Last night I was asked "How can you live with yourself?"

Right. And if a guy you trust and who is a friend tells you his piece of mind, why not respect that? If it's just a dude that you'd blow off: then blow it off. But maybe there is something to it.

 

 

Or maybe he's just casting his own shadows. The only way I would respect a comment like that from a 'friend' would be if it was from a friend who knew me well enough and cared enough to honestly believe what I was doing was making me unhappy. But Jeff is obviously happy doing what he is doing. For his 'friend' to come off with a comment like "how can YOU live with YOURSELF" says he knows and/or cares NOTHING about Jeff but is only saying that HE couldn't live with HIMSELF. Where's the friendship and respect in any of THAT?

Right. Who knows. Not that big of a deal at the end of the day. WE get some "old timers" come out to our shows saying the same types of things: guys that remember the "old days" and metal and all that. They don't like our singer or our songs: they'd rather hear "the trooper" or something along those lines. But they're stuck in the past: those bands don't {censored}ing gig anyway, playing that jive ass sausage fest bull{censored}. But last gig, our drrummer and I busted out a few bars of YYZ just to show em we could.

Oh come on now, Wade, you know this can't possibly be the case. Of course everyone knows the guy is just a bitter elitist hasbeen working at a 7-11 pouting because he can't get a gig at all, let alone one where the hot supermodel chicks in the crowd just can't wait to take the dude with the funny hat and wig home and bone his brains out.

Dude, you owe me a cup of coffee now. Because it's all over the monitor. :facepalm:

HAhahaha.

 

Jeff's friend did say Jeff and the band sounded good.

 

When I was younger I went to see one of the bands my old guitar teacher was playing with. It was a "party" band with a female singer. Upon saying hello he said to me "so, have you lost all respect for me now". It was tongue and cheek... Quite possibly Jeff's friend might have been doing the same thing. What's the big deal about a "metal" guy not wanting to play pop music? He wasn't a fan of the material, but he still complimented Jeff on their performance and musical ability.

My feeling on the subject is that if mentally you feel you need to have a 80s porn star perm and bad dye job on your stringy thin hair ,, you might as well put on a wig and funny hat. Not a hell of alot of difference between the two, except with the wig and hat they are laughing with you, not at you.

hahah! Strange, me and the bassist did a little YYZ on Saturday right before our opening tune! Maybe that's why this friend of a friend was upset... After a few bars of YYZ we launched into Poker Face. :lol:

And yes later in the night he did say we sounded good and it wasn't his thing, but we can play and blah blah blah kinda stuff. I think of Grant's email he got from a fan that wanted NIAB to go back to playing hard rock (or more hard rock). There are a few people who want us to be who we were in 2002. Mainly a classic rock jam session that ended up playing the corner bar one night and never looked back... Well there are many more who like us more as a good time fun party band that is not afraid to play a wide range of music from the BEP to Drowning Pool.

Again, there is no problem with the guy not wanting to play pop music. The problem was him taking the attitude that Jeff should somehow not be able to live with himself because HE plays pop music.
