occupation?

so what do other bass players around the world do for a living, because i know most of us aren't on no world tour or anything like that. i work at a multi-media post production facility. in laymens terms i work where we reproduce cds, cassettes, dvds, cdrs, vhs, etc..... it's pretty cool because we do local music here in houston and around the country, usually nobody real big though. i like it though because it's still part of the music industry. i been here for 13 years now. how bout ya'll?

you guys are really far from where i am located. cool that we can all connect because we enjoy brutal music and music in general. how is the scene where ya'll are. even though houston is the 4th largest city in the US a good turn out on a weekend for a death or black metal show is about 400-600 depending. how bout where you are?

In Germany we have the Wacken festival in Wacken (a small village in the north, near hamburg) every summer. That's the biggest metal event we have here every year.

I work at McDonald's where I get my money for all my equipment. I resently bought a Warwick which took me about 4 months to buy. I'm currently the bassist/vocalist for A Beautiful Corpse.

currently I'm still going to school, but I'm going to apply at a local supermarket soon. For those here who have long hair have you ever been denied a job because of it? Once I got a interview for a assistant teacher position at some camp and this is what they said: you'll only get the job if you cut your hair, I was thinking WTF? those fucking bastards

so your in brazoria huh? yeah that's pretty close. i'll tell you though the only reason the scene sucks in houston is cause people don't support the scene they say they like. i mean i don't make every show but i would consider myself a supporter. i remember when i was young like most of you. man playing music was the only thing i wanted to do. unfortunately it didn't pay very well. i work at a cd, multi media plant where we mass reproduce. it's not cheap either. www.creativesound.com if you would like to check it out.
we're in houston. it's cool working here though. hey the guy who kills people, how does that pay cause i've been looking for better opportunities!

I have worked at Burger King and agree that the job sucks. I'm currently attending university (first year) and decided not to work. I'm going to have to get a job though, damned living expenses!
I play in one band, and fill in for another band (though they haven't done anything, literally, since the few shows we played in summer, half a year ago). The band that I'm 'in' is playing a show next week - our first paid show - but music (obviously) has not been a source of income for me. $80 divided by five members equals $16 a member. We're rich now!
Anyways we're in Winnipeg, which is a small city in Canada of about half a million people. Needless to say, the metal scene here is almost inexistant.

I'm a student...so 'course, I don't have a job. I am forming a band with CC here and we met this dude at our school that has a kick ass BC rich, so we're going to try him out tomorrow during our lunch hour. All we need (if he's in) is a drummer and we'll be set. Soooooo...if we're lucky, we can get some gigs going soon and then bring in minimal pay. (Go jobless teens! )
