GROWING up, I used to wonder how musicians or singers earn a living. The image of a musician or popular singer is often romanticised and mystified beyond rational logic that most assume that because they appear to be glamorous or decked up onstage that their lives offstage must be equally plush.
Of course, Hollywood and the like often churn out so-called biopics or even fictional films depicting a pop starlet or rock star rise and fall from stardom, where humble beginnings often end in excess and despair.
