Default Re: Acceptable reasons for you to get up from the drums mid song?

The show goes on. Musicians are supposed to be like the old mailmen (mailpersons) ... "Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we'll carry the mail, we will not fail"

30+ years ago a guitarist packed up and walked out of a jam because the other guitarist soloed endlessly. I don't agree with walk outs but I could understand that he didn't feel inclined to play a support role for someone who was being selfish.

Much more recently a bassist walked out because she didn't like a particular song and didn't want to play it. Had never mentioned it before - just one day she put down her bass and walked out.

Never had a gig walkout to date, thank Omnipresent Deity.

Who needs the drama? Just shaddap and play.
