Wasn't bad (without the bass) but both covers were lacking as the bass was very fundamental in the 2 covers they played. Was a good night....for me anyway.

It looks like Raymeous and Runlikegregg's advice was too late!
Like Jive and a few others, I've sat in on plenty of bands that I've quit, but only one that I was fired from. That one was awkward. The others where I quit on my terms were far more aggreable, and more "business" oriented.
The one where I was fired was far more personal, so personally it was very awkward. The weird thing was that since I was out of the band and didn't have the BL breathing down my neck and being hyper critical, I played far better, was more relaxed, and had loads more fun playing. Whenever the music stopped, that's when it got awkward again. As soon as we were done, I packed up as quick as i could and fled. In every other gig I've ever played, I stay for at least one drink with the remaining people and the staff. Not that night...
The other bands were far more agreeable and fun, both before and after I quit the band.
