is beyond me... but it's mostly been true. REAL people get along with me just fine.
In fact, non-musicians are disconcertingly nice to me... i've had a bank account where i've gone in and they've just reversed over 100$ in OD charges 'cuz i was late and said so..! several times..!
But musicians... well not ALL of 'em, but most..
The stuff i've heard said after the fact, behind my back... oooh...nasty nasty..
Why am i on this rant?
Well, i've been contacting , or trying to, several I used to know.
and, ya know, I've thought about 'the jinx' that I've had, where bad things used to happen to me for no apparent reason at all...
It occured to me that nothing happens in isolation... it has to be DONE by someone...or...in fact... NOT done..as in this case:
While I was with this woman some years ago, the big issue confronting me was my inability to seem to get any press whatsoever.
Well, after a couple years together, we seperated, and she ended up with the fella that had the local Music news, with reviews of evertyone's gigs, bios, ratings etc etc.
Do you think i ever got a mention?
So anyways, it occurred to me today that it's an idiot move to try to build any kind of bridges with the very ones who turned the knife after jabbing it in the ole back...
What d'yall think... Waste of time? Or am I better than that?
Oh incidentally, I'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to the Smiley brothers (Todd and Jeff) of 'The Bratz', who've never been anything but perfect gennlmen... It's exceptions like these that , in fact, allowed me to carry on!
Go see 'em if you're on vancouver Island... ya can't lose on that one!
(Update) Well.. I guess it wasn't an idiot move after all.. only the good ones have responded.. the assholes have stayed away!
