Do you guys have original bands in your area that have absolutely no fan base? Some of them might be great musicians, some of them might suck. They might have great original material or not. But the common thread - these guys have no fan base. That's no skin off of my back, but have you ever noticed how guys from these bands can whine, and whine, and whine about how it's so unfair that they cannot make any money (without any fan base)? Then they'll whine about how they can't get any gigs (without any fan base). Then they'll whine about how a cheaper band (without any fan base) stole their gig. Is this universal? Are there original bands with no fan base that whine all around the world? In your opinion, why do they spend so much time and energy on whining instead of promoting their band, or writing better material, or improving their skills? I'm really fascinated by these people, like looking a car crash on the highway. I've always been a person who solves problems through self-reflection, self-improvement, and hard work. I'm mystified by people who find a problem and, instead of trying to solve it, whine about it endlessly. It seems like a terribly unsatisfying, disappointing way to live your life. Thoughts?
