Popa Chubby isn't one of those people. It's a precarious balance indeed, but I've become quite good at it. As a matter of fact, I may be the best besides Keith at living on that ledge.
In an often incomprehensible world like the music business, many artists have been forced, especially in the last decade, to work even harder to maintain their presence in a constantly changing and, at the same time, challenging art form that is music. Then, there is the issue about music genres. Like the Blues, for example, that is not considered, most times, "hip" enough to get airplay time on radios or media in general. As a consequence, Blues artists have to make their marks and try to sell as many records as they can by touring the world incessantly, often self-funding themselves because their record labels wouldn't be able to provide them even with a minimal financial platform to sustain the costs of touring. Somebody that knows all about this is singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Popa Chubby.
