Nothing personal but if someone is running the tempo,and the bass and drums have to keep up the group isn't in the groove. A gig would have to be really juicy,or worthwhile in some way for me to put up with what you're describing.The "leader" would really have to deliver the goods musically or financially.I played in a band with a singer who could do full on James Brown,Otis Redding,Wilson Picket stuff His own style, with all that sort of showmanship -he could work any crowd into a frenzy ,he liked to keep the band on a short leash,to keep us mean.When things got to the edge of out of control he'd say "hit me" and the drummer hit a snare shot,and the whole band would drop in volume and complexity.and start building again-the sort of thing that can drive a woman (or a man but I don;t swing that way) or an audience totally nuts. It was really,reallyfun ,for awhile But even James Brown's bands periodically quit,cause they get tired of the control trip.They'd get fined $50.if their shoes weren't shined onstage or for making mistakes. I want to have the guitar player ,singer ,dancers ,club owners and all such problematic people in the riffomatic,and sit there playing my congas while a whole band comes through the speakers. Maybe the audience too.Is there a way to incorprate an ATM?
