Recently, I was scheduled to do a fill-in gig with my old friends Black & White. It's been a while since I got to front a blues band and I was looking forward to the chance to play some of my favorite guitar music, not to mention that I'd be able to say all of the rude stuff I think at weddings but have to bite my tongue about. ("Hey! Nice dress! What, were they having a meltdown sale at the Crayola factory?") Anyway, with the gig a week out Don got the following email:

I have to canx next weeks gig . No one is parting and I have lost my ass the last couple months. Until further notice All band Gigs are Canx...If business picks back up I would hope you would want to play again. right now everything stinks..Sorry for last minute des ion but waited as long as possible to see if it picked back up. Hasn't.

I don't want to be a snotbag and criticize the guy's grammar, so I'll just wonder why no one is "parting." Are they waiting for Moses? Also, WHERE DID HIS ASS GO? To be fair, though, I used to know a drummer that got "canx" on his lower lip all the time and couldn't keep girlfriends because of it.
Weddings don't often get cancelled at the last minute (and if they do, we keep the deposit.) Blues bands have it harder, so give my boys some love - On the web at, or MySpace at
