Nah, we're stuck in cover band hell in casinos, but at least we make a living at it. I'm trying to work some stuff up with the guy who plays keys/guitar but he's got a record label looking at him (showcase in Feb) so I think we're about to lose him as I can't see a major letting him tour with our old a$$es. it's a shame, our drummer has been playing professionally for 35 years and he's so good it's scary - every gig I'm going " these guys want to play with ME!!??" every musicians dream - playing with better musicians
Before I hooked up with these guys I was always the best guitar player/singer (or bass player even) in the band, now I'm the worst guitar player in the band - even the drummer is better on guitar than me - and I'm maybe just a hair better singer than the keyboard guy. Every gig and jam with these guys is an honor. Rehearsal on the other hand........
Oh well, name another job where you not only get to drink beer on the clock the boss provides it free of charge.
sorry for the late reply, got a last minute Christmas party gig and the band had to learn 2 songs as part of the deal with a whole days notice.
go for 12 songs and extra points if you can find a rhyme for f'tagn
