Sorry in advance for my rant, but i need to get this off my chest: So I have been helping out a friends band play showcases and get ready for some future shows (unbooked and all theoretical) but I'm not into the music nor do I really believe in the future success they keep reminding me is sure to come. I have told all the members both individually and collectively that I am not interested in being a longtime member and that it is in their best interest to find someone who is, however they continue killing me with their kindness and understanding of my position and say they are willing to have me as long as I'll stay with them. As a side note, my main band which has enjoyed some success, but is now on a hiatus, will be reforming under a different name shortly. I am going to be joining up with them soon which ive made very clear to the other band but they still are willing to invest their time on me. My main problem with this is that I don't want to invest or waste my time on a project that I dont enjoy and won't be involved in but they don't seem to get the picture when I explain that to them in friendly terms. Should I just split out on my friends or is there a better way to make a graceful exit? Please advise, I am frustrated with this situation!
