I feel like now a days people are missing the most fun part of music: having fun. Gigs are extremely fun for me and I think they are for most people. My band is currently split into two factions. One that wants gigs quick and one that wants an album as quickly as possible. We are ready for both but my singer is like OHMERGOD I AM GOING TO BE SO FAMOUS MUSIC IS SERIOUS BUISNESS!!! Honnestly I would love to make a living from bass playing but only when it's fun. I don't see how releasing an album is benificial when no one knows you. And I don't see how it's fun. Keyword in this thread is fun. Honnestly I think the whole not wanting a gig thing is incompetence in the singer's side because she doesn't even memorize lyrics. Not even her own originals. Anyways, rant over. Why do you play gigs? Money? Fun? To save the world?
