Pure venting here folks. I've been playing with the Mud Prophets for about five years, give or take a year. In that time, we have completely failed to get anywhere, locally, personally, anything. I think the problem is a combination of my personality and the personality of the guitarist singer. Together, we have the ability to over-plan, out-think ourselves, and beat ourselves into boredom with idea after idea that never get acted upon. There have been times I've thought of quitting, and one time when I actually did quit. In every case, he has talked me into giving it another try. What am I thinking, you ask? Good question! I feel like I'm in a crappy soap opera or something. We are always, "poised" or "on the brink" of getting some "major recognition" or some such nonsense. Maybe one of these times it could be true, but with a 0 average, I doubt it. I think I need to move on and stay out this time. OK rant over.
