I don't know how many of you are in full-time bands out there and have a manager, but I just wanted to take this time to say "hail" to my band's manager. After our road trip through hell this weekend, he deserves this. Everyone else feel free to say "hail" to your manager, or perhaps anyone you want to. Reasons why I hail the manager: after the show the first night some redneck came up to me and said, "you are one of the baddest bass players I ever seen in my life...." The manager follows up with this; "I guess this guy don't know too ****in much about music." Then at the house our drummer was on the phone with his girlfriend and she told him she was going out to the club where we play at alot back home. He got all paranoid. The manager looked at me and the guitarist and smiled, "I wonder where your old ladies are at...." I love this guy!
