After putting up with a lot of crap for 2 years - I got pushed over the edge yesterday. The leader of my cover band expects us all to revolve our lives entirely around his decisions. Last night, the new drummer we're working in couldn't make rehearsal, and I was told we're going to have to double up next week. I can't, and he wanted me to cancel a Nerve rehearsal, because of course the cover band is so much more important. I told him I wouldn't do it and he started threatening that he would replace me. I told him he was pissing me off, that we should talk later, but he persisted. "Joe, if you don't want to do this, I'll replace you right now" were I think his last words. I needed the money I was taking in with this band desperately, but I'm having faith that better things lie ahead. I want to move forward and I'm sure, as unsure as I feel right now, that this was the right thing to do. These guys are from a different planet than me and I never felt quite right being a part of them. They drink, fight, act like the Brooklyn guys I spent my entire life working not to be. This feels remarkably similar to breaking up with a woman. Anyone know any good bass playing jobs?????? I can play. Really I can. Ask Nino.
