Yes, i asked this of two of my bandmembers this weekend. Explanation - We are in the process of recording our new disc, 13 songs, have use of a pro studio, and some actual intirest from some investors. We did bass and drums last week and each member was given a copy (including crappy scratch vox and guitar) to take notes on. We all made it very clear that this stuff is supposed to stay in-house, that it's not anywhere ready to be released. Fast forward to this past saturday and i have quite a few people come up to me at our gig and tell me that "the new cd sounds great!!" ..... what...?? Not that we are the best songwriters, but we all know how people can rip off music and worse if not copyrighted, etc. Not only that, this has some of the worst vocals i've heard, and the guitar is scratch. really crappy scratch guitar. Turns out 2 of the.. let me say it nicely.. not so experienced members, had decided to make copies and pass them to friends. I'm a firm believer in not putting out product until it is FINISHED because we all take pride in what we do, and we all want it to sound as best as possible. From the engineer to the vocalist, we all want it to sound good. That and it's so easy to post anything online someone could hear the crappy stuff and be turned away to never listen again. So.. again my question to them was... What were you thinking??? Anyone else have to deal with this?
