Gerry in The Pacemakers.
As an English musician and popular tv personality, Gerry Marsden is well known as the leader of British band Gerry & the Pacemakers. Born in 1942, in Liverpool which is the same place as where The Beatles were formed! His career consists of a string of hit singles, and even a solo career and some time spent acting on tv. One of his famous his is ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ which was even adopted by football clubs as their anthems.
Being in a band may seem glamorous, exciting and rebellious, but it isn’t easy. It requires a lot of commitment and time, both to your goal as a band and to your bandmates. And sometimes it might get a little too much, as a lot of band memebers tend to spend 24/7 together, and that’s because it’s just easier that way, for the Manager and for the group as they go around promoting themselves and their songs. Members have to support each other through tough times, but also celebrate the good times.
As a solo artist you alone will get all the glory and recognition, but at the same time when the going gets tough, you’ll probably have to deal with it alone. But when things are going well, you know that all your hard work is paying off.
Different people want different things, for example some might want to be in a band for the commadarie of having bandmates, whilst others want the spotlight for themselves and so work alone.
If it all becomes too much for you, all the hectic travelling, chaotic organising and you’re working yourself to the bone, yet you can’t just slip back into being an Ordinary Joe, then a low-profile career on tv might be the anser. This way you can still get some of the fame and fortune as an artist, but the work ethic is different. Who knows? Maybe you’ll want to be singing until you’re old and grey, or a career change in tv might be just what you need.
I grew up exposed to different types of music. Both of my parents are highly musical. Music has been my source of inspiration until now. I once thought that I will be a musician by profession because at an early age my parents volunteered to join me in musical plays and music festivals. I enjoyed it though but my real passion is into marketing.
Since I like music, I incorporated it into one of my businesses. I have a website designed by Web Design Hong Kong which sells podcasts from great musicians. It is selling well. My page being on the top page helped a lot in my sales and the SEO expert from Nottingham SEO company is the one responsible for all the SEO works. Thanks for always doing a great job.
But even I pursued a different career, my parents are proud of my accomplishments. I invited them to have dinner at my newly bought. I diligently sourced quick sale property from various sites since I was really into good deals. I browsed quick sale, quick house sale to find my new house. They offer various houses that will suit your needs. I always want to be prepared in almost anything thus I checked dream house mortgage and low rate loan Preston and learned more about housing loans before applying for it. I saw the pride in their eyes the moment they set foot on my new house. I am happy that they like my new house. My mom even complemented the Franke Atlantis sink that I bought from Shaws of Darwen sinks, it really commands attention in your kitchen.
Speaking of attention, my dad’s attention was glued on my Breitling Super Ocean Heritage 42 Black Bezel watch. I told him that I will give a better one within the week. He was giddy. Hahaha… They didn’t know that I have a better gift for both of them, I will buy new BMW 735iL for them next month. After dinner, I offered them colon cleanse to lose weight drink. They were surprised that I eventually turned to become a health conscious because back then my favorites drinks were soft drinks. Well, I think it’s just normal for young ones to get into sweet drinks and other sweet foods but it mellowed down as we age because we have to take care of ourselves.
They enjoyed the dinner. I ordered mouthful foodies for them. We had some conversations about one another’s lives and it’s nice to know that we are all happy people. My dad’s business is still doing well. I acquired his business acumen while I acquired my being meticulous at home from my mom. They asked about my business since it’s somewhat not within their generation, I took some time explaining it to them. Since both of them are smart I did not have a hard time explaining. They were both mesmerized by the power of technology.
I asked them to stay for the weekend and for a week if possible. They agreed with the former because they are also busy people.
I alarmed my clock because I have to wake up early the following morning because the toys that I ordered from baby deals online will be delivered the following day. I will give them to the children of my employees as a souvenir for our activity.
