So tonight and tomorrow night I'm playing with my old band. They haven't really had a full-time bassist since I left about a year and a half ago... they just sort of go with whoever they can get for any given gig. Well it turns out my current BL is out of state this weekend with his side project so I had the weekend free and my old band has a local gig so their BL was happy to take me back for a couple of nights. I left my former band on good terms and have stayed in touch with their BL so he's actually had me sub for them on a few gigs before and this weekend it worked out great for everyone. Now, the venue we're playing isn't the greatest, and my pay for the entire weekend will be less than I usually make in one night with my current band... but the way I see it, playing > not playing and if I wasn't doing this I'd either be sitting home getting nothing, or going out and spending money. So kind of a no-brainer. No real point to this post other than to say sometimes you need to slam shut doors on your past, but a lot of times it pays (literally) not to burn bridges when you move on.
