Alright so it was last week were we started out with five people. we had two guitarist, a bassist, a drummer, and a singer. We were going to perform for our 8th grade ceremony infront of some 400 people. Our song of choice was "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica. We learned the song and we had to practise the song together but the band teacher and my school was being gay and wouldn't let us use his room or his drum set...And this is were it gets bad...we found out our bassist didn't even learn the song at all because he is just lazy....and we had like 4 days left before the ceremony so we just kicked him out. Then it was down to four of us. The next day..our Rythm guitarist got grounded for getting in a fight at his hockey game so his parents grounded him and took away his guitar and said he can't perform at the ceremony. Now its down to three. WE couldn't play "Nothing Else Matters" because i need a rythm guitarist so we had to choose another song. Our singer wanted to do "Hypnotize" by System of a Down but we only had two days before the ceremony and our drummer couldn't learn it because he said it had some random beats. So me and my drummer decided to play "Paralyzer" by Finger 11. He already knew how to play it and i had one day to get it right. I learned how to play the song and i was ready...but then...our singer said he couldn't sin "Paralyzer" so he had to drop out. So then it was down to two of us. Me and my drummer... My drummer came to my house a day before the two days before the ceremony and we practiced "Paralyzer" It took us 7 tries to get it right when we play together. Then we were ready. Yesterday was sound check for the auditorium but my drummer couldn't be there. So i was the only one there. Then amazingly i got heat stroke yesterday!!! so i was in bed for like two hours feeling hot and frozen at the same time! and I said that i couldn't peform for the ceremony. but then i got better this morning. Then today was the ceremony and we got screwed big time. we were the first to perform and I didn't have a pick wiht me!! we had everything but one pick!!!so we couldn't play so my dad left to go home and bring back like 7 picks. They said we could go last. Me and my drummer were backstage the whole time. Then we had to perform.. We set up everything on stage and when i was going to turn on my amp...it dies on me...infront of 455 people!!! It turned on for 5 sec and then i heard this weird noise and the amp dies...so we couldn't do it....me and my drummer missed the whole ceremony becuase we were backstage and we missed everything! I was pissed. and I jsut kept away from all my friends and im going to highschool and I didn't saygoodbye. we're all going to a diffrent highschools...so now i feel like crap. So tell me on the scale of 1 to 10. How screwed were we?
