Well my new country band was going well but there was some hidden internal tension of course they did not tell me about. Our guitar player who is motivated and experienced had it with the singer and quit the band by text today. He will ride out the few gigs we have into next year and then that's it. I knew it might be coming only after a couple weeks after I joined. The guitar player has good reasons for quitting and said he tried to get the singer to change. I'm not upset with him just the situation. This band was really fun and starting to gel but the singer is just not motivated enough for the guitar player, he feels he's lazy at booking gigs and helping with setup and tear down. He is right and I stand with him on it. So the singer in what's left of the old band wants me to stay on and retool the band. The guitar player wants me to come with him and form a better band. Right now I'm on the fence and told both I will work with them till we see what floats. My money is on the guitar player who has ran successfull bands in the past and has full PA gear. Looks like my Musical journey continues and it's getting old. Gosh dang it I just want a solid band to play in ...is it that hard?
