: 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?
Why are we blamed when things go wrong? Because most of us are NOT Egotists,
and therefore easy targets for criticism.
