People Are Strange / FOAD Friday
People are strange. Musicians doubly so. I tried out this rhythm section last Saturday. No great shakes. Ordinarily I would have said 'Thanks but no thanks." but because they seemed nice I decided to give them a 2nd shot. I should have known this deal was fucked when between the two guys I must have had 50 pages of email before we even played a note and the biggest point of contention was the fucking name of the band. I should have told them the name was Jesus Christ since that's what I ended up saying more than anything else. Anyway, to make long story short the drummer calls me last night all bent out of shape going "My head's going to explode. There's too much tension in the band. We quit." I'm like "WHAT THE FUCK?" It's a BAND. What's the big fuckin deal? You learn your parts, show up, play, get paid and go home. I can't understand people. They act like it's all personal. Whatever. Thank God I didn't hire these guys and then have them bow out on me before (or in the middle of) a gig because "There's too much tension in the band." What the hell is THAT crap? Sheesh. Welcome to Fuck Off And Die Friday. Have a nice weekend.
