He just came back from London where he spent a little time working on music with a collaborator/composer. He took his whole band in anticipation of something wonderful. (cough uggh)
Well as the story goes, the composer he was working with wasn't really a good fit. This guy and the composer sat down and started to write music together. It quickly went south from there.
The composer from UK kept trying to rewrite other original material, trying to inject everything from a "dance beat" to pure "electronicia".
A lot of material was written, but it's agreed upon that it's confused and going to have to rewritten completely. (just a few good hooks and corresponding ideas on how to use them)
The original guy was pretty upset about the whole thing. They played 1x while they were there and got a warm reception, but that's the high point of it. We found out later that a disgruntled band member went behind their backs and pitched his own music to the composer.
The best part of this is that the composer didn't like the material the other chap supplied BEHIND THE BACKS of the others.
The 1st fellow didn't like the experience. He came way saying he doesn't want to work with the composer as he isn't thinking along the lines of the genre he is interested in.
Suddenly the whole band is in disarray, everyone has conflicting ideas and it looks as if they will disband.
A woman we all know had a dream about a sinking ship just prior to leaving the country initially. Omen?
Ok, shoot from the hip. Let's hear it. Questions? Thoughts? Analysis? Prognosis? Diagnosis? Treatment? Cure? Sterilization?
Gimme what you got, inquiring minds want to know what you think...
