Jon Anderson – HuffPost 5.4.12

Mike Ragogna: Do you have any advice for new artists?

Jon Anderson: Just keep practicing. You have to have faith in what you do. Don’t try to become a pop star or a rock star, become a great musician first and foremost. Everything else will evolve.

MR: Right, everything else will evolve. That’s nature’s play with a growing artist?

JA: Yeah, for sure. I work with a lot of young musicians. I always tell them the first thing is to believe in yourself. Practice and study what you’re doing and don’t be pushed to one side thinking money is everything. You don’t make music for money; you make money for the joy of making music.
