I hereby relinquish and repudiate all band management responsibilities. I ain't gonna do it no more.
I've tried to do draw this boundary before but always get sucked back in. I have to be crystal clear about my intentions.
I will not book shows.
I will not promote shows.
I will not communicate or negotiate with venue operators.
I will not mediate discussions, debates or disagreements between my band mates.
I will not schedule or confirm rehearsals.
If rehearsal is not confirmed, I will not attend.
I will not handle money.
From here on out, I am the talent. I will rehearse and I will play. Nothing else.
I accept and embrace the reality that this will either radically reduce or completely eliminate my opportunities to perform in public.
One more show on Friday and then done with this shit.
