lol okay. Just sounded like you were talking about yourself here: "Constant complaining that everyone but himself was an arrogant asshole was his schtick though." Meta as fck
So tell me what you bring to a band! I've got a band together that needs a bassist. I write music, lyrics, sing a little bit have a vocalist lined up... just one piece missing!
What's your name? Age? Where you from? What gear do you use? Can you provide demos/samples/documented experience?
You can call me Josh. I am about 51 years old.
Yes I can play bass and my parts arent at all bad, but I need constant ego stroking and reassurance that my contributions are AT LEAST as valuable as those of the songwriters. This especially in light of the fact that I never write any music or lyrics from scratch. Dont worry though the moment I add my awesome part, the songs transform in to MINE. Once this happens if you make any comment that is less than positive about the song, even if you wrote the thing, expect a barrage of abuse and character attacks.
I will go around town bragging to anyone who listens about the tracks on which I collaborated. I will make sure people agree that my part were the most important contribution. This may even happen with recordings that I havent yet added any parts to (yet!).
Being in a band with me means that you have to be ready to receive loads of constructive criticism. If I dont think the music you come up with is representative of what a band I am in is all about, I will definitely let you know. Also if you comment less than positively about my contributions, expect a barrage of abuse and character attacks.
When I quit your band, likely just before a gig, expect that its a power play as I am not being given enough control. I will expect you to beg me to stay and give me what I want. If you go and replace me, expect that I will come to your gigs and criticise my replacement. If you say my criticism isnt welcome expect a barrage of abuse and character attacks.
I am a parody of a real extremely insecure yet egotistical bass player - got it?
