    oh, I guess I can't see if you raise your hands so reply here instead...

    before you do, I mean...

    "who's been in a band that made money?"

    you may have only played once but you gotta have gotten money for your performance to qualify. No 'they paid me in beer'... money, that you promptly spent on beer... I also don't care if you played the triangle, even if your part was a 'guest shot', as long as the band got money and you drank of the beer that money bought... and, of course, NO ROADIES!

    i have weekly gigs but they only pay tips. but every now and then i get a call to play with people. like in january i'm playing at a little club in NJ...cept i'm talking about jazz music, so people who play upright bass like me are usually in demand to play with any group....

    my first real band tho was a rock band and we wrote some cool tunes and played a couple shows...the good ol' days

    I played a grand total of 3 gigs, one open mic, two as an add-on member of a friend's band who were bad (slow) at changing broken strings and tuning back up. They had me fill up the long awkward pauses with my sound collage stuff, and one of the songs had some spoken word samples. We were ultra low-tech so I just had my tapes ready and ran them off a boom box hooked into the sound board, timing the pauses manually. I think I made five bucks for the whole shmeal.

    I might add, I've been TRYING to get a band together for 10 years but can't find the rest of the cast, particularly on drums. I'm one of those dime-a-dozen drop-D guitarists who know the basics and a bunch of Tool and Helmet riffs.
