It's been really useful in pointing out to my kids the differences between the romantic notion of being a muso and the realities involved being a professional muso. It was written by Jason Ricci.

I wish him success in dealing with his difficult times. He is a spectacular harmonica player, and there's been a few of those hit some difficult times over the last century!

I believe they found the stolen stuff in his possession. So, yeah, he looks pretty guilty at this point.

Regardless of that, goldbrick, the accusation of being in violation of your probation is likely to result in jail time. Even Jason's closest acquaintances seem to know that he's been up to some illegal acts, if you put any stock in what they have posted on other forums.

i have been clean and sober for a lot of days at a time. this is something i was going to do or i was going to die. i don't fault anyone for their behavior, the last thing i am qualified to do is judge someone else. but my recovery depends on giving the secret away. so any time i see an opportunity i will tell my story in the hope that it will help someone else, and also because it's kept me from going back to a very toxic and deadly (for me) lifestyle.

this is all aside from why i'm on this forum and others like it. i love playing harp and singing, mostly blues with a smattering of jazz, country, swing, rock, etc etc. i know Jason loves what he does as well. i hope he can find a resolution to his conflicts and get on a better path soon. meanwhile, i'm gonna blow some harp!

I agree that theft is a dirty thing. My personal experience is colored by the fact that I have a daughter who went through a similar period in her life, and stole from me, and other people who loved her. I was a cautious enabler for about 10 years, and spent many thousands of dollars on her phone bills and helping her pay rent and buy food. Ultimately she made it through that period, and I don't regret how I handled it, but every case is different.

You're right about another thing: sometimes prison does save a person's life. Alotta guys in prison will tell you that.

I would guess that Jason's got some drug addiction issues, and I can't relate to that. I can't judge it either. I've always drank too much-- not binging, but catching 5-6 beer buzzes 2-3 times/wk-- and smoke pot when I jam, and if I had a hardcore addiction, I don't know if I'd have the constitution to beat it. I try to remember that these are people, and at one time their mama loved 'em, and they've got value. I'll bet Jason's ashamed of some of the stuff he's done.
