    Default How NOT to conduct yourself on a gig

    Whoa! This guy flipped out and cost the band the gig.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

    Having dealt with musicians for roughly 45-50 years, I have come to the firm conclusion that the majority of them need to spend some time at a mental institution for the musically deviant. This includes, but is not limited to, singers, guitar players, and (surprise) drummers.

    I have tried to find out why this affliction seems not to affect bass players and keyboard players who (by everything I have seen) have discovered how to be "mellow", and can sit and watch the lunatics, mainly the aforementioned singers who cannot hold a note for more than .3 seconds, yet act like they have the "cool" that Sinatra had. Guitar players who think they are Segovia but can't get out of 1st position, and, of course, drummers. All 1 has to do is watch the beginning of 2001 and it becomes self-explanatory.

    Having spent the better part of 10 years in mental institutions (some misguided people refer to it as marriage) probably explains why I require an IV of scotch every day.
