At the local hard rock bar last night the band cancelled at the last minute. They called a singer to round up some guys to do about 3 cover sets. He brought a guitar player from his old band and the club owner sat in on drums. They did find another bassist who was only willing to play for an hour or so. Then the guy asked if I would sit in the rest of the set and if our old drummer would also sit in so the owner could sing. I actually went home (around the corner) to get my bass. I get there and am telling the guys the songs I know and the owner comes over and says "you aren't calling shots here, I am". I say, "fine. but I don't know the songs you want to do, but I can do these". HE then says, "well, I'm calling the shots." They play with no bassist the rest of the night. I go home. They sound crappy.
