I was reminiscing about the time I didn't get the gig because I looked like a "geeky/dorky" jazz fusion player and not a rocker. I was angrier than a mosquito in a mannequin factory. "I 'm not a geek, nor a dork you jerks, That's the clean version. I sure told them. I was right and they were idiots. They tried out other players came back with an apology and my bass humbly strung at rock level. Got the gig.
