I'm in the process of leaving my present band and starting up another. I've been with these guys and girl for the past 8 months. I worked with them 14 years ago for 8 years and took 6 years off. As you can see, this band has been around for a long time, since 1967. The guy that heads it up is a complete dictator. There is no freedom of expression even in the smallest since of the word. Everyone knows when they sign on that he is the boss and he has the 1st and last word on everything that is done. Given the fact that he has had the same band for the past 30 some years and many of the members stayed with him for more than 5 years at a time, it is hard to argue with his methods. I'm quitting to start up my old band again because I just need more freedom. Why did you leave the last band you were in???
