His family supported him when you decided to be a musician?
I got alot of support from my family when I wanted to learn music. I got pianolessons from age ten and later I got an electric guitar (age 13) when I wanted to play rock music. My parents also drove me to rehersals and was helpful in many ways until I manged those things on my own. But they also wanted me to get a "proper" education and always thought of my music more as a hobby then a career.
