Yes. This guy will not only waste your time but be a constant source of aggravation. You guys are middle aged. You don't need this crap - just people who know what they're doing and want to play.
Funny thing how middle aged people can regress when they return to band play, momentarily putting aside their highly paid day jobs for being treated like hired help for diddly per hour - and here's the kicker - because then the band will gain exposure
