I have stumbled my way into a band. Basically, after discovering a guitar playing friend of mine is also really quite good o n drums I suggested we start a 3 piece and start practicing and writing while looking for another drummer to make us a four piece.

 

He was up for it so I set about getting in touch with a good bass player I used to know. I called a mutual friend only to find out the bass man now lives and works in Brighton (far enough away to be a problem) so the idea died.

 

The next day I had a call from him, he wondered why I was asking after him. When I told him he asked if I could make Thursday nights as he's working up our way one day a week. The deal was done. I mentioned all this to another friend who told me he used to sing in a band, and his son, who I also know, is apparently a very good drummer.

 

Now we have a complete 5 piece line up!

 

We're all getting together tonight at the local practice rooms.

 

We're going to start on a few covers and then start introducing some original songs, eventually aiming to have the covers in our back pockets for occasional playing.

Nice one.. I kinda wish the same would happen for me.. I so miss playing in a band and on a stage.

 

By the way I tried to PM you yesterday but it wouldnt go through.. You mentioned about PKR.
