Well, they're 2 of my best friends, and I really don't have any alternatives for musicians to play with. Even if there were, nobody else around town is into my music, or the kind I'd like to be making.
So my options are either stay with a band that does almost nothing, or go solo.
And I don't want to be one of those sad guys by himself on guitar. I just don't think there's room for one more in the world.
But the band is gonna end when my drummer moves to california in a few months, so thats probably what I'll end up doing anyway.
