I go against my better judgement and let this guy talk me into auditioning for him. I love rock, but dont like to play it out much since the clubs dont pay you that well for it. Anyways, I did'nt bother to do my homework and relearn any of the songs required of me. I figure Ive done most of them many times in the past it'll all come back to me. *which it did*. I also let them know I didnt bother to brush up on any of the material. The drummer then barks at me (before we even played a single note) "You should come to an audition prepared." Im thinking to myself, yeah he's right, but **** um from what I can tell from him just tinkering around free styling he sucks anyways. We commence to playing the list, and it starts commin back to me, so after 6 songs the singer *who sucked* tells me that he'll call me wednesday and that it sounded good. The drummer was bitchin about my flubbed notes. So I tell them, nah, dont bother man, this kinda music just is'nt what I thought you did or what I wanna do and because I know it just doesnt pay well. The drummer chases me down outside to ask me why I dont wanna play with them. I said, well like you said, Its good to come to an audtion prepared, and Im sorry, but you guys didnt pass my audition. I didnt care for the musicianship or the music itself. So he starts going off on me, tellin me this, that and the other thing, the whole time Im just smiling, and say, well maybe, but you're still bass playerless, then got in my truck and left. I found it a bit odd that he couldnt grasp the context of why I was auditioning them as well. Heres a bunch of guys tellin me how pro their gear is and that it was, and how professional and good they were and that they werent. Moral of the story, never believe anything you hear (which I usually dont, so I dunno why I bought into this guys BS on the phone) and always be prepared for an audition no matter how trivial or easy you think it's gonna be because your name and reputation are still on the line. BTW this isnt for the one band I posted about the other day about jazz/top 40 stuff. That ones tomorrow which Im totally prepared for.
