So we've been gigging steady and things are going as good as they possibly can. Website, new 'NRG' banner, tight chops, compliments from musicians, clubowners, and the general public, hi-visibility gigs, local gigs, etc. I'm loving life. So last weekend we are in the middle of a set and drummer reads that bandmember A wants to start the next song.. so drums start...(false start cuz me and bandmember B aren't ready). So bandmember A starts bitching out drummer like a condescending parent talks to a 3-year old (I wouldn't even talk to my dog like that). Ruins the whole evening. Every bandmember is maximum pissed for the rest of the night. The bandmember A says "That's it, I can't work with that guy anymore". Wait a minute here....The mistake was NOT a big deal, but talking to a bandmember (or anyone) like that is out-of line. And I proceeded to let him know after everyone 'cooled off'. I then proceeded to tell each bandmember how I truthfully felt, and that I am going to continue to be a bassplayer in a working band... Preferrably one without bandmembers who blow up, or those who give band-breaking ultimatums. What is with musicians anyway? Why take a good thing and destroy it? I guess bands don't last forever.... just sucks that such a good band has to "divorce and remarry" over trivial crap. Everyone committed to what's booked (almost every weekend into April) but after that who knows. Is this something that I could have seen / avoided from square one?
