when i'm playing a show with my band, and before the show even happens, another bass player in another bands always asks..."can i use your amp?" and there is always some excuse to why he cannot bring his stuff. dude, why are some musicians just retarded? i dont care if it makes you have to go home after work to get it, ****, bring your amp with you to work. why is that such a big deal? i dont mind if someone wants to use my cab, its not a huge deal, but my amp and bass are two no no's. why dont people understand this? you buy expensive gear, USE IT.
