    The instant a band member yells at me, they're gone.

    "I do everything that people love to watch on stage, dont worry about people looking at you cause nobody will be (your playing bass). They all will be starring at me all night long, all you half to do is stand still and move your two little fingers ok. thanks, I will be holding more auditons this weekend. "
    if it is him I would have already left because he seems arrogant. Seems almost as a troll post on CL and made me laugh a bit
     
  4. I didn't see whether this is a full time gig or a weekend warrior/hobby thing, but either way you should look for another band. Playing music is what I do to relieve stress, not induce it. I'd rather play with (other) marginally talented people that I get along with than a bunch of (other) talented but obnoxious pricks.

    Wow. Really?

    This could be, like, a reality TV show.
     
  6. Jump and run... someone is clouding the vibe.

    This is tough to sell and retain.

    You need to bring it to a head. Whispered talk between certain band members is bad. With the whole band present, lay out your side of the story and demand an immediate resolution, or bail.

  10. I'd just put it to them that if they accept you as the Bassist, then they accept your playing style. If they don't want your particular style, then they can find someone else. End of story.
