Pinback‘s Rob Crow intends to quit music after finishing up his current projects, according to a note he posted on Facebook (via Consequence of Sound). “I have just come to the realization that making music in this climate is financially irresponsible to my family and ultimately humiliating to my psyche,” he wrote. You can read the full note below.
I have just come to the realization that making music in this climate is financially irresponsible to my family and ultimately humiliating to my psyche.
Im going to finish and release the work I’ve already spent my heart and tears on, but even that is likely to ruin me.
My kids are growing and my downstairs studio would probably be put to better use as a bedroom.
I’ll keep a small setup with which I can use for scoring, editing and things when they come up.
Also quitting Facebook and Twitter and using that energy to concentrate on writing in my journal.
Chucking the booze as well will help with that.
I just trying to make a mature decision and be a responsible husband and father.
Before that, he’d tweeted about his intent to “finish up & release all my current records & give up”:
In fact, i think I’m gonna finish up & release all my current records & give up. Thanks you guys! I really appreciated it.
