    http://louisville.craigslist.org/muc/3175353320.html "We are a local rock band known as ALADDIN'S CASTLE, that has played at many places, but have gotten sickened by the sounds coming from the bass section. Our grandpa of a bass player cannot seem to keep up with the youthful music we strive to perform. Please know that we have no problem with playing with a man over the age of 60, it's just his bass licks are as average as a beginners and we need someone with skills that master those of an experienced and artistically creative musician rather than autistic.
    The type of musician we are looking for should meet these requirements: Have equipment that is not on pawn from a local loan shark. Be able to drink more than 2 beers before having to run to bathroom. Don't try to force your kids on the band(no matter how cute they are). Have tatoos that have some sort of significant meaning of this era and not of pre-WWI or whatever your prison cellmate could draw. Learn the songs we're gonna play so you don't mess up every 8 seconds. Don't stand like a corpse when playing live. Most importantly, unlike our current bassist, please, know how to play the bass."

    There are a few more posts where the bassist responds. Too funny!
