It's official. My band is now indefinitely on hiatus due to egos. The story about to be told can serve as a valuable lesson on how not to do things in a band. Our guitarist/singer/songwriter took it upon himself to do our shows playing all of his original music. 1 or 2 covers per show. He was so self-absorbed with his originals and thought they were just the greatest songs ever written. He told us how he couldn't put his heart and soul into other people's songs anymore and how we need to keep learning original material. Well, we have now managed to bore the **** out of crowds everywhere in town. I'm sorry, people cannot get into songs they don't know. If you wanna be an origianl band, you got to give the people 1 or 2 at the time. And until you get your following, play the hell out of the covers people wanna hear. The egotistical jerk "refuses" to do covers. So now he is al by himself. The drummer and I are getting a new band together. In the meantime, I'm playing with a side band of local musicians who do shows every month or so. We do NO origianls. Do alot of Black Sabbath, Drivin N Cryin, Tom Petty, Posion, Motely Crue, KISS, and alot of fun stuff the people wanna hear. Good luck little guitar boy.
