For me, the time and effort of putting a band together means that it better be what I like, or why bother.
If you realize you are one of the people mentioned, or you may know one of the people mentioned. I can say that it has been a privilege and a pleasure to play with everyone I have played with, and that I have drawn inspiration, knowlege, support and friendship from all of them along the way. My words are not meant to discredit any person or band I have been involved in.

Jamming is Jazz and Jazz is jamming.
Before I noticed this thread was old I was going to offer to come to a practice some time and teach your rhythm section how to jam. I'd have had your drummer launched into orbit in no time if he had only a little bit of ears.
"follow me, I'm going to lead things in new directions" should be all it takes.
