Despite the fact that you have a successful music career, do you ever have people tell you that you're "not a real musician" for some reason? (it happens to me with sewing. How do you deal with it?)
Not terribly often. Drama of the Switchblade Kittens says in the Wizard Rockumentary that what makes her band different from ours is that her band is a "real band", but that's the only example that comes to mind.
