I know you all have met Mike. Mike is the guy who doesn't have a car or a job therefore no way to the show or way to haul the equiptment and is better than Houdini at dissapearing when time comes to haul it. This so called "Mike Problem" will only get worse. If Mike is on guitar the strings will get so much finger cheese on them that they have bonded to the neck and thump when you pick them. When you ask him the last time he intonated his guitar he asks, "what's that?".If Mike is on drums get a metronome. If mike is singing he thinks key is something they let him out of jail with the night before not something you sing in. Mike is SH*T that should be scraped from you and your band mates shoes, if you are currently dealing with one, no matter how friendly or talented. We had a Mike on guitar. Somehow he managed to pretend he was sober for two hours before our headline show! He would start a riff two bars early and end it four bars late. After we all took turns pissing on him an hour and a half after passed out by falling off stage halfway through the set, we told him we longer required his services. We found out later four valiums and a fifth of grand mariner were to blame and not him, he said. Lets hear your stories of misplaced trust.
