Earlier this week, my mother passed away. She was always very supportive of my music and would often come to see whatever band I happened to be playing with. She was a huge music fan and once saw Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Alice Cooper all in the same month. She also saw Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and many other bands. She once told me about a band that was looking for a bass player. I auditioned and got the gig. This led to touring and working with many well known artists. Here is the problem. I have been in a band for almost 2 years. I've known the guitar player for around 30 years. Not one person from my current band came to my mother's wake. Several people from a band that I was in 30 years ago and hadn't spoken with in at least 10 years, stopped by to pay their respects but nobody from my current band. I'm not sure why, but this really bothers me. Maybe it's because I would have been there for them if they had a death in the family.
