The time for submitting audition tapes if over, and Machine Head are now entering the second phase in their quest for a fresh bassist: final auditions.
The band is presently whittling down its list of candidates, they’ve reported.
“We will now begin the process of having our top picks come down and jam with us in person, and get a feel for each other, both musically and on a personal level,” the band writes.
I wouldn’t care if I didn’t get the job; the chance to jam just once with a band like that alone would be fucking awesome.
“We have posted this reply on our websites as many submissions came via YouTube with no way for us to reply to them directly, so in order for all people to see it we felt this was the most effective.
“On a final note, many of the men and women who sent in YouTube clips performing, did so with the utmost passion and intensity, but of all the submissions, this man deserves a special mention. He learned and played not only the hardest song of the submission ‘This Is The End,’ but played it with only ONE HAND. It moved some of us to tears, it took a lot of heart to do this, cheers Frank Memolo.”
Frank Memolo sounds like he’s awesome. I hope they give dude a chance to audition.
