we could get paid a fortune' date=' 200 a night (or more)[/quote']

yup.

Back in 1997-98 i was in a 'cover' band. :help:

At the time Oasis were big, and basically we played 3 hours of Oasis, Radiohead, Beatles, and even some Queen, Metallica and GnR covers. :rockon:

Saturday night at Champions (now Barracudas - bowling place in B of Don) would pay 250. :cheers:

Still remains the most cash i ever got paid for a gig............................ :down:

Problem is, once you have sold yourself to the devil and accept wadges of cash for playing covers to fat old Bailys swilling grannies in some shithole pub, its hard going back to the art....eg 20 for playing to 9 uninterested punters, that includes the bar staff!!

look man, i didnt ask for your opinion about how i'm sellin out, or how its unoriginal. you need to get out more man, stop replying to threads with pointless shit. and enough with this whole ''return to the art''. i doubt you are or ever will be some sort guru to me or any other musician.

ps, what the hell kinda pubs do you drink at?

Fair play to the guy if he wants to earn a bit of money from playing covers, and the same if he's doing it for enjoyment.

Look man I have no problem with whatever you want to do....I didnt preach about "the art", go read the post again but this time read what I wrote not what you think I meant.

If anything I was mocking the concept of some of our cherished local combos producing anything which could be loosly described as "art"

I played in a covers band for fuck sake so who would take my wise cracks seriously?

All I wanted to highlight was the slightly comical notion that you appeared to think that starting a covers band was in some way a radically new idea...

But all that aside, can I suggest that if you cant handle the odd wiseass comment then its probably best not to start threads on here.

Peace

...uh...

yeh ok ok. but man, you need to stop bein so condescending. and easy on the ''quote'' bit. jst look tacky and nerdy.

where i come from (26 miles east of the moorings), the only cover bands were covering metallica, pantera, RATM and if you wre lucky, the occasional darkness or chillis number.) i guess this pub jukebox idea is new to me.

but yeh, think this argument was a little petty. sorry man

peace :cheers:

Hey, would also be up for playing some classic rock tunes. Either singing, playing guitar (probably rhythm but depends how hard the tunes are) or a bit of both. At the moment thinking along the lines of

All Right Now- Free

Layla- Derek and the Dominoes

Don't Fear The Reaper-Blue Oyster Cult

Should I Stay Or Should I Go- The Clash

and other great tunes from anytime period. Basically anything which you are up for. And if I can't play it to start with then I'll go away and learn it.

Let me know whether you are still interested or not

Keep jammin'
