dude, i just had a show tonight. now mind you, tonight was a big night in my area for summer "close out" parties. they were having this thing right by my house where alot of local bands were playing. they also had a similar thing in this really white town called livonia. my drummer told me the gig was at one place but was drunk and mistaked the directions. Intrestingly, there was a township carnival on the intersection that he said, where local bands were playing. instinctively, i drove up as close to the tent as i could before being met by a police officer (livonia PD). i put up the biggest fit about how im supposed to be there and we were going on shortly and i needed to get ready, with no time to spare for this bullshit. anyways, after a bunch of bullshit and finding out i was at the wrong gig entirely, i showed up too late for the show and my band went on and played without me. this is where i kinda get pissed off. i wrote and currently write all of the music for my band including every instrument. i know for a fact how much of the damn music is geared towards guitar playing, and guitar led jam sections. ill be goddamned if these fuckers went on without me, played the whole gig with no lead guitar at all(<b>including improvisational sections</b> which had to have been boring) and then blamed the whole directions thing on me. so i totally got dicked on playin this decently sized outdoor gig and got blamed for the whole thing. see what happens when you make a band with people of ill wisdom. has anyone else had a similar experience at a show where they got dicked or something messed up happened?
it's always your own damned fault. You should have known better than to take directions from a drunk. I also think you should put some thought into getting over yourself. No matter who's fault it was, your band did what they had to do, the show must go on. You should be glad your band is able to play a show without you. It doesn't matter how much you contribute, or even if your the centerpiece of the whole show. YOU ARE NOTHING WITHOUT YOUR BAND. It takes more than one man to make a full show, unless your "that good" and if you were that good you wouldn't be bitching about it on some forum such as this.
