    PPS. I think I've said it before - but I think the way to have a successful music career as a performer and walk out of it alive, is to keep it focused on entertaining. Ie, it's about your job, not you.

    So you don't sell out your soul, stay true to yourself, but realise it isn't about you, it's about producing a product (or performance) for others to enjoy. That's what they pay you for. To pull that back on to you, can put an awful lot of pressure on you. Because then it becomes you're a failure or a success as opposed to the thing you're producing being a failure or success.

    That and don't do anything unethical (ie that will obviously, negativly affect others - like dirt or dishonesty, (or presenting stuff as truth that isn't) because that will always come back on you.

    Tom Brookes, Abraham L (INT. music). I have never seen better instrumentalists like them. The album, God is Able, by Ron Kenoly, is probably the best by the artist. Wow!

    RED is my favorite band. They're a Christian metal/rock band who's songs are usually about moral issues, or just everyday life things. They're definitely Christian songs, but done in such a way that they aren't exclusively Christian. Here's their wikipedia page: Red (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia They've got some really good stuff. My favorite songs by them are "Faceless", a song about someone who cannot discover who he is or what his purpose in life is, and is drifting away from God(At least that's how I interpret it), and "Not Alone", which is a song about now matter how bad or good things get, God is with you, and will always be with you.

    My second favorite would be the Newsboys, who unlike RED, make songs about praising God rather than songs about personal/moral dilemmas. Wiki page: Newsboys - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia My favorites of theirs are "Million Pieces", "He Reigns", and "Something Beautiful".

    Third favorite would probably be Evanescence or maybe Queen, but neither of them are Christian bands, so I won't go in to that at the moment.

    Fourth favorite might be Anberlin. They aren't a Christian band I don't think, but the band members are Christians themselves. They just don't make Christian exclusive music. Wiki page: Anberlin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    My favorite Anberlin song is "Pray Tell".

    Re: Your Favorites - Online Radio Stations

    Anyone have favorite online christian radio sites? I like Skincast Music because they do a podcast and live radio 24/7. I like Christian Rock mostly, like RED and Skillet
