Ive never been in a band for more then a few months, every time I try to stay and keep things together oot always ends with egos going haywire.
I always try to leave my ego at the door and focus on the music and try to bring everybody's vision together into one coherent piece, but it seems that every person ive played with wants to become a rockstar instead of an artist and that this is THEIR band not OUR.
I remember when I first started playing guitar and this friend of mine played drums at the local brass-band, we would just join up once a week and jam our hearts out, thats the kind of stuff i want to do, just chill out and create something everyone can be proud of.
So yeah, long story short: Now I have about 5 different solo projects, all going nowhere and thats just the way I like it.
I also generally play as a session musician if theres any bands who need a bass or a guitar player at a gig.
