Re: Gigs that Require 1099 - Questions

This would work as well but I don't know about the separate checks part as most clients want to write only one check. But Bo may be more charming and persuasive than I! Also, something else for you...

One possibility is for you to be the 1099 man a far as any checks from clients/accounts and then have 1099s filled out for...

Re: Peter Erskine moves to Tama...

I was always (and still am) fascinated by the lugs on the Tama drums up until the Granstar line was offered as they looked very similar to Rogers (as did Pearl). Pearl's tom holders for awhile...

Re: Peter Erskine moves to Tama...

Re: When soundmen attack

Being a soundman isn't synonymous with being a producer; a wise soundman would realize those limitations and, being the professional, would just go with it and realize that smooth sailing never makes...

Re: Brian Tichy: The Importance of Consistency

No, and no.

We will hammer out those problems either at rehearsal or on a break. My responsibility, as the drummer, is to know those songs and tempos (just like Bermuda said in his clinic). The...

Re: Brian Tichy: The Importance of Consistency

Re: What's the Hardest Position to Fill in a Band?

In Nashville, there are keyboard player whom you never meet because they are in their house, constantly editing music post-production. It's isn't worth their time to go out and sit in, network and...

Re: What's the Hardest Position to Fill in a Band?

Cover band especially - you're looking for someone to play all of the trademark licks of songs so that the songs will be familiar to the audience. I have a hard time finding players who can grasp...

Re: What's the Hardest Position to Fill in a Band?

My initial, “shoot-from-the-hip” reaction is usually finding a lead vocalist because singers are usually born and not made. What I mean by this is that an Ann Wilson or a Steve Perry was not taught...
