Real Musicians

From the Academy Award winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, a quote from Sting:

Real musicians – there’s a spiritual component to what they do. It’s got nothing to do with worldly success. The music is much more an inner journey. Any other success is just cream on the cake.

There’s this idea that you can go on American Idol and suddenly become a star, but you may bypass the spiritual work that you have to do to get there. And if you bypass that then your success will be wafer thin.
