Le sigh. I just found out that for the next 12 months, I simply won't have time to commit to a band. What's worse, I just got in with a killer new trip-hop band, and had to tell them that I was backing out. How do you cope when you KNOW that for an extended period, you just won't be able to rock out with others? How do you stay inspired? For me, playing bass is fun at home, but it's REALLY about making music with others in a live setting. I'll barely have enough time to practice at home, let alone rehearse with a band. Fudgesicles.
