No smilies, no jokes here. I am serious.
If you keep this up, you will never be able to enjoy music in your later years. You won't know what people are saying to you, not even your own kids or grandkids. Your life will be nothing but misery.
You only get one pair of ears, they have to last you for life. NO band is worth going deaf over.
Your guitarists are nothing but worthless dumbasses. They can either growup or find a new bass player. You're better than that.
I did a similar experience many years ago.
2 gits playing 8x12
It was only a take but my SVt+810 was hard to come with the 2 gits.
After the take was over I mentioned the gits are much too noisy, and therefore I was not taken.
The ending of the story was not any problem at all cause I don't like kindergarten.
