I've been away from TB for a while and in that time I decided to try out for a band I know back home. The stuff is mostly stuff I know (indie-ish type stuff, some Muse stuff etc.) and the band was in the same age-range as me so I felt reasonablly good about this one. I was given my set-piece (Muscle Museum by Muse) and turned up with my Shergold. We set up, played and then they said they'd give feedback when they'd finished the auditions. A week or so ago, the band got back to me. I'd played pretty well (I should have done, I can play their set-list in my sleep) and they seemed really pleased with me as a player and band member. The reason I didn't get in? The ONLY reason they said I didn't get in was because I play a fretless, and they said it wasn't the image they wanted. This has got to be the lamest excuse I've heard in a long time. I could understand it if it was a playing issue or something which actually mattered music-wise, but for 'image'? ***?
