I do sing in my rock band and my 4 piece blues band.
I don't sing in this blues trio. The leader is a walking jukebox who has worked with some real heavies in the business. The guy can serve up hundreds of songs, words and all, from memory. He likes his drummers in the background, personality wise. I did sing once with that trio last year, and got some positive feedback from the crowd, but I picked up a vibe from the leader that I was stepping outside of my designated area. He didn't use me for 3 weeks afterwards, so now I just play drums and defer to the bandleader. He is an extremely talented man, I have to give him that. Playing with him is the highlight of my life.

Pol you're a scream, where DO you find these clips?
Serious but jovial? I wasn't making fun of you, just makes for a cool picture you doing some gravely blues vocals while drumming.

The only reason I asked was because I knew you sang in your rock band.

I'm sure your singer is fantastic, leaving you on the bench for a few weeks when you got a warm reception sounds like a bit of a dick thing to do though. I guess if he's the leader and you love playing with him you need to respect his wishes.

Poly has way too much time on her hands, I think we've all established that :P
A disquiet mind at therapy with the music.
