CEB Posted October 11, 2013 Share Posted October 11, 2013 Guitar player got fired for being a rude prima dona at rehearsals. Found a fill in player who is a pro. About my age, old MI grad. Very versatile and good player. We were only going have 2 weeks downtime. The manager can't get everyone together for rehearsals due to a conflicts in some of theirs their personal schedules. I don't know who, it isn't me I will do anytime but early Sunday when the rest of the crew are not even out of bed yet. Manager gets frustrated, presses the reset button and pulls the plug on the rest of 2013 with a plan to reform the group and hit the ground running in 2014. I don't know all the details but I am sure I will hear them when I get back from Nashville tonight. He is a booking machine and a heck of a manager. This all happens while I am gone for a week. Well it was a good 4-5 year run. I can get a gig pretty quick but I liked this one. Do I take a new gig now or wait and not get paid until January? I hate to take a gig unless I can pledge at least 12 months to the group. I never wanted a reputation as someone who bounces around too much. This new gig pays but isn't exactly what I want. I never wanted to hire anyone that bounced from group to group. Decisions! You got to love the music business.
