Long story short, I started playing in a band with some old buddies. We played a three gigs, I brought my rig to two of the three. The last gig was in a place with a backline, they had an 8X10 and all I needed was a bass and head which I brought. Just recently things feel apart and I was told I wasn't good to be in a band anymore and one of the reasons stated was not bringing gear to gigs. Now I live on the fourth floor of a four story walk up and if I bring gear I have to drive, so of course the chance I had to NOT carry my rig I was taking it. Have any of you experienced this?
