This has been around the block a few times, but its always great to talk about absurdity of venues looking to use musicians. A craigslist ad on a variation of this Dave Goldberg open letter has circulated around facebook for a while, but it is not nearly as eloquent as this version in whole.
One of our founding fathers (no, not Keith Richards, but he might have been there), I believe it was Ben Franklin, said, “We must hang together, or surely we’ll hang separately.”
Musicians, hang tough on your rate.
On a lighter note, Ben Franklin also said, “Beer is proof that there is a God, and he wants us to be happy.”
