I agree with Cheaya. Always let folks know where you stand (in a tactful but firm way) if you don't you are only prolonging the inevitable!

Thanks man ,we really appreciate the compliments.

Thanks to all of you in supporting my claim. Its nice to know I'm not alone. I think this guy just saw an easy in,(already had 3 CD's and established a name locally) and just wanted to ride coat tails. Each member MUST do their part, thats why its called a BAND. If one guy is slacking, it effects the W hole group. This jackass knew that, but just didn't care. Oh well, its all behind me now, back to the drawing board......

Not picking on ya... just struck me funny this morning. :lol:

I've wasted countless time and energy on these assholes and I've had it.

The guy I'm dealing with never learns anything(depends on me to show him his parts), never retains anything(forgets what I just showed him), never is in tune, does Not have his own equipment, never took the time to get his SOUND, never contributes unless 1000% beneficial to him, never is without a beer in his hand....

Is there anybody else out there with selfish idiots like this in your band? Please talk to me and let me know I'm not alone in this.

I don't know who posted this rant, but it's priceless! (been there, done that!)

I'm a tone deaf singer, a rhythmless rhythm guitarist, & a tempoless bass player looking for people to talk about music instead of playing it. I like to try to pick up girls from the stage, cuz that's why I got into music in the 1st place, unless, of course, you have a fattie or a double shot or a line for my head, cuz that'll do just as well.
I want to be payed big bucks to show up late & drown out your entire band with my virtuousity as I play out of tune, out of time, & often in the wrong key, while I flip my hairs around & make faces like I'm pouring my guts out on the floor for you. I'll respond to every idea that you put forth by saying "embrace the cheese, man," & then ignore your idea completely.
I'll find the most irritating tone I can find on my instrument, & try to convince you & everyone else that tone doesn't matter as long as it looks good on stage. I use effects on my instrument like a sledge hammer, tweaking the sound until it is completely unrecognizeable as a musical instrument, & then say things like "wow,'s so....COSMIC!" as I go off in an entirely different direction from whatever song you're playing, & do my best to eradicate your vocals with my never ending overdriven solos, slipping seamlessly from key to key throughout every song cuz once you get my hands started, heaven only knows where they'll end up...and isn't that too frikken COOL?
I'll ask every bartender where the action is, cuz they know that stuff, don't they? Surely they can tell ya who sells the best mind-altering substances. Rehearsals? you gotta be kidding, man! Keep the sound FRESH, dude! Every break we take, you can find me out in my car "tuning up my head." No, I don't need to remember the damned one listens to the words anyway, so I can just repeat the 1st verse, if I can remember it. Otherwise an unintelligible mumble will do. Oh, by the amp's in hock. Can I borrow yours? Do you have any strings? I just broke one bending the thing 4 full frets at the strangest spot in your song, & I wanna see if I can do it again. Don't worry. Go ahead & set up. I'll be a little late, like maybe an hour. It's all good, dude. My girlfriend wants to sing a song when we take a break, but only after she's had a few to bolster her confidence. She's really good after a few drinks & I wanna encourage her, besides, I might get laid.
I don't need a tuner, man. I got perfect pitch! Just gimme an E, & I'll take it from there at the loudest setting with the overdrive on, while you try to tune or set up your amp. Hey, is it ok if my other band auditions during the break? We need the bucks, man. Dude, my axe has this funny little buzz on the 9th fret. Can you fix it? I just got this effects pedal with like 3 thousand tones, & I'm gonna try 'em ALL out tonight as I trip over the thing & occasionally unplug it with my drunken foot. Can you feel it? At the end of the night you can find me either in my car getting tuned up, or chatting up some drunk, while you break down the equipment. I'll probably get a DUI tonight on my way home, so I may not be there tomorrow night for that show. any pot?

The last real band I was ever in was in 1976, in Illinois. We were a good band, we had issues among us. We missed our calling so to say. We broke up and I left for California. Dan Fogleburg gathered some local bands to record at a studio he had bought. Head East became fairly famous at that time from their sessions. We were on the list of bands Dan was interested in, I found out some years later. After I joined the Army and ended up back here in Kentucky, I found out. I did a country duet accoustic thing in Texas while in the Army in the late `70s. I was on stage once since in 1983 when a friend called me up to play Johnnie B. Goode at a local function. I travelled around doing construction work and a bro of mine and me used to do the pawn shop circuit. We'd find a shop go in, find a couple of good axes and start jammin'. I sometimes play bass. Accoustic bass is very awesome in it's own right. We are planning an accoustic set right now if we can get it together ?

Everyone has a story. Most of them are sad in their own way. The greatest musician I ever knew could not get along with anyone, not even himself. His talent was wasted with alcohol.

For your sake I hope you're kidding Mike but I get the feeling you're not. Dump her already.

I did some shows with Anison in the past.

Why do you have a bunch of other bands on your profile? Pretty sure this is against BandMix policy. Put up some of your music.
