Alternate Energy broke up in August. Greg and I started talking about the new project within 2 weeks. Essentially, after developing a sort of manifesto, I built the band. Greg co-authored all the major decisons, but I took all the pro-active steps to pull the band otgether. I advertised and found all the players, set up and conducted all the initial interviews and try-outs, planned all the practices, picked most of the songs, set the agenda as far as how to proceed and what pace to keep...

I plan all practices, and follow up with evaluation emails the next day after each practice. I keep track of all the guys, and am the one with all the answrs, it seems. I made apoint of stessing the democratic status of the band the whole way, Chaz, but as time has progressed, the band has become "my" band, and the players all look to me when something has to be decided. Recently our bassist went lame on us, and he needed a stiff kick in the ass. Although I would not choose myself as the best person for such a task (I have an innate ability to promote the worst reactions in people in these kinds of situations) I managed to get the message across, and he showed up this past Tuesday and played tighter than he had in weeks.

And now I am leaving in a month, for Florida, and a new home. The band has threatened each week to kidnap me and prevent me from leaving Texas.

What it all boils down to for me is two things. One; I really, sincerely love these guys, and that is a big part of what it ought to be like if you do this at all. My drummer Greg, and his wife Sherri, both players, are mine and Laura's best friends in Texas. It breaks our hearts terribly to leave them. Sherri tells me Greg is as broke up about my leaving as he has ever been about anything or anyone since she has been with him. Two; if you want something done right, do it yourself.

A lesson I will never forget again, as long as I can still be in a band at all.
