The Frustrated Musician


SKU: N/A Categories: ,

This shirt was originally created and sold by one of Beta Merch’s founders, Bradley Southerton in the early 2000s as part of the merchandise line for his band, The Drive. The phrase was derived as a cliche’ muttered by musicians during times of frustration brought on by the trials and tribulations of non-stop writing, rehearsing, scheduling, booking, promoting, driving, unloading, setting up, performing, tearing down, loading, merchandising, networking, recording, mixing, mastering, distributing, sleeping on couches, eating way too much roman, smelling god awful, blah, blah, blah, blah…

The life of a rock star isn’t easy. Feel free to vent, my fellow independent artists! We feel your pain.

Product Specs.

This design is printed on a Gildan 64000 Unisex Softstyle T-Shirt with Tear Away Label. It’s made of a thicker, heavier cotton, but is still soft and has double stitching on the neckline and sleeves for durability.

  • 100% ringspun cotton
  • 4.5 oz (153 g/m2)
  • Pre-shrunk
  • Shoulder-to-shoulder taping
  • Quarter-turned to avoid crease down the center

Our model is wearing a size M. He’s 6.2 feet (190 cm) tall, chest circumference 37.7″ (96 cm), and waist circumference 33.4″ (85 cm). His name is John, and he has an uncanny ability to strike the exact same pose in every picture we take.

John lives in Traverse City, Michigan, enjoys long walks on the beach and spending time with family and friends. He’s a perfect physical specimen, with a few unfortunate drawbacks. John’s upper face, lower legs, and feet are extremely off-putting. Just god awful. That’s why we cropped those parts of him out of our photos.
