: I know exactly where you're coming from! I've had it up to my neck with the temper tantrums and jealous fits by guitarists and drummers in different bands. Nowadays when this happens, I simply quit the band. It's not worth the headaches and frustration putting up with these showboats. I was in a 80s-style metal band a few years ago and watched in disbelief as the drummer threw his sticks across our reheasal hall, screamed that he was "tired of lousy musicians", and stormed out of the room.
: Like the other poster said, just take it easy until the next opportunity comes along. Thankfully, not all guitarists and drummers are assholes.
: This brings up an interesting thought...why are bassists usually the musicians blamed when a performance goes wrong?
You know, I have a theory on that. The way I see it, is that people in general just groove along with the music, not really percieveing every nuance, and then all of a sudden when the drummer messes up, the person in the audiance knows something is wrong but they just cant put there finger on it. all they know is all of a sudden, the drummer and bassist are not locked in and the person is thinking...oh the bassist must have f**ked up. Anyway...that's what I think,,,,,,,peace
