BLURB

Fame goes to everyone's head. You can tell yourself the whole way up that you'll “stay true to yourself” but the reality is you start to change without ever even noticing it. So on one hand, you weren't actually lying about staying true to yourself, but on the other you became an entirely different person. You can choose what to make of that (but we both know you don't give a shit because you're famous). Now here is where things get interesting. There will come a point when either you take a step back and choose to be grateful for the people that believed in you from the get-go – back when you were making prints for jazz record sleeves – or you can commit figurative murder-suicide by killing off the old you entirely, including those Johns and Janes who's faces you don't don't quite remember but you know said things like “I'll stay with you to the end.” Once again, you can choose, but know this: every time you hear Thelonious Monk or Count Basie will bring up memories of those early years.
