    I knocked down 3 pints of Belgian ale and 4 Jack 'n' Cokes, but no Sadowsky. I think the bass player was (wisely) keeping himself between me and his equipment.

    Now, did you want to make friends with the band, or did you want to "make friends" with the band? :eyebrow:

    Too much hip thrust
    I dont like musicians that much. Or maybe just people in general.

    My favorite move is to buy the band a round of really cheap whiskey shots in the middle of their set and watch their expressions. If I like them.

    I might have been loaded, but I was still coherent enough to realize that the bass player was WAY better than I am - even sober.

    Don't feel bad, I try to introduce myself to all the local bands when their playing out, and they do the same to me when I'm playing out. It's kinda like keep your friends close and your enemys closer. You never know when you might be playing a gig with these guys or get called to do a show with them, or need a band to open. I only do this with original bands though. Cover bands are like kareoke musicians to me, I'm sure I'll get flamed for saying that lol. I just have more respect for those who choose to write their own music rather than play whats on the radio 10 times a day. So everytime I see an original band regardless of weither thier good or not, I at least introduce myself, and compliment them on the show so they'll know someone was actually paying attention to them.
  17. haha i mind doing this when there was a few guys playing in my local, it was just 2 guitarists so i introduced myself and said i play bass so the buy me a few drinks and ask me to join and i for some reason say yes...never seen them before and never saw them again. i gave the guy my number but i was munted so i probably gave him a wrong one

    always the same, love being that guy but always hate him when he comes up to you :p

    Sadly, they were already out of Bass (ale) by the time I got there.

    And you are correct in that I will flame you. You could have just left it at that you like to sit in. No need to bash those that play any way they choose.

    Funny because I have more respect for cover bands who have to put up with those comments, and can play so very well that they can produce any style, genre or tone, actually make some money whilst having fun, and can most likely play circles around the so-called "original" band that can't even play there own lines properly but uses the "original" moniker as an excuse for having no talent. Seen and known too many originals bands who fit that very description. If they do, on occassion, write something more than the mundane and mediocre, I have the utmost respect for them and applaud their success. They are truly one in a million.
