Here's my musical truth: In what is commonly referred to as the rock & roll music/songwriting/performing arts industry/business, the idea of "playing for yourself" is complete and utter bullshit. Does not exist. Nope, zero, nada, zilch, fuck you punk rock/hardcore astehtics/Henry Rollins. Does not exist. If you pick up an instrument and are going to play places outside of your house and charge people for it/expect to make a living off it, you play for other people, and you have no business whatsoever playing anything than what your fans tell you to do.
I agree with what you just said, except for what I bolded, which I don't agree with at all.
