WELCOME to Musician’s Life Support. We’re cruising into Fall, with the Holiday season bearing down on us. The Holiday season can be a time of great joy and increased opportunities for working musicians, but it can also be a time when some of us face loneliness, depression and a sense of hopelessness. With that in mind, we want to encourage those of you facing the down side of the Holiday season to reach out to your fellow musicians and talk your way through it all. Community can be a priceless resource when we’re feeling down and alone. If you’re doing fine, be there for someone who’s not. Sharing our ups and downs makes us all better off. Need a friend? Be a friend.
This month we have added some resource links to the Resources page, there are fresh blog entries from Spider and Jimmy, there’s a link below to a guided meditation (thanks to Jimmy) that some of you might find helpful, and more stuff to come. Enjoy, connect and share. We’d love to hear from you all.

David “Spider” Price, the founder of Musician’s Life Support, has played guitar for over 50 years. In that time, he has played everything from frat parties and honky-tonks to major arena concerts. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2006, David’s ability to play has been significantly impacted. Still, he has found a way to record and release a solo CD, and write and publish a novel as well.
