I got Recruited into a prog metal thingy (Savatage oriented but in general rock/metal covers) back in the late 1990s while I was fooling around on a big workstation at the local Sam Ashhole. (I honestly do not remember the exact date.) I was the nerdy guy in a band of metalheadz. Gig photos, I may have, but I'd have to dig through a box of archaic CD-Roms.

This lasted a couple years, but not after college. After college, I was bandless and also not looking (I Haz a Day Job, I'm Doing Alright) until I joined a cover band in 2001 dedicated to 80s music stuff. Later (2004) I also joining the punk band that the drummer and bass player also were in. At one point I was also in a third New Wave type band but that didn't last long. The cover band also has fallen apart. Oh well.

I am now in only one band and that is enough. The pitiful band pay for your standard original band has not indexed well with the cost of inflation, meaning the band drama to band pay ratio has gotten worse over time.

I played at church in the mid 80s, but no monies, so I guess that's not a gig?

First paid gig was at a bar where we played every Friday probably for a year or so. Pay was very small but I guess it was a gig. We played for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours and half were originals and half were covers. Pink Floyd, U2, Scorpions, Kiss, and some Brazilian rock bands that were successful at that time were always in the play list. We also always did one blues improv every night.
