Kim Fowley's 10 Commandments



Kim Fowley's 10 Commandments for Rock'n'Roll success:

ONE
Believe in your own dreams.

TWO
When you've learnt your craft, keep your mouth shut.

THREE
Never give a straight answer to anybody - they'll use it to kill you.

FOUR
Upon having record success, keep your head and remember you're human.

FIVE
Remember you're not unique; your music can be duplicated overnight.

SIX
Nothing is permanent, exept death and Texas - so make the money while you can, but don't let it take over.

SEVEN
Don't make records for your friends - make them to suit the andience, because they're the ones who need music.

EIGHT
Don't take yourself too seriously.

NINE
Remember there is more to life than the Speakeasy, dope, sex, long hair and trendy clothes.

TEN
Allow yourself to grow old gracefully, and read "Future Shock" at least once a day to understand why you can't be a phenomenon for ever.

Definitely insightful... thanks to TwilightZone
