This doesn't involve me, but it involves my former band (that involve my 3 best friends) The bass player in my former band writes amazing songs, not just straightforward punk stuff, its full of metaphors and such. Its a lot like Saves the Day type stuff. He is mainly a guitarist, but plays bass in the band, and he is much better at his acoustic then on bass. He and another friend of mine *Mike* (a real good bassist) started a side project, in which cody plays acoustic and sings (new songs and songs that my former band plays) and Mike plays double bass. The problem is is that this side project has only played one free show, but it drew more people then Bottlewink ever drew. Everyone loves it. Many coffee houses and clubs want them to play more shows. Cody wants to add a piano and a violin to the mix. Cody wants to have some songs only played with the side project, and not played with Bottlewink. My 2 other friends are pissed cause this side project is taking time from the main band, is drawing bigger crowds, and is *stealing* songs from them. What do you believe the ethics are in side projects. Who is *right* here?
