Not sure how tough it would be to grow up being the son of a famous and very wealthy Dad. It had to have more perks than downfalls. I can only imagine that every once in a while you would grow tired of spending money or riding in Limo’s all your life. But, in the natural world with out all the glitter and glamour, Nick had a Dad, “Gene”. Gene had a son. It’s the “changing of the guard” story. The Student becomes the Master.  Here is Nick’s story!  An excerpt:

“I used to take my father’s lessons as an eager student, wide-eyed and receptive. We never used to argue. Today we do, and sometimes things get heated, especially when it comes to politics or social issues. But through it all, I’ve found that he respects me more in the end, even if we never come to terms, than he did when I just passively agreed.”

He recently did an interview with Nick Simmons for Esquire magazine… Gene’s advice for future rock stars is to “not quit your day job”.  I actually think he is right about this one. The Rock music business is in shambles. Comments welcome and expected from fellow musicians :). chuck untitled Here’s an excerpt.

“Don’t quit your day job is a good piece of advice,” Gene began. “When I was coming up, it was not an insurmountable mountain. Once you had a record company on your side, they would fund you, and that also meant when you toured they would give you tour support. There was an entire industry to help the next BEATLES, [THE ROLLING] STONES, Prince, [Jimi] Hendrix, to prop them up and support them every step of the way. There are still record companies, and it does apply to pop, rap, and country to an extent. But for performers who are also songwriters — the creators — for rock music, for soul, for the blues — it’s finally dead.

“Rock is finally dead.
