Real musicians have day jobs

WTF does that mean?? This bumpersticker has been haunting me for years now. I figure it means one of two things:

1. Being a musician IS their day job, so stop telling them not to quit their day jobs, or

2. A real musician is too cool to make money from being a musician, so playing music is what they do at night and during the day they work at Fed Ex/Kinkos.

Please. Somebody help me out.

Hmm, that's a tough one. My first reaction is choice #2.....that a "real" musician plays late at night in clubs, etc and therefore has a day job too. But I can see it the other way too. Sorry, I'm no help. ;)

I think that saying was written by a stoned musician who thought he was making a very deep point.

Music is art. Art in its pure form is not work. True artists do not make a living from their art.

Are you just guessing or do you know that for sure?
