    People watch a “musician” play and have no idea the time and effort put into learning how to play an instrument. Others think Guitar Hero and “Electronica” qualify them as artists. Congrats to you - you deserve those few minutes of fame. BTW Nice guitar. (I loved gigging my Gretsch but stopped taking it to “smoke filled rooms” - no way I could take my eyes off of it. Again congrats.

    Frank, that's a fantastic tribute to your efforts as a player and bandmember. Reading the bio prompted me to go to Youtube to look at the band's performances there. They all look like great fun and very entertaining. Who says we senior citizens can't be rock stars and sex symbols??

    It's the implied & uncompensated endorsement. There are mutual benefits for both. The artist gets interweb exposures to sell music content, while Fender/Gretsch uses that instrument association to sell more guitars. No money exchanges hands per se, not unless the artist gets really big.
