    Thanks for all the responses. If I'd known they were going to be this funny, I would've put this in the Humor
    Well now I know the true meaning of GB and that it's not the type of band I would join. Hell, they wouldn't want me
    either, I'm too loud for the type of music.

    If I was paid a dime for every character posting on CL, I'd be...well...better off than I am now.;)

    My take: If you take a casual gig, play it to the best of your ability. If casual is beneath you, simply walk away without comment.

    First rule of showbiz: Never diss some other guy's act.

    True, but maybe they use it to try to exclude those who don't know what it means.
