okay people, I need your help here... I'll explain something. I am in a band at the moment, a band I love more than anything. I guess I could describe it best as Ben Harper-ish stuff crossed with Fleetwood Mac-ish stuff. I love this band because it is full of so much talent from everyone, plus the BEST drummer I have ever played with (we clicked instantly, & he has been playing since he was 5). We are starting to gig more and more, and people seem to tell us we are the shizit. We have so far played a handful of gigs, and whenever we do we have producers galore come up to us. Anyway enough of that...Okay well 2 bands are now in need of bassists where I live. They have both asked me to do it as there other bassists have other things to pursue. One of the bands has already secured a contract with Sony, and if I accept, then I fly across the country to record for sony and shoot a video. The other band is DEFINATELY on thier way up also, and I believe that they have just been signed as well, a matter of days ago, exactly. People seem to think I am stupid for wanting to turn these offers down, as flattering as they seem, in order to pursue my other band. I honestly can say that my current band has must as much, if not more than these other 2 bands have. Not to mention that both of these 2 bands are very much so one of these cool new, "The..." bands that are around now, with stupid haircuts and, "yeah yeah yeah!" chorus's (yeah, you know the type)... Where as my current band allows me to play the kind of bass style I like... hmmmm...help guys! Please offer me your opinions, or stories like mine, as I need to put my mind at ease Do I take the ticket to instant success, or turn it down for what I truly believe in?
