Short Burst Series- Band Seeking...Band?

Short bursts of the musicians life...

In these dragging, wintry, days of unemployment from having any kind of "real" day job (which I'm finding quite palatable, by the way), I find myself perusing the mostly useless, but always entertaining, CraigsList. You know, for job postings, musician postings, etc.

None of the dirty stuff. C'mon, now.

There is, of course, the chance that I'll find something good.

Usually, it's just a bunch of crap.

Today, though, there was something I saw that was really weird, and yet, it's something that I have seen before, not only on CL, but also in publications like the Reader and the Illinois Entertainer.

The operative words here are "...seen before...".

We're talking several occasions.


Understand? (It really just makes me wonder, sometimes, just who the hell some of my so called "peers" are.)

I saw an ad saying that an "established" band was seeking "experienced guitarist, bassist, and drummer with gear..."


So it goes...

  1. I laughed....But, it makes me wonder what happened in the past would make one feel the need to state the obvious. Bet there's a story there somewhere......
