Well, I got an e-mail saying my band's old (original) bass player wanted back in... So, they told me that I was out and he was in. No problem with my playing, my attitude, nothing...just wanted their old bass player back. So, after playing music (bass) for over 25 years, I am calling it quits. I'm getting rid of my gear and crossing over to the dark side of acoustic guitar. I've done this in the past, where I left a band or it broke up and I'd just trade all my gear in on an acoustic guitar to play by myself (and I'm quite an accomplished guitar player too). So, I'm done playing in bands for good. Until this last band wanted me to play two years ago, I was going to retire anyway. There are no other band situations I really want to be involved in, so I'm hanging it up for good this time. Good luck to you all. Its been fun here.
