    I've been thinking of joining the union mainly to just to make some contacts.

    What do you all think of the Musicans Union?

  2. Can´t speek for the US Union.

    But the Swedish and English Union have caused me
    nothing but trubble and headache.

    Won´t go thure the details regarding the Swedish..
    The English I will never forget.

    Many years ago I was hired to do a live show
    in London UK as a stand in. The English Union demanded a UK player for the job as I was not
    one of the bandmembers. The band of course did not accept this and we had to fake a recording
    in a studio (for playback use).
    We never recorded anything, used tapes from the records. So although I got payed generously,
    had a great time in London, I never got to play
    this gig I looked forward to.

    The bands name was ABBA.
    Maybe you have heard about them ;-)

    No Union, but stand united with musicians :)
