I know several people that don't understand why music is so important to some people, and I hope those people see this and realize how much pain they can cause someone that is only pursuing a dream. Luckily for me I have a family that supports what I do musically and actually enjoys any effort I've ever put into it. Music has been my life since the beginning of High School when i was in Marching Band and it only stemmed from there to flourish into me being a bassist and then a vocalist performing with a few different bands over the past few years. It has become a therapy of sorts for me.... I hope this woman is embarassed for what she said to her son. She isn't a good parent or a good person for that matter....if you think otherwise - you're entitled to that opinion but I feel just as sorry for your close minded mentality as I do hers. Take Heed.
