So my old singer called me tonight and asked me if I wanted to start jamming with our old band again. I told him that the negatives still outweigh the positives for me to re-join the band. I let one of our guitarists borrow my guitar, that he said he'd buy, he never did buy it and he still hasn't given it back to me. Yeah it wasn't that expensive, but still he never gave it back. Every time we were supposed to meet up for him to give it back he never showed; nor did he ever return my phone calls. On top of that, that same guitarist wouldn't give me my cut of the money we'd made from the shows we'd played, he said i had to get it cleared with everybody else first. He kept my cut and that's ultimately why I left. He also told me to ditch my girlfriend for the band since the band was there for me before she was. And just like I told our singer tonight she's done more for this band in the short time we were together while I was in the band than he ever did; she gave us professional quality pictures for free. Not to mention his rock star ego kills everything for us. We were recording with a guy for $15 an hour, got the mixing and mastering for free. But because of his rock star ego he got us thrown out of that studio. Nobody wants to do shows with us because of his ego, nobody wants to book us because of his ego and when they do book us it's for battle of the bands or these pre-sale ticket shows where we're the oldest band (21-29 years of age) and all the other bands are junior high and high school kids. He says yes to every show without telling anybody that we have a show until the night before. Now, all of a sudden, out of the blue comes this big named producer wanting to produce us "for free or for whatever little money we can come up with." And a label is supposedly interested in us. My big problem is, the producer is a business man, he's out to make money just like everybody else; why would he produce us (a local, unknown and unproven band) for free? This label had an "interest" in us once before and I personally called them to find out some details and they said "What are you talking about?" I hope I made the right decision in staying away from that band. What would you have done?
