I need advice. I'm in a band right now that is just in the midst of recording and personnel change. We haven't played in a couple months, and in that time the drummer and keyboard player have joined another band. They say their hearts are still in our band, but they're actions haven't exactly shown that. In the mean time, I've now been offered a gig as the bass player of a very hard working cover band. They are booked SOLID every single weekend from now until NEXT christmas. This includes casino gigs, hosting open jams, and the odd corporate function. Lots of money is involved, however no time to gig with my original band, thus essentially breaking up the band. My true dream is to be the front man of an original band that plays all my own songs in front of 20,000 people a night. As unrealistic as this may seem, I refuse to rule out the possibility. However, the cover band would finally get me to play music for a living, which is a much more realistic goal. One side may say that if I choose to go with the cover band, that could seal the deal on my fate. However, others might say to do the cover band for now, and if something else comes up, I could always quit. WHAT DO I DO???!!!???
