within 6 weeks, major changes will happen with your band. the drummer will accept a job offer out of state. the guitarist will announce that heís getting married and the fiancee isnít into the whole band thing. the singer will be offered a better gig. one way or another, the band will fall apart. for my part, i wonít say much or talk about anyone or complain. iíll just learn the songs, show up early for practice, and basically do whateverís required of me.

but we will never play out. the band will dissolve before that ever happens.

in some cases, just firing me will be enough to get your band moving in the right direction, but to be honest that doesnít happen very often. usually itís something innocuous and it causes the band to break up.

hereís the deal, though. some of the remnants will re-form a new band and they will thrive.

iím asking for $300 up front. itís up front because, face it, weíre not going to make any money gigging.
