We had a benefit gig at a church on the calendar for over a month. When I say church I mean a movie theater in the mall converted into a church. It's a progressive church whose mission is to reach young people. I show up and am told the lead guitarist isn't coming. Just some history, many times he shows up minutes before we go on stage and sometimes simply decides not to appear when we have acoustic shows. I am told he found out the previous night it was at a "church" and he balked. Everyone else knew it was at a church... anyway. I text him that I'm disappointed he didn't show. He then goes off the rails about how he has morals and how we aren't a Christian band and shouldn't be playing at a church. Something about testing God??? We're a secular rock band, but no devil worship or questionable material. My kids come see us whenever we play kid-friendly venues if that gives you any idea. This comes from a guy who lives with his girlfriend, has a baby with her out of wedlock, goes to the casinos and gambles every time we play on the coast, drinks like a fish, and cusses like a sailor. He is po'ed because he thinks I was questioning his faith and belief in God. When he said that I was totally floored. The way he indulges himself I'm afraid playing rock music in a church is probably the least of his worries with God. Is this crazy or what? I'm not particularly religious and see nothing wrong with playing in their church. We were invited to play so they didn't see anything wrong with it either. What an unbelievable hypocrite. Completely self-indulgent, while professing a belief and fear of the King James version of God. In my mind you can't have it both ways if you're a true believer. Anyway, I think the band is now lead guitar-less. He is so PO'ed he doesn't even want to be around me. Unbelievable. Just thought I'd share.
