During your studies is the the best examples and it's always because they think they're gods gift but won't put their ego to one side, it usually involves:

B) Refusing to play something because it's 'beneath' them
It's a recipe for never getting hired and a lesson they learn the hard way.
The other thing is that you need a massive slice of luck and to be in the right place at the right time. If anyone knows of directions to the right place and could tell me the right time to show up I'd be very grateful!

Stumbled across these guys on Spotify on the way to a gig the other day. All shit hot players but relatively unknown too!
