Ok short story - been trying to get a new band together for 3 years. finally got hold of people I thought were good & after 12 months it fell apart. Thought about quiting music entirely but was talked out of it by my BF. spent a couple of months advertising that I was looking to join an already formed band cause I don't want the crap of trying to get a band together again. Don't find any bands looking for guitarists, but do find several people looking for musicians to collaborate with. end up chosing to work with a vocalist, Miranda. She's got a strong voice & in 2 months of working together we've written 7 songs. But we need a drummer & bass player. So we advertise on every music website we can find. We advertise in the trading post. For three weeks no-one even calls. Eventually people do, & they want to hear our music, so we send them some MP3's. Then the fcuking around starts. "oh songs are great can I hear more? cool I'll come & audition on the weekend" two days before audition - "oh sorry changed my mind you suck" Now for us to audition a drummer I need to organise a fill in bass player for the day. Same (but vice versa) for auditioning a bass player. I go out of my way to make sure I have someone to come on the day - only for these dicks to ring the day before to cancel. What is going on? Loz, you've heard my music mate, is it that compeltely shit that no-one is interested in playing it? I'm 30 yrs old, this is the longest I've ever gone without playing in a full band (2 years) and without a gig (3 years). I just don't know what the hell to do. I feel like I'm putting a lot of effort into something no-one will ever hear. I've decided that if no-one calls by the end of next week I'm going to sell all my musical equiment. The whole fricking lot. I just want to go home & smash it all right now.
