Get your number. Bonus points if she doesn't play any instrument.
Does the Diva have to be female?...lol
I quit that band a few years ago. It still feels good!
Comment of the year!
^ Same boat here.
You forgot "self centered" "greedy" and "not nearly as talented as she thinks she is"...................
Number me! Lol
Is a male Diva a Divo?
I used to. No number needed!
Post some examples of their awful behavior!
Same here .
Had a touring gig once where I was getting paid $50 a day to travel around the east coast with a pretty cool bunch of people and the subject of the OP, who was the BL.
One time, there was a huge blizzard, and we were heading to Seracuse. Where her boyfriend lived. I had the flu, 103 fever, the whole deal. We had 1 gig to play, and the chances were 99.9% that it was going to be snowed out. She insisted we go, regardless of my health. I went, but wasn't happy about it. Took us about 16 hours to get there with the storm. Gig was cancelled.
Upon returning she told me she wasn't going to pay me because I had a bad attitude about the whole thing. I told her she WAS going to pay me. Her boyfriend (who travelled back home with us) tried to get involved, but it was one of the few times in my life I really kinda snapped and he backed off immediately. And then she said, get this.... "OK. You have a choice. I pay you and you never play a gig with me again, or you leave now and we continue gigging".
Guess what I chose.
That being said, I've played with lots of women and most of them were in fact less Diva like than the guys. That one girl might in fact be the only one I ever had any issues with.
Male Diva = Dick
The diva doesn't need to be female nor does the diva need to be a singer. The diva could be a guitar player, too.
Singerbabe has diva tendencies, but everyone, including her, pokes fun at her when she slips into diva territory. Former guitar player, well...
We are not men. We are DEVO.
Ditto. It got real bad when he wanted someone to tune his guitar for him.
People can get weird.
So then what would you call a female version? Just kinda wondering.
I could probably take a few numbers.
We recorded a CD, had to kick, pout and scream to include the band members names on the inside of the sleeve, despite the fact that she doesn't play an instrument and we had to write all our own parts.
Oh yeah, she didn't pay us for the studio time, or give us a cut of the sales. She also made my mom and my girlfriend buy a cd.
sax player is so in love with himself that he put 2 pictures of himself on the latest flyer...one of which is naturally above the rest of the band and the other pic that he is with the band, hes the only one that has sunglasses on
he booked a solo gig one night recently (him playing to karaoke tracks) and hi=e billed it "the bands name featuring his name"
What penalty/bonus for being a heavy handed pianist diva?
I'm glad to be out of that band
Separate names with a comma.
