The adventures of an accidental band manager.

...and even as we speak...another idiot approacheth...
....and as I hit the PUBLISH button on the last entry the phone rang, and lo a prospective guitarist spake unto me (well, unto the Bass Boss actually)....
IF THEY WON'T PRACTICE, FUCK 'EM.
Actually it used to be "Every musician AND every band must rehearse regularly. Anyonse who says they won't rehearse doesn't get to be in the band." But its been a stressful few weeks, so I've abbreviated it a bit.
You CAN'T be a working musician without daily practice. You can't be in a gigging band without regular rehearsals. Just trust me on this one, will ya? If you don't put in the time you'll sound crap, and you'll look and sound crap on stage. People pay you to show them a good time, and that takes work.
Anyhoo - Bass Boss politely suggested that he might be a wee tad bit undercommitted, but that he should go talk to his wife, his guitar and his God, if neccessary, and call back if he thought he could find the time.
We'll never hear from him again. Which will be nice.
