    I had to quit the disco/funk band that I have been playing for last night. Why, you may ask?

    Well, according to the singer's Facebook page, I am a p***k, and I suck, and I am not welcome.

    Seems she wanted to keep the guy they had before.

    Ah well, I'll go away and they can find someone else who isn't a p***k, doesn't suck, and IS welcome.

    Meanwhile, I have had offers from three other bands already.

    Perhaps, I don't suck as badly as she says, eh?

    Nothing but grins over here!

    Sounds like you didn't fall under her spell as-planned.
    I hear that Eagles song "Already Gone" in my head now.
    Pick the right 1 of 3 or all 3 if you like juggling.

    Doesn't sound like you're missing out on much.

    How long have you been playing with the group?

    Why did the other guy quit or was let go?

    Anything build up to this?

  5. You're better off. Be thankful you discovered this and don't have to waste another second with her.

    Poor leadership kills a band faster than anything.

    I was with the group for three years.

    I was out of the group for 3 months this year due to medical reasons.

    The other guy was brought in to take my place while I was out.

    And apparently, he REALLY likes to PARTY!

    When I came back, the weed and whiskey factor dropped out.

    Guess that I just wasn't as much fun to be with.

    Even the BL said that they were on their last legs anyway.

    Trying out for a new group tonight! Onward and upward!

    Gee - a band that is about to die out that prefers drugs and alcohol over a competent and professional musician...

    Joy oh joy.
