So, What Do You Really Do For A Living?

by Cory Morgenstern

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
“So, What Do You Really Do For A Living?” is a book of hysterically funny, emotionally powerful and true stories about a child of the 60’s’ passion and commitment to being a full-time musician against everyone’s advice (especially his parents!!) and against all odds.
A voyeuristic look at the life of a full time musician, for anyone who ever wondered what it might have been like to follow their dream of becoming a musician and what they might have missed or not missed. These are touching stories of one man's dream and the pursuits and challenges that are still going on to this day. These are stories about teaching the blues to a 100 year old blind nun, rock and roll bands and gigs he's been doing since the 60’s, writing and recording original songs, as well as playing for musical royalty. Cory Morgenstern was born in Queens, New York and grew up on Oceanside, Long Island in a middle class Jewish family. His parents had hoped he would become a doctor or a lawyer, but much to their chagrin, Cory was always mesmerized by music. They tried to force him through a pre-med program in college, but all he wanted to do was play music.
