Ever notice that in almost every band you're in, there is nearly the same group dynamic in each? Here are the archetypes: THE ANAL RETENTIVE WORRIER...this is the details person, who brings 3 times as much equipment than is needed to a show, is high strung and drives everyone batty. But when people forget things, everyone is glad this guy is around because he's got backup everything...this is the one guy everyone would like to see drink a beer or two BEFORE the show. THE DUMBA$$...this guy is contantly late, and is constant ticking everyone off, but completely unintentionally...this guy is in no way malicious, just a little bit socially inept. He will unknowingly hit on the bouncer's girlfriend. He doesn't prepare well for gigs, forgets stuff (like guitar stands), but is usually having the most fun. Go figure. THE STOIC...nothing phases him. Not only does band drama not bother him, he seems to be even unaware of it. He just quietly goes about his band business, shows up and plays. When his opinion is sought on something, its like pulling teeth. THE BROODER...this guy is the ticking time bomb. He is moody, and when he doesn't like something he won't communicate it until he's ready to blow. He sulks when not listened to. THE DRAMA QUEEN...this guy writes emails to everyone that are at least 5,000 words. Not a thought goes unspoken, even when nobody wants to hear it. This guy is the ham on stage. This guy usually quits the same band 3 times. THE PRIMA DONNA...this guy thinks he's the next Buddy Rich or Eddie Van Halen, and doesn't let you forget it. He reminds you of all the big acts he's already played with (although some of his stories are dubious). He works very hard to get the song JUST RIGHT but often forgets that its all about entertainment and not necessarily perfection. He usually gets along with the ANAL RETENTIVE WORRIERS. So...who are you? I'm the WORRIER guy.
