My Rant - Week 3

Week three 'cos, technically, recess week was week one.

Once again, I have this insatiable desire to play music, and my current band does not look like it's going to satisfy me. Yes, we've finally got a new vocalist, and yes, he's pretty good (speaking of which, I should probably send him a copy of our new song. Gimme a sec.)

Okay back.

Where was I? Oh yes, the new vocalist. In case you didn't know, we haven't released the ex-vocalist. Weird, isn't it? I'm fighting a one-man battle to like get him off. In fact, I've been so pushy with changes I'm starting to think that the band guys should be starting to think that I'm difficult to work with. Frankly, the band's goals do not directly coincide with mine. They want to make have our songs on radio, and hopefully get a label. I'm not that ambitious. I just want to secure a small place to play my music and get paid for it. Well, if we do get recognised, that'd be nice, but seriously, who am I kidding? We're in little snotty Singapore.

I want to play covers that the crowds can relate to, not play originals that no one listens to. That said, playing an original every once in a while is a nice thought, but I don't want to bore my audience.

I've been thinking lately if I'm in the right band, and that if I should start looking elsewhere, somewhere else that I can truly find my music haven.

Maybe I'll get to play things I really like.

Maybe I won't feel like the villain who's so hard to please.

Maybe I want out.
