Wow, even being in a local band can cause drama.
So yeah most of you people reading this think that drama is only limited to highschool girls. I can attest that it is not, and it is prevalent in the music industry also.
A recent example is of a screamer vocalist named Austin Carlile. He used to be in a band named attack attack! Let's just say he did some bad shit, and got kicked out. He started a new band named Of Mice & Men. He got kicked out of that one and is now on very bad terms with the rest of the band.
My band? Well another band in our area we were friends with had a synths player, a guitarist, a bassist, and a singer. The synths player complained constantly about how they never got anything done, didn't make music, never played music, how the singer used to sit around and play video games all day, and how he used to focus 100% on his side projects and not their band.
So I ask him to join us. He does. We finally get live synths instead of having to rely on a laptop, and it goes great. Until the singer of that other band gets the notion that "if I can't have him, you can't have him". Doing petty little things over facebook etc etc. But then escalating into mocking us, telling people lies about us, and trying to get the synths player to quit.
So all in all, drama is pretty annoying, and I just needed someplace to vent. For those of you reading this, sorry if you did and you don't care. I like to detail events for this blog about a hopefully rising band so I'll remember it all years afterwards.
