I'm not the only oddball who won't work for the associated restrictions from being paid.
At this point in my life I am retired and don't want to be under a gun of getting money for
A) something I love
B) restrictions and 'do it my way' from a boss
C) I can leave if I want and the place is not out of any money
D) other things that become obvious when you aren't back into the working world - especially one that has it's day start at 10PM and end when you can fall asleep at 6AM and totally ruin your biological clock.
Kinda like getting paid for sex.

I'm currently working on getting plugged in with a couple (singer & guitar player) to play bass for them. No pay. Just for fun. Play a time or two a month. It's the gig I've been looking for. No pressure. Just have fun.
I've got a job, and have no interest in dragging in at 3am only to have to be at work at 8am.
Like I said - I don't work, am enjoying being retired, spend a lot of time visiting my kids and their kids in several states all over the country - so a leash isn't something I want.
I drive and stop to sniff the roses, take a hundred pictures, eat at really dinky diners in tiny little towns and sometimes sit in on a bar band for fun.
I don't even have a cell phone except for 911 calls if I need to make such a call and THAT'S an old analog 'brick-phone' that can call out, but not in.
And NO - my VCR does not blink 12:00
all the time.
