Re: Touring for no money
Sounds like a lot of fun actually.
Having done a bit of this myself, it's totally understandable that a band can't afford to pay a sub for this jaunt. Obviously they can't afford to pay themselves and being little known can't rely on merchandise sales to do much more than offset the cost of fuel, food, and drink.
The only thing that could make this tough is if the guys in the band are jerks or prima-donnas (no chance of that happening in rock-n-roll though, right?)
