$30,000 can buy a new heart. Or at least a good replica.

I'd stay true to my music until a time came when someone offered me enough money to think differently

So ... wanting to make a decent living means you don't have a true heart? Maybe some people want to make a living as an artist but don't want to starve.

What if donated that $30,000 to pay for up-and-coming bands to spend time in a studio recording their songs?

Here's a quote from that Gap ad sellout Ryan Adams...

"The other thing was, my mom had cancer the whole fucking time. Breast cancer; I was paying for her treatment. A friend of mine - we can put it like that - was passing away, my mom was sick...it was like, 'Fuck you! How dare you judge me!' And I always think, shouldn't this happen to someone who's at least multi-platinum? My records don't even go balsa wood in some countries."
