Hard to say if this truly belongs in band management, but I figure it could apply to general life and put it in OT. (Mods may do whatever they wish.) A few may have heard my last band drama story that I fell behind on practice due to a lot of things hitting the fan. The band told me I had to get it together or I was out. I got it together, but I was already done. I'm pretty sure they were auditioning my replacement when I was away for the weekend of my grandpa's funeral, no joke. Anyway, to the subject matter. I got tricked into believing that the band was simply going to become a side project for them and got tricked into giving them the band name. In my anger, I called him a liar, but he kept saying, "well, technically I said...." He was right. For the last couple of months, he simply told small pieces of the story or was so vague that I made the mistake of making assumptions. He simply never said the full story or kept silent about all of those details. I would assume we've all had managers like that at work, too. I know I have. What sayeth the wise talkbassers? I tend to be the very honest type. Sure, I might talk to police to things I may have done in undergrad. Otherwise, I'm an open book and you can count on me to be truthful. I expect the same out of my friends or simply don't consider them a friend. I didn't think to question the guys in my band because I considered them friends and now know otherwise.
