Just curious as to what everyone's playing situation is.
lol, that sounds really familiar.I played in original bands in Vancouver and Toronto until I was 30 and then I called it a day when someone quit the band and I just couldn't deal with wading through the crazies again to find another replacement yet again.
"Hey I'm calling about your ad for a drummer!"
"What kind of drums do you have?"
"Well I don't have any drums right now but let's jam dood!"
Hey man I just listened to a couple of your songs and you guys sound really good.
Bass players are a different breed. A few years ago, we had one contact us re: a Craigslist ad and agreed to meet at Grossmans where we were playing an open mic. The guy took a video of one of the tunes and posted to YouTube but never introduced himself or responded to follow up emailslol, that sounds really familiar.
We once auditioned a bassist and decided to call him back for a 2nd run a week later. He couldn't remember auditioning for us and got upset when I mentioned a few things he'd told us at the audition (info about his old jam space and stuff, nothing personal). He legit seemed upset that I knew anything about him! Nothing more weird than musicians
