Ok, well I used to play in a blues/rock band with the guys who I learnt to play bass with. Im a lot better that I used to be and have more experience than I wish to have. After having a very bad experience with a punk band for one gig as a favour (I learnt the set in 45 mins and the drummer was s**t ) Ive been put of playing anything that I dont love listening to. My best mate and I have both gone of to Uni. He has since joined a hard rock band and abandoned any hope of having a blues band. Should I sell my soul and do the same?? Has anyone else given up playing the music they love to get gigs?
