Got invited to a gig
Boy, I need to take this to the wife. Our baby is still too young but oh well.
A couple guys I know, a drummer and a keyboard/guitar player are forming a cover band. Steady gig, they already have been hired at a local club. both great musicians and very experienced, as they are several years older than me (One of them has been playing since the late 70's). They are looking for a lead guitar player, basically. I have known them forever, and they thought of me. I am flattered, actually.
Classic Rock is the game (i know: these days that would mean Nirvana, the way I see it). They would basically focus on 70's and 80's stuff, with some 60's and 90's as well. The names Beatles, Doors, Floyd and Zep were mentioned. for 80's stuff Whitesnake and Def Leppard were brought into the conversation.
Last year I got invited to a Sabbath tribute. I had to pass when I injured my shoulder. I am almost up to speed now, and it's not like I would be playing speed metal. I think I would enjoy this a lot, but as I said, I need to take this to the missus. I already have a lot of work as it is...
I'll let you guys know if this actually happens.
