Theo Moore Questions... Morphology? Longevity? Incept dates?

Well, I guess I am not surprised. I keep trying to act like I am, but I have to be honest. I was assured that this wouldn't happen as result of taking the new job, but it did....and I should have known it would.

Basically, the band has decided to "move on" without me. Essentially, there is concern over my availability due to the travel job. The other members are thinking I won't get to practice, won't be able to come to rehearsal, and will be hard pressed to make shows. They did say that as a result of this they will probably take a "hiatus", but I think I really know what that means. The three of them will move on and continue playing, and somehow, I'll just never get asked back when the hiatus is over. They'll emerge with a new guitar player before long, I've no doubt.

I confess I am happy that at least they had enough respect for me to tell me outright rather than just not tell me at all and leave me hanging. Still sucks, though. All the money and time "invested" has been wasted. You know, I bent over backwards to support and be a part of this band for a year now. Worthless now.

I am very sad. Rather bummed, you might say.

Sorry if this is not the correct forum for me to express this, but right or wrong, this is the place I am doing it. Guess I should stop whining and move on, though.

I know how this feels. I was once dropped from a band for scheduling reasons. All the other members hung out together all the time and could rehearse whenever they felt like it. I had to schedule rehearsals around my job and family. I was the fifth wheel.

Being dropped because of scheduling didn't hurt, and I didn't mind the time and money I had put into the band because I had a good time while I was there. What hurt was the nagging suspicion that they really dropped me because I wasn't good enough.

That was four years ago. I haven't played in a band since, and I don't miss it a bit. Now I realize that it is much more fun to go hear live music than to play it. I only have to commit an hour of my time to see a show instead of hours of rehearsal and setup time.

This was meant to be an encouraging comment, but instead I seem to be rambling.

Theo, sorry to hear that. But one thing to remember is "Nothing is wasted" You always learn something from your life experiences. I know it's easy for me to say, but don't lose heart. Hang on. Jump on. And Move ON.
