Years ago in LA, Episode IV, A New Hope. It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have - Oh, sorry. Start over. Years ago in LA, people came from all over the World to get into bands. Drop some knowledge, professor. Some had to live in their cars before, and after, starting a band. Some of these poor souls made it in music. I have been playing music for a long time. I can play every lead I've tried to cover and, with a pick, can play Harris on bass. What is playing Harris? The problem is: I live in Bumfuck, ND (some call it Fargo) and if I were to get into a band in Minneapolis, I'd need someone to stay with til I got a job Woah woah woah, can we read that back for the court? The problem is: I live in Bumfuck, ND (some call it Fargo) and if I were to get into a band in Minneapolis, I'd need someone to stay with til I got a job or we made $ playing. So, what you're trying to say is that you want to move to Minneapolis to start a band but you don't have a job lined up, you don't have a place to live set up, and (I'm inferring, here) you don't know any Minneapolis musicians. You're just going to straight up move out here with nothing and no plan other than starting a band that will make the big time and you're telling people - people you've never met, mind you - that you're going to need to crash on their couch. To quote a gay porn my guy Gerbs told me about one time: Sounds like a winner. I'm sure there are dozens, maybe even millions, of guitarist and bassists in Minneapolis better than I; [raises hand] but if there is some band out there SICK of the big-headed prima donnas and into the likes of Priest (and Halford's other projects, Fight and Halford), Maiden, Ozzy, BLS, Dio, Accept, and the like, then respond to this ad and we'll go from there. Be sure to include, "I Trust Strangers In My House While I Sleep" in the subject line.
