This is just a...”holy hell I can’t believe these people are adults” kind of a a thread. I’ll be brief... I’ve been playing in this band since last fall. I’ve noticed some small bouts of drama here and there from a few members. Little things really but things I noticed none the less. Well recently the drummer dropped out so we got together tonight to try out a new drummer. Two hours later, new drummer leaves and one of the two guitar players asked us all to hang back so we could all discuss the new drummer. Lead guitar: “ok so I would like to go around the room and just get everyone’s thoughts about the drummer...Hey singer, how about you start?” Singer: “ok well I thought”...(Blah blah blah) Lead guitar: “Ok great points...hey keyboard player do you wanna go next? What did you think of the drummer?” Keyboard player: “well I thought”...(blah blah blah) As he’s talking, rhythm Guitar player interrupts: “well I agree with keyboard player and further”...(blah blah blah) At this point, lead guitar interjects: “hey man hold on ok? I wanted to go one at a time so we all have a chance to get our thoughts out there.” Rhythm guitar player screaming now: “IS THIS A CONVERSATION?!?! CAN I NOT INTERJECT MY THOUGHTS?!?!?! DON’T YOU EVER (expletive expletive) INTERRUPT ME AGAIN!!!!” (BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!!!) As he’s literally screaming, I grabbed my bass and headed for the door. As I got to the door I said “too much drama for me. Go ahead and look for a new bass player.” That’s all...I’m far too old for this nonsense. If a room filled with adults (I’m the young one...these guys are 50’s and 60’s) can’t have a discussion without literally screaming, it ain’t the spot for me. As I said, this isn’t the first example of drama. It’s just the final and far most explosive. Sometimes I remember why I walked away from bands when I was a young guy. Those of you who have adults to work with...be grateful. If you know where a bass player can find adults to work with, I would love some insider info.
