NOPE, A Trained Musician is one who worked for any Jerk (You Know The Type ) 
nightclub owner.

Who trained all of them to work cheap because of the free or discounted 
drinks, and not ask him to put on a cover charge to help pay them better money no 
matter how good they were and could get it

That's why so many of em are Still workin' on the Railroad all the live long 
day, just to put the blues away, or was that Booze away?
