I know I am getting a little ahead of myself, but getting rejected for that audition this week is getting to me. I played bass flawlessly. I have stage presence based on playing and being a student of Pop/Rock music & culture for 40 years. Extensively performed on the Springfield, Missouri bar and club circuit, I thought it was a good match, they didn't. Here is my question, the plight of the aging pop rocker trying to get back in is going to really difficult.
