Recently I have been looking at options looking at other bands. I want to play out more than 2 xs a month and I was concerned because my band mates have other things going on in their lives that impact how many shows we do. I am at the point in my life where Im free to do (within reason) what I want and that is play a lot of shows. Well, I found out that most of the bands I auditioned for really would not put me in a better position. And these bands were really not playing the kind of hard driven rock that we do(sort of 70s style) I also came to the realization that I have 4 great band mates in my band. They are all professional and good people, no drama (except for 1 little incident which is over with and buried). We have one of the few hot lead guitarist in the city, a passionate rhythm guitarist that doubles on keys, writes great songs and provides a wonderful rehearsal space in his home. A really cool technically advanced drummer and finally we have the hottest and best female front, lead singer in town. Regardless of how much we play I am staying where I fit. Just something for you anyone to think about if you are dealing with the same challenge. Comments?
