    I hear you.

    I went back to school and am not in a band now, but at one point, after my son was born, I was in five (!) tribute bands. I would kid my wife that I'm bringing home diaper $$$. During the summer months, it was not unusual for me to have 2-3 gigs a week.

    I made over $11k my best year, which as you know, can really come in handy for "necessities" like ANOTHER snare drum.

    Or more travelling, restaurants, cable tv, car insurance etc. etc. When we start the Sheraton chain it might "feel" like a full income, ....but for how long? Time will tell.

    Check out my incomplete snare drum collection thread. I like it and think it is quite charming. :)

    How did the tour go, Dan? Kick out any stagelights?

    The cat's been out awhile now. Probably has kittens and a second mortgage on the litter box.

  11. Is this Illidan?

    No way. By this time the cat's been divorced 3 times and is living in the alley behind a restaurant.

    It would appear that Dan is no longer in the band...
