Ever. Day 1 The Auditions I know how hard it is to audition. It's like you're throwing yourself wide open, like raw meat to big dogs who don't care if you're dead yet. Fred and I sat behind the long folding table with our bios and checklists and bullshit papers spread everywhere. We tried not to be big dogs. I leaned back in my chair and pulled my hair into a ponytail for a second to cool off. "What a day. " He rubbed at his eyes. "Nope. " He flashed an insincere grin at me, showing small square teeth.
I'll tell you why I'm here. You're better than Buckley, dude. I never thought I'd say that. You're like Bowie. Hell, you're better than Bowie. You are the best singer I've ever heard. well, you've got a guitarist. But you need a bass player. So I decided to audition for bass, but it was too late for that, too. The open audition was over.
