The BL replaced our drummer (that's another story) and asked our previous drummer to rejoice the band. He was super enthusiastic. Well we rehearsed yesterday for our gig on Saturday and he was bad. When I say "bad" I mean as in "bad a##". Usually I have to give the drummers directions, but not this guy. He nailed every song. He even played, or did not play, the breaks that we forgot to clue him in on. At one point he disagreed with the BL about one of her songs. Well we played her CD and sure enough he was right! He knew the singer/songwriters songs better than the singer/songwriter! So we fired him. We can't have him showing us up. Just kidding. He's a keeper. My bass playing dramatically improved with his great timing and playing. Needless to say I am a happy camper.
