From the book of Distortion: A Sunday Sermon

The Parable of The Hundred Songwriters

There were a hundred songwriters, and 99 of these suffered for want of notoriety.

And they changed their music to suit the fashion of the day, and as quickly as these songwriters would be forgotten they were noticed, and there was much slapping of backs, and recognition made them glad in their 99 hearts.

But for the one songwriter, who also suffered for want of notoriety, compromise was impossible, and no one listened.

Should you despair of living in a world where the 99 are listened to, and the one is not?

Verily, I say unto you, that next to this hundred is another hundred, and another and another.  

And a set will come from which the voice of the one is heard, and that voice is thunder which drowns out the slapping of backs, and this event is lightning which sends the 99 back to their shadows of cowardice.

What does it profit a man to gain the world if he has to play in a pop band?

This is the word of LVD.

Distortion Forever!
