Apparently I am the worst bassist in Austin!

as implied by a drummer we auditioned last week. he certainly has some issues of his own to deal with…

wow, im really dissapointed i havent heard a word from ya, so i thought i would drop a line. i aint mad, im glad really, but i thought i would share my thoughts with you about it. i dropped a line to your bass player a week or so ago, from which he never responded. kinda fucking rude aint it? well, i didnt think it went that bad, but i understand i guess. i know your a good guitar player but im looking for something a lot more creative and original. i do think its riduculously selfish for sean to not respond to my letter at all, he is a terrible bass player, no creativity or chops to speak of. im insulted by his lack of response really. i wont take any shit from people who have no business playing music. i merely stated i had a good time jammin, he coulda said hey, me too or naw, you suck or whatever. his carpen tunnel that keeps him from drumming must also keep him from typing i guess. whatever, i don’t treat people this way. i don’t stand for being treated that way either.

we are all busy people, i took the time to drive all the way over and wait for some dude who cannot even say thanks… how typical… i have no time for bullshit or trust fund babies. you already know this about me.

i gave you a shot because you seemed like a real person. i know you are busy, i have no problem with that. i also know it doesnt take two seconds to send an email saying thanks for coming, i will get back with you as soon as i can or no, its not gonna work. if somehow yall feel your beyond me, i don’t get it. but i am too busy as well to tolerate this kind of bullshit.

thanks for nothing. and don’t bother… all your songs that i have heard sound the same anyway. i guess what im saying is if you were really any good, you wouldnt have any trouble finding players, i certainly don’t. you obviously settled for that bass player! this town is filled to the brim, with people who appreciate others and the efforts they put forth.
good luck with yours!

Our drummer quit. It was inevitable. Lots of factors involved and most of it is between him and the guitar player. Not to mention he lived a long ways away from band practice, so economics and family play a part too, but those are just the icing on the cake.

Fortunately I’m just an innocent bystander in the whole thing but it sucks. He’s a great drummer and a cool dude. That combination is hard to find in a musician, especially in this town. Buncha savages.

So, if you know any drummers in Austin, TX who are into instrumental guitar rock bands, send them my way.
