  • HCAF, tell me what you would do in this situation?

    I played a gig with my band at the beginning of November. Since then, we haven't practiced and I've barely heard from any of the other guys. The singer and I have tried to arrange practice a few times, but the bassist is always "busy" that day (no job, lives at home). We were practicing at the bassist's house (an hour from mine, just minutes from everyone else), but he suddenly said it's not cool anymore. So I offered my parent's house. It would be a 45 minute drive for everyone.

    Singer calls me Monday and confirms today with me (my day off, his day off). Says he'll call the other guys and confirm with them, and let me know where as soon as he finds out. He has no problem driving to my parent's house, but he wanted to check with the other 2 guys before committing to anything.

    Don't hear anything from any of them that night, Tuesday, or last night. I figured I would at least have received a phone call from someone, or an email. So I plan on not practicing. 12:30 this morning (while I'm at work...don't get off until 7am), the bassist calls and leaves me a voicemail. Says he talked to the singer, and he (the singer) wants to get together at his house to do a headphone jam (which is unproductive as ****************...run preamps through a mixer and use electric drums and headphones...) and write.

    Would you call back and arrange a practice, or would you just act like you didn't get the message?

    A. Quit the band

    B. Kick the Bass player out. He sounds like an unreliable douche. Come on man you can teach a monkey how to play bass.

    C. Quit the band. Sounds like an episode of The OC. **************** that ****************.

          Clearly this is an opportune time to start masturbating.

                      There is no such thing as an inopportune time to masturbate

                          Singer sounds like a straight guy, dunno about the other guys.

                          Sounds like its time to find a new bassist and drummer.
