To Major-Label Hell and Back

Handsome Devil are much happier now

"If you're booking a show yourself, try to get an agreement to get paid ahead of time. Don't sell yourself short. At least get covered for gas money.

"And own your own domain name."

Walker could probably write a book. But he'd rather play music.

"The music industry is a fun one, but it's a curse to love music and to want to be in the music business, because you could limit yourself for fear of becoming too committed to other things. To commit to a career and work really hard toward being a company man somewhere, that isn't going to happen for you if you're trying to go on tour. You'll never be part of that system. I'll always have the dream, though, because music is just always exciting."

Handsome Devil perform with Naked Movie Star, Chaser and Sidekick at Fitzgerald's, 19171 Magnolia St., Huntington Beach, (714) 968-4523. Sat., 9:30 p.m. Call for cover. 21+.
