if you got stuck playing music all night at a party, remember? Remember when you got asked to play in another city for the first time and not only were they going to pay you, they were actually going to pay for a flight to get you there, remember? Remember when you had no idea what a rider was and you were just happy to get a couple free drinks while you were playing all night, remember? Remember when you were grateful to get a free dinner and good company and you were cool with crashing out in the promoters spare room, or anywhere for that matter, remember? Remember flying coach and being thrilled when you got that free upgrade to business class and you couldn’t believe how lucky you were, remember? Remember those days when you showed up somewhere to play and nobody even knew who you were, but it didn’t matter because you were just thankful to have an opportunity to do what you love, remember? 

Remember all that next time you get on your private chartered flight with your 2 page rider of demands. Remember that the drink service you expect on stage before you even play costs more than most people on this planet make all month. Remember that a bed is just a bed and most people don’t even have that to sleep on let alone ever see the inside of that 5 star hotel that you’re demanding. Remember that at the end of the day you’re playing music someone else created, and that they are probably struggling just to keep the lights on and live in obscurity while you reap the benefits of what they created. Remember that everything comes to an end.. remember that.
