Comedian Darrell Hammond once joked that there are certain arguments where you can just sense will end very badly. For example, he said, if your wife comes up to you and asks how her outfit looks, “do you 1) lie and say it looks fantastic? 2) tell the truth and say not really, honey? or 3) go straight to the closet to get some protective headgear?”
Well I just called up my cover band bandmates and suggested we pull out of two shows because the schedule was getting pretty busy, and you would think I just kicked the soft underbelly of a defenseless dog. They were p*ssed! I just requested the dates off from the venue in question, so we’ll see if they even give them to us, in the first place.
