Last night I'm over at my guitarists house with the guys, just hammering out some rough spots in a few of our originals, and the drummer says, "Hey guys, I wrote some lyrics last night, let's work something out for them!" I figure this is great, the drummer taking a more active approach to songwriting (and perhaps helping to improve the image of drummers as musicians ) so I read them. Now, I'll play just about anything, but when I read these lyrics I was truly appalled at the fanatical racism in them. If there is one thing in this world that I honestly despise, it is racism. I told him that, while I think he has a great lyrical sense (the thing was well written, even if I didn't care for the message in it), I cannot and WILL not be part of cultivating or promoting the ideas he was presenting. Naturally, this caused a little bit of friction, and wee wound up calling it a night shortly thereafter. What I want to know is, do you think I was being an a$$hole about this by refusing to have any part of the song? What would you have done in a similar situation?
