There’s a LOOOOT of jerks, flakes, drunks, druggies, divas, etc., etc., etc., though, and sometimes you just don’t know whether you want to work with a band until after you’ve had time to think things through AFTER an audition.I would suggest that if the drummer auditions and is accepted, it's incumbent upon him to accept. Why else would he show up in the first place?
I know that things are revealed during the audition that may not be appealing - on either side. But I'm talking about going through the audition process without the intent of following through. Why do that? I don't know if that's somehow fun for the player, but it's a complete waste of the band's time. I've been on the band side of things for a long time, and they're not amused by those types.
The older I get, the more I am concerned about the answer to “Why is this job available?” when I am interviewing/auditioning. And since I’m kind of slow on the uptake, it can take me several days after meeting a problem person to understand exactly why I don’t want to work with them.
