Re: Why is it so hard...
Thank you, Resohead. I can agree 100%.
Last weekend I got invited to sit in and jam on a recording session at a friend's house. Really good musicians were there and I was honored to even be asked. (I'm certainly not the best drummer by any stretch but not the absolute worst either, lol.) I found out later that my friend who hosted left his successful band that played the corporate gigs because of two new singers the band hired that were so forceful and egocentric that he got tired of it. He was one of the founding members of the band is the sad part.
I don't aim to be the best, just the best looking.
