Well, this is something I always wanted to do, playing in a band. I played a few times with others, I like to bring new ideas, I am able to tell that I play quit good, but as a loner, and it is never to late to start playing in a band. What kind of music do you play? I love almost everything, I did not say that I am able to play almost everything, but I have good basics, I can play at least 30 different chords, probably more, but the problem is that I live near Brussels (capital of Europe) in Belgium.
You can make it international, concerning the members, and sh**, sh**, sh**, I was accepted last year, speaking of Valentine's day, on the 14th of february 2006, to be Senior Officer, and Captain on a cruise ship, Carnival Cruise Lines, as medical doctor. But on a blue monday I got the news: send us again a CV, AFTER those guys told me that I was the best candidate since 20 years: graduated as MD in 1980, so a lot of experience, speaking fluent: DUTCH, GERMAN, FRENCH, ENGLISH, and my Italian is really not bad. I answer, just to tell my feelings. I read a lot of things you write here, and I even have the impression of knowing you, but.. how can I stay in the USA, last year I was promised to get a green card, because of the promised job, finally cancelled because of my condition: a lot of physical problems due to a car crash, also the reason that, it happened on 09/02/2000, starting again in the summer 07/02/2001, against doctor's decisions, and finally I had to stop because of too much pain (I lost conscience at least 10 times), caused by the heavy pain. They had the right to contact my collegues, a neurosurgeon, and an orthopedic doctor, and I am very sure they did, because I started to get mails: there might be some medical issues...so, no green card, no USA.
Do you play as a professional, or do you combine working & playing. If I was able to go and stay in the USA, I receive a lot of money being over insured, every month, and I still like to leave everything behind to move to your country. Do you know more about this issue? Do you need somebody, or something to be accepted (not for work, I can't work no longer because when I do too much, I can't stand the pain). I mean somebody, who tells me how I can get a green card.
In fact this is not an answer at all for your band, but I just wanted to know how to get there, and start playing. I still have a lot of regrets that I didn't say YES when DAVE GROHL (Foo Fighters, and Nirvana) invited me on a popfestival, to call him (private), he would pick me up, and the plans where to go to a studio in Seattle, jamming together, maybe recording a few things, going to visit his musician friends, REM, Smashin' Pumpkins, even Neil Young. This is still the biggest deception I ever had, and I am always thinking that I blew away a once in a lifetime opportunity, and he was one of the guys who liked what I played. Problem was, I had my MD job, and I was just back and working again 6 weeks, because I went to South Africa in 1996 with my girlfriend. I deserve a severe punishment for not going. Strange how things can go
