So You Want to Be a Rock Star?


There probably isn't a person out there who hasn't dreamed of being a pop star or lead guitarist at one time or another. But those jobs aren't exactly dime a dozen (at least not paying ones).

Sure, anyone can strap on a guitar, put out a hat for tips in the park, and call herself a musician. You can even make your own CD and hawk it on MySpace. But American Idol aside, achieving the status of legend, or even mere fleeting fame, isn't easy.
