Re: Point of View - Behavior of Band Members at Gig
Seems pretty lame, the majority of people at bars are their to drink, dance, & get laid.
That kind of thing might go over well at show where people come to listen to a group who plays it own music in the rock or art/scene clubs. but if you are the bars paid entertainment then tell these guys to stfu.
I play in an original group and one of the guitarists always wants to do some kind of Jimmy Page's Black Mountain Side ripoff as a song at our shows, and I always shoot him down. I think playing one of our actual songs would be better than some ego driven solo spotlight.
