For all of you wondering what the gig was ......
It's Avril Lavigne and I think I got it they called me back and we will start rehearsing in January smile.gif
I didn't get 6 pack and still need to work out but they have decided to give me shot! I am really happy and looking forward to start working with her! Also I have been promised to be in a lot of guitar magazines like Guitar player, and Guitar World with interviews! So it will be very nice! smile.gif

Will this be a touring gig or recording as well ? smile.gif

Tell her I love her and I want to have her next child!
Oh, wait - did I just say that tongue.gif - what is it with middle-aged men and Avril anyways?

Congratulations! What a gig!

Hi guys I wanted to share a story with you that happened today I got a call from a manager of a very big band so they want to hire me but there is a catch I have until march to get 6 pack, retouch my tats and get a new haircut smile.gif
This would be probably the biggest gig in my career yet but it's a lot of work in a short period of time I will do my best to pull it off:) they don't even want me to learn songs or do an audition!
It's not news for me but being a good guitar player is not enough what you guys think about the situation and what would you do?

As Leon Russel once sang, "Welcome to Hollywood, say, brother can you spare a quarter?"

It's tough figuring out where to draw lines but if you're a little hungry, maybe bending with the wind isn't too bad an idea. After all, you'll have fresh ink, a handsome new physique (stay away from the steroids, though; attacking the lead singer in a 'roid rage might not be a good career move biggrin.gif ), and, well, hair grows back. (Until it doesn't anyhow. Get old like me [or just have the right/wrong genes] and you'll be dreaming of the days when you weren't buzzing it down to make it look a little less balding.)

That said, only you can decide how much bending is too much. But, you know, if you were a stage or film actor, you wouldn't think twice, right?
