SORRY - I just gotta whine about a gig

Tonights Buzzard Meat gig , I am Melvin Jenkins to keep Leonard from being embarassd, is shaping up to SUCK. When I was asked to fill in for their 'front' man, I reluctantly agreed saying we had to play together at least once. OK that didn't happen - Now the drummer is 'iffy' on whether he can make it. I say well get another drummer - Oh we can just play without a drummer - are you out of your f&*king mind I don't wanna play without a drummer - the other guitar player can play congos...etc The fellow that booked this is a moron for putting people up there that has never played together (his band fell through) - but it's his name on the line not mine.

The only reason I have not backed out (wife told me not to do it from the git-go) is I would feel bad to leave them hanging. Good musicians
I have seen 'em play but never played with them. They speak of making up tunes on stage..etc. I am not a superstar but I have looked foolish on stage before and it's NOT fun for me..I have only been to this club a few times, packed to the gils out the door. A young-preppie crowd

NEVER again will I agree to something like this. The money is not great
I was only doing it as a favor to the harp player, had no idea it was gonna be this messed up.

Sorry I had to bitch. I shoulda told them NO when they refused to get together to go through a few tunes.

I wish I was better at being a a-hole-jerk sometimes.
