Re: Paying gig

I let all other bands I sub with know that I have ONE main band and if that main band calls, even at the last minute. I have to go.

Re: The Don Henley debate

Re: Which drum throne to buy?

Your agreement isn't needed, it's a FACT that the pricing is scandalous, I worked for YEARS in the furniture business, and the prices are usually FAR above cost, not just "let's make a decent living"...

Re: A little worried about upcoming gig with new band...

When at the gig, RELAX, be loose and don't get tense, keeping your wits about you so if you DO miss the changes you'll be able to cover. It's really not a big deal if you cover well.
