Well, about 5 months ago I got into a great original rock band, but enough is enough (already). Throughout the time, there has been no-call no-shows, leacing after 1 hour of practice, and tons of other attitude related problems. The forementioned REALLY sucks when you consider we were only scheduled once a week to practice anyway. This last weeks practice was spent arguing, an instrument was never even touched the entire time. If you ask me, the basis of the argument was something between me and one of the guitar players, which I have been good friends with for a long time, and still am. The REST of the guys in the band (actually just 2 of them, drummer is cool), got all over me about it. Some of the things I was told is: "you don't have the authority", "you're not an original member" (like he thinks were the beatles or something), and "you were hired in". This really sucks from my standpoint, as I am 1 of the only 2 guys out of 5 that have done anything to try to promote the band, like make websites, book gigs, etc. I took a lot of pride in this band, and actually felt like I belonged. The disrespect I was shown pretty much ripped my heart right out of the band. I have decided to either just show up and "go through the motions", treating it like a hired gig, with no loyalty.....may look for a second band. Or maybe I should just go get my stuff and be done with them. This sucks, its like breaking up with a woman or something. PS., the ONLY think even remotely keeping me is my friendships with the guitar player and drummer.
