What Should I Do? ***POLL***

Ok, before you vote ... read this.

For those of you that know me, I am a bass player and a few months ago I quit a band I had started and been with for 7 years for personal reasons. I've been dreaming about going on tour with a rock band since I was 17, and today I got a phone call asking me to do 130 - 150 shows next year (about 9 -10 months of touring) with this band:

http://www.myspace.com/eowynmusic


Downside:

In order to do the tour, I'd have to raise about 10 grand extra and I'd have to sell my 3


Upside of the downside:

If I sold my 3 and did the tour, I'd get this in return for about 9 mos.




K ..... go vote

If you want to do it, then do it.

And if you're making money on this, you can always buy a new 3 when your done.

Re: What Should I Do? ***POLL***

I've seen a lot of support for this,

but I haven't heard anyone actually speak up for why they voted

"Screw music, marry glaive and make lots of babies"

In the mean time ....

Re: What Should I Do? ***POLL***

well

on the one hand it is obviously an incredible experience but if you know anything about music (and i'm sure you do) then you know that life on the road, a year on the road, is super fucking tough on anyone both mentally and physically. a lot of musicians lose their passion for the music they're performing mid way through a tour and begin to become jaded, withdrawn and all around assholes. this sort of lifestyle also lends itself to frequent drug abuse, women abuse and other such acts of debauchery that one finds only on a music tour. not to say you'd indulge, but wheneveryone around you is into it then even the strongest resovle can crumble if you know what i'm saying.

i would be lying if i said this isn't a dream of mine as well. i'd probably sell everything i had for the chance to do this, but you can't rule out the fact that when you return you may possibly be a dramatically different person than the one you were when you went into it. and it is definitely a big commitment.

as has been noted, only you can choose obviously. i'd do it but that is me and i like debauchery

just be prepared and know what you're getting yourself into.

Re: What Should I Do? ***POLL***

Spending 5 hours on a bus each day I can't see the draw, but granted - it is a bit different!

It's 9 months - experience of a life time. Go for it.
