Hey all, My bandmates really piss me off sometimes. Here is the story. I get a phone call at work yesterday at about 4:30 p.m.. Its my drummer, he tells me another band called him, their opening band cancelled and they need someone tomorrow night. Great! He tells me our guitarist says he can make it, so can I. All we have to do is get ahold of our singer. This is were the problem starts. Our singer doesnt have a car or a phone. I pick him up on the way to practice because it is just slightly out of my way. He lives half way across town from me. As I am talking to our drummer, he is hinting to me that I should drive over to the singers house. I tell him that I am still at work, and right after I have to head over to practice with my other band. Now the drummer lives just slightly farther than I do from our singer. I ask him if he can do it, because A: he already home from work, and B: I have to be somewhere right after work. He reluctantly tells me ok. I call him around 7 that night from my others bands practice. He tells me he hasnt gone over there yet because he is busy fixing his vacuum cleaner! Again he is hinting that I should go over there after practice. What the hell? Why should I be the one responsible just because I pick up the singer for practice. Like I said, it is slightly out of my way on the way to practice, but I dont complain. I do it for the good of the band. But now its seems as if I am the one responsible for any type of communication with the singer. Anyway, I tell him that I will be at practice till about 10, then I have to go home and eat, then go to bed for work the next morning. Again, he reluctantly agrees to go over to the singers house. Well, its the next morning and I havent heard back from him. I guess we arent playing the show tonight because our drummer was to lazy to get off his ass and drive to the singers house. I know our singer should have at least a cell phone, and we always get on him about that, but; I was amazed that our drummer expected me to do something that he could have done. The moral of the story? No good deed ever goes unpunished. You do something to help people out, and they dont appreciate it, that just start to expect it. This is the first time I have had any issues with anyone in the band, but it has pissed me off enough that I think it is time for a band meeting to clear this stuff up. I was so angry this morning I actually was considering quiting the band. Well, thanks for letting me vent.
