My first band (1990-1993) fizzled out. All had just recently finished High School. Bassist (and co-founding member) decided he wanted to get married and start playing house. Second band was a cover band, (1993-1994). Had a ton of fun and got quite a bit of live playing experience. Other guitarist, and drummer kept fighting for "control" of the band. This led to a very abrupt end to this unit. Last band was around 1996/1997, didn't last long at all. Another cover band which was started by the other guitarist from the previous band. Again, playing the control freak role, and just seemed to want to play a lot of Metallica songs. Also, we had a drummer who was on disability or workers comp. As a result he could not play out fearing someone would see him, and he'd loose his benefits. Total waste of time, so I blew off practice one night, and was told to not come back. That band disbanded almost immediately after. Haven't been in a band in over 20 years.
