folks got into sequencers because they were experimental parts of a synthesizer. Then folks that could not play anything grabbed their opportunity. When you can't play anything and rely on sequencers it shows. everyone knows. sequencers are fun in the mix, but are not main instruments. at this point, arps are probably more musical, and that sucks.

I wanted to be famous. I never got famous.

Now I have a beautiful wife and two beautiful daughters. I wouldn't change a thing.

I remember, schlepping to my minimum wage job as a shipper, being stopped by a local CBC reporter who asked me: what would be your dream job?
Answer: to be idly rich.
And do what?
Play my gee-tar!
Then off to work. I never saw the clip, but a bunch of friends did. I was 21, this was about 4 months post homelessness.
I wanted the whole 'Life's Been Good To Me So Far' lifestyle. I wanted girls coming in through the bathroom window, damnit! Another dream fallen by the wayside at 61. :cry:

I had nary a clue what a sequencer was in 1981.

Being famous seems like an enormous pain in the ass.

I want to be rich enough for leisure, but not luxury and excess. I guess I'll settle for being able to maybe retire someday without having to eat ramen and cat food.

attainment of fame is easy, just depends if you want to be remembered for something amazing or truly horrific.

My first sequencer was a Roland PR-100 released back in the late 80s. I used it to sequence synth parts for my band. I was a music major at the time, but never planned to be famous outside the Michigan college club scene. I later decided that music was a stupid decision, since I really always wanted to be a scientist, so I re-enrolled in college years later and, flash forward 30-some years,... I'm still not famous for anything. :shrug:

Just like BROS, I suffered for my art with the jogging in the park. Sequencers didn't really come into it. Still I wonder sometimes. When will I, will I be famous?
Hi-de-Hi!

i think we've found someone, who wanted fame, but failed, and is now jealous of anyone that did make it.
especially if they made it, recently.
