Aloha, I will be brief. I am in a COVER/originals band that has achieved a modicum of buzz here on Kauai. We have great chemistry. However, our frontman has a few "Rock and Roll Star" (sarcasm) cliche issues. He has a great stage presence and is a good rhythm player. Unfortunately, in the past he was arrested for a DUI and missed a gig. In addition, he once announced that he was moving to California, left, returned (unexpectedly), and wanted to pick up where we left off. We, in his absence, regrouped and began to search for a new singer. Despite some misgivings, we began to play again. I could go on about his escapades. Last night, he didn't show up for a gig. We had to "E Blues progess" through the night with extended solos, audience participation, and other things. He showed up at 11:30; the gig ended at 12:00. We did a 30 minute set with him. A little background. The band is comprised of two twenty-somethings who love to play and get free drinks. A tormented thirty- something (the singer), and two guys in their forties (me and the conga guy - I am 40) I am an English teacher, but I may be able to do music for a living soon because of my endeavors as a producer. I have a developed a reputation for professionalism and preparedness as a player. I am very serious. I think of myself as the merely "Bass Player" in this project. At one point we were going to give it a go via my new label, but some lack endurance for such things. I only say these things to illustrate the fact that I am a little more serious than the others. Back to last night. He said that he was tired from work, went to take a nap, and slept through his alarm (and phone calls). When he arrived, and we knew that he was alive, the other band members were stoked to see him. They said things like, "Oh it happens" and "Ha Ha this guy over slept. Crazy kid!" We played as if we didn't just go through two hours of improv. madness (which kinda went over well!) No one was upset except for me. Am I overreacting? Should I look at this as just "bar band" follies?
