Just a quick thought here. I have noticed a few of you and your concern about responding to ads for bass players.Things like why do they want my pictures, stuff like that. First of all most of the Vetereans here know that most of those ads are from guys sitting in their bedrooms that want to start a band and have nothing to offer. The Red Flags for these ads are more than obvious. Don't waste your time. Now, for the legit ads for working , established bands that document current bookings and a history of prior bookings, these are the one you take seriouse. Yes for these ads you should have pictures and a bio.
