Respect and professionalism is a must in a guest situation, or even in an open jam. Some got it and some don't, what can I say?

Anyway, they liked it and kept inviting me to play, many nights having me up on stage during pretty much all of their 3 sets. An excellent guitar player started playing also (prior to that they were just 3 piece: drums, bass/singer, and keys). They eventually asked the guitarist to join the band. He is a great player, can play blues, jazz, Hendrix, pretty much anything he wants, and is not a bad singer too, and has a song list a mile long!

But for some reason, I would occasionally get applause after a solo while the song was still ongoing (whereas I don't recall any of the band getting that, ever), and people would come up to me during the break and praise my playing and give me more attention than the other guys. And I wasn't even a member of the band. I think maybe that was one reason they sort of cut me back after a while, and in fact really cut back on any other "guests" sitting in. I don't think it was jealousy at all, just that they wanted to focus on promoting the band, which was totally cool with me. I was just grateful for all the stage time they gave me, a harper less than two years. It was great experience for me.

Which reminds me of a thing Andy (Stumblin) said at a gig I went to see him at, when he said playing harp when I'm around made him feel like Emmet ray playing in front of Django Reinhart. Cheers for that Andy, made my night.

Jeez, you weren't kidding about this big-head syndrome thing...

Bytheway, I was working on a car lot today and had reunions with guys from back as far as 14 years when I painted car windshields. I have spent many many hours on car and rv lots painting and talking to the guys. The GM at this lot I have worked with over the years at different companies. Nothing like painting windshields in 105 degrees on the asphalt all day. It was fun, though, looking back.
