I've been semi-retired the majority of this year, but lately the offers have been rolling in. Nothing has really gone anywhere, but it's just nice that people remember me....... I got a pretty firm offer this weekend from a band who's bass player is leaving this fall. They do fairly standard cover fare 60's through 80's and they don't gig more than 2 times a month. That's right up my alley! I never really played a whole lot of Beatles stuff, but I have lots of time to learn. I gave them a tentative yes........ So just now, I got a call from my old drummy. (I LOVE this guy!) The band he's been playing with has ramped up their bookings with the expressed desire to play 52 weekends a year, and he really doesn't want to play that much. Sooooo...... He wants to get a start up band together. I love playing with him, and more importantly, I love hanging with him. I don't know what he has in mind for other instrumentation, but we both agree on who we want as a vocalist. (Another old retired veteran who is a great hang as well.) My mind is pretty made up, that I want to try the start up. If it crashes and burns on the runway, I should still have time for the other band...... Unless they find a bass guy by then, and I know they'll be looking. What the heck, I'll throw a poll into the mix just for fun. What say you TB?
