For no good reason? I've got some time off from work this week so I've been contacting some old friends. 2 of my old friends, who by no coincidence live with each other (I hooked them up when one needed a roommate) seem to have decided they're not talking to Joe Nerve. Douchebags! Just had to get that out before continuing.... One of the guys I played bass for a while back, for hire, and when he couldn't afford to pay me anymore I still did a couple of shows - but his stuff lost its priority because I had other gigs that were either paying or that I already had more of a comitment with. He was cool with it (at the time), and I carried on supporting his music, talking every month or so - I got him a couple of shows with The Nerve!. Was always real supportive. Now about 6 months ago I tried to contact him, he wouldn't return my calls, I emailed him, and he sent back some gibberish that I didn't understand about him being sick of people who have more important things to do that support his music. At least that's what I thought he was trying to say. Still wasn't even sure if he was angry with me. Anyhow - I emailed him again, and he's clearly ignoring me. Went to his website and noticed that he listed a cd that I recorded with him and it says all the instruments are played by him. Hmmm..... I'm just venting. Writing too much, but this crap is eating at me cuz I've never been anything but supportive of this guy. His roomate is doing the same - his roomate and I were best friends for about 6 years. Played in a band with him for a while that just kinda fell aprat. What's up with people???? I gotta just let it go. Some people are gonna hate me. Gee, I even hate myself some of the time. Vent done. Any of ya'll ever go through this crap?
