Re: First Audition

That's absolutely ace.

Your story brought memories of the one audition I had for a covers band which went a similar direction.

Re: Relationship between members of the band

Agreed.

Re: Other musicians' view of drums.

Drummers tend to be ignored and their opinions often considered fairly valueless.
