Musicians Kicked Out Of Bands Right After Making It Big

There has to be something painful about being a musician who gets kicked out of a band just before it hits the big time.

Your friends got rid of you, they're all the better for it, and now you're stuck working in a dentist's office in Utah. All in all, it's not hugely fun.

But you persevere. You practice day in and day out, playing the tiny gigs, recording what you can when you can, and you think that maybe, just maybe, this might all be going somewhere.

    Creative people can seem kind of magically talented. Since fans only see the end product of their work, it can appear that they just put pen to paper, or brush to canvas, or pick up a guitar and within minutes they've created the thing that made them famous.
