Well for the last 6 months ive been in a band called Oblivious, playing mostly covers and a few originals. They are kids,(all are younger than me)but we do play paying gigs. Okay, now the weird part. 2 weeks ago, i went to try out for a really really good ska band, We will be playing LARGER! shows. This is promised pretty much by the guitarist and lead singer, who ive known since I was like 11 and he got me into punk rock more than I was.( I was listening to the Replacements in 3rd grade.) Brian just helped me expand my music into Less Than Jake, The Aquabats, Nofx, Lagwagon, and the almight Descendents. Well im in his band now. He called me up and he was like "If you can put your time and effort into this; we want you to be the full time drummer of our band, because those 3 tracks we recorded,were our tightest and best. We think its your fault too." I was flattered!!! The best thing is, I dont have to haul my drums to practice. (Oblivious never has practice at my house, and i have to haul around drums.) Well, i might have to quit oblivious. Jordan and mark are bros to me, but Jay is still the same ass**** hes always been to me. I dont like it either. They make me Haul my drums to practice, The bassist has a small 25 watt practice amp. ( I have to haul my 400 watt bass amp plus my acoustic drums.. to the shows! ) The guitarist has a...2x12 amp. Its portable. The lead singer doesn't have jack crap. Well a 20 dollar Karioki mic. Plus hes not a good singer. On with this new band. Currently they have no name, but we are gonna come up with one friday night. The guitarist has a full studio. We get to switch around instruments, cause everyone can play different Instruments in the band. The bassist can play more than root, very well. Hes very Melodic. We record the practices. We have an excellent singer!!! I gotta say, she can hold a note longer than Manyard from TOOL. Its all originals. We might do 1 or 2 covers a practice, but mostly originals. I know these guys are completely honest too. Unlike Jay(lead singer of oblivious.. who has a shoplifting habbit) Well Jay was talking to us sunday and told us that he didn't want us playing in other bands. Because it was like "we are cheating on him." I dunno, I guess hes OBLIVIOUS to the fact that hes a douche bag.
