Yep, I have become a victim of this old cliche. Mixtape Love Affair is koput. I should probably think of a new username. You know the story... the drummer and the keyboard player fall in love, and then fall out of it. I'm guessing this is probably a pretty regular occurrence. They also happened to be the two lead vocalists in the band so it really can't continue without a significant overhaul. I really feel like an idiot for joining this band in the first place, because pretty much everything that happened is exactly what I expected to happen. One of the responsible parties is a close sibling with a lot of personal vices who is just about incapable of having an intimate relationship with the opposite sex, mostly because of said vices. I practically begged the two of them not to get romantically involved, because it would not end well, and true to form (and in spectacular fashion), it has definitely not ended well. Like, restraining order territory. I feel like I've wasted two years of my life. I learned 40 songs in a couple of weeks and worked really hard on it, only to end up doing about three gigs. We lost two guitar players along the way and had a really, really hard time whenever we auditioned new ones. Maybe they knew something I didn't. On the other hand, I've become somewhat competent on a second instrument, and found a cool hangout for those who play it. I guess it was worth it in the end. And so ends the first band I ever played bass in.
