Hey guys, I have a little story to share. Despite what the title says, I'm not really upset (and this happened yesterday), so sit and relax. My best friend Ben and I started a band 2 years ago with a drummer who had taken only 2-3 lessons before we played with him. He was an alright guy despite having different musical tastes and strict band practices times (practices had to be planned weeks in advance). He ended up going to a different high school than us (we kept with him), so the band took a big hit. He was always busy (even taking off a couple practices to hang with girls instead of us). He was a problem child for us. However, 3 months ago, practices started to absolutely NEVER work with his schedule. He was always busy. We would call twice a week to never get an answer or a call back. So Ben and I finally got fed up and decided that it's over and that we needed to get the over $1000 of equiptment left at his house, which happened yesterday. Apparently, Max didn't wait for us like we did for him. He had gotten into another band (screamo band, something Ben and I are definitely not) a few weeks before and they'd practice a couple times.... Max also forgot to mention that his new band used my equiptment (over $1000 worth), setting my 100 watt, 15 inch bass combo with full gain, full volume, and full EQ. I plugged my bass in with the current settings and it started to wildly feedback. Nevermind that they had been using my PA which is a much harder system to work properly. In retrospect, I'm glad nothing is broken (though possibly minorly damaged. I'm also glad that Ben and I treated him with much respect, even though he treated pretty bad. It was a completely bitch move he pulled on us. However, there's just something to knowing that Ben and I kept "faithful" with the band under all the circumstances.... what can I say, it's refreshing that we did the right thing. So that's my story, thanks for listening!
