After playing music professionally for over 20 years i had something happen to me that NEVER happened before... I got fired from a band I was in by snail mail. Yes, instead of speaking to me face to face, a phone call or sending me a rude text, they sent me a an old-fashioned letter. Signed by the other 3 members (we've known each other for about 15 years) saying they were moving on without me. I'm having some issue with this as we began recording an album last october, i did my parts quickly and moved on. Right around November these guys pretty much started ignoring me all the way up to the 2nd week of January saying that "the holidays were busy, we'll get together soon". :scowl: Obviously that wasn't the case. So basically the letter also said they would be releasing the album with my parts (and songs i wrote) but that i would be given "credit" on the album. Am i mistaken or do they need my written permission to use my parts? I also came up with the band name, started the Facebook page (which i was taken off of as an admin by one of them), and i'm not sure how to proceed. Should i chalk it up as a loss and walk away? Would any of you pursue trying to get written permission to use your material? Just curious, as like i said, this has never happened before. It's kind of funny and kind of sad at the same time that they couldn't speak to me face to face as 39-40 year old adults would.
