Imagine you are in a rock group.  You are 16 years old and know that all you want to do is make music.  Now imagine that your group wins a battle of the band and now has a regular gig at a nightclub.  Four nights a week and pretty decent money.  But also imagine that your grades at school are really going downhill because of your night job.  Now you have to choose.  Your parents want you to quit the band and spend more time on your school work.  Your band mates want you to quit school and spend more time making music.  What would you do?
