Just by posting a Flight of Icarus Bass cover a few positive things happened over the course of two days. I posted it a Facebook local musicians page then on youtube after I got the volume up. Two bass players wanted to friend me and a few saluted the cover. This is more positive then the no comments at all on anything else I ever posted. A drummer that left a band I was in a while ago causing the band to break up posted that he knew a drummer that might be moving into town and he'd hook me up. I thought this drummer had something against me so it was a shock. That led to him face booking me to say that the drummer got some contracting jobs and was staying put. I thanked him for thinking of me anyway. His last message to me I took as the closest thing to an apology I will get from him. He said, Well good luck to ya Mike. I hope you can do more in this area than i did. Just keep at it man you will find the people you need.i have to face the fact that it is pointless for me to keep trying.just dont end up like me man. take care Then true to his odd self he blocked any reply. I paid for an add in the local news paper looking for a drummer and it was crickets until the last two days of the add running. I got one call from it. Met another drummer at Starbucks for a chat and both are interested in working with me and a guitar player. The Guitar player's reverb page is currently top rated in the area. So something may pan out soon. I can't help but think back to the drummer who quit the band after I filmed his basement and he got mad however. I been listening to the music at work and I believe in the music fully. I think it's brilliant but the drummer thought it was not like the death metal he wants to play. I keep thinking that who cares if it's not the style we'd rather be playing. Like lets say one of us was offered a Spot in Korn before they made it. Would we have turned it down because it was not our thing? What if it's just really good. Why not be involved in something new. I wonder if I can convince the Drummer and the Guitar player singer from that project to give it another try. The Drummer says he's open to anything that sounds good but he thought the vocals and guitar sounded Happy as ****. Can I get anyone's opinion on two songs here, THH L O C U S T Y E A R S and D A R K E S T G R A C E Northern Skulls Personally I think the sound is original, very dark and fun to play. I don't play on this but I was playing it all live.
