Wasn't sure if this goes here or in humor, but anyway... I'm going to assume most of us have "failed" at least one audition in our playing careers. Interested to hear from TBers who didn't get the gig, were told it was because of reason A and then through whatever means found out it was ACTUALLY because of reason B. For example they tell you you weren't locking well with the drummer but then you later find out it was actually cause you didn't have a cool enough looking bass, or they don't like lefties, or whatever. I'm sure there are some much better stories than the example out there and hopefully none too painful that you haven't gotten over and can laugh at now.
