So, I think I've run into my very first true douchebag musician... with a bit of a catch. The guy plays guitar and drums and he's REALLY FREAKIN' GOOD but he hasn't a shred of humility and his cock-o-meter is completely off the charts. I've been at an event for the past few days where there are quite a few hours in the day for an open jam. Every time someone wanted to play drums he would deem them unfit for the position and hop on the second drum set to "do it better" and after a few minutes of laying down something solid (and running over whatever else the other person was doing; There were two sets) he'd proceed to do fills and mess with the time until everything sounded like a mess. Keep in mind, this isn't some pro shed session, just a bunch (50+ over the course of a day) of folks who just want to jam. It was just bleh. But by the same token once he got together with a few other musicians of his caliber he was cool... until our guy on guitar played Amaj7 instead of Amin7b5 then he decided to channel a bit of James Brown or Buddy Rich (ok, not that bad). I've got no issue with trying to correct a mistake that someone made but he goes about it with all the finesse of a coke junkie doing ballet. In the right environment, everything is AWESOME but if the slightest thing is off he'll suck ALL the joy and fun out of creating music. He's a black hole and shining star all at once . The funny thing is that I have more in common with him musically, than possibly anyone I've ever known. With any luck, I won't see him again after tomorrow.
