    Well I have been in bands with record deals in the past - like with EMI in England. But I wouldn't do it again - they used our advance up in the recording, didn't promote the records and wouldn't let us do anything else for 2 years! It was a nightmare. I've posted a longer account in a previous thread about the same thing.

    I just got a phone call the other night asking me to be apart of a Ramones tribute CD on the same label as Intenal Bleeding (who I think may also appear on this recording), Olympic Recordings. We are doing 'Pet Cemetary,' cant wait to get the ball rolling!! :D

    That Ramones tribute thing sounds very cool. The timing couldnt be better with the death of poor ol' Joey. Who said exploitation? Not me!

    Yeah Yeah, i know, but hey, I ain't complaining. Thats the reason I think its being put together. I would rather it be something else like Rush or Dream Theater, only because punk ain't my thing. But hey, like i said, I'm not complaining, its better than nothing.

    Still not a contract though :( :p

    I have played in a Christan band that was signed by a label. The label promoted the record and did what they were supposed to do. Check them out. All the songs I played on. They have not recorded yet. The new bass player, Ryan, is really good as I am really good.
