Ian Siegal Not Complaining About Music Business Woes

(The Blues) Ian Siegal admits it's a challenging time for professional musicians but he believes he has nothing to complain about. The award-winning bluesman is nearing the end of a UK solo tour, after which he'll hit the road again with his band the Mississippi Mudbloods, followed by a round of dates with his European cronies in the Siegal Electric Band. He also has an American collective to work with when he's on the far side of the Atlantic.

Siegal tells WSCountyTimes: "It has been difficult for a very long time. For a jobbing musician the problem is that your fees have not gone up gigs are still paying what they were paying 10 or 20 years ago.

"It's even worse in the States: top-class professionals are having to get a day job," he continues. "But I'm not complaining. I've never had to have a job. Going out solo is a blessing for me; it's good to have that option." more on this story
