Could it be you?
Or you, even?
In all likelihood, no.
But it’s OK. They’re probably going to hire someone with relative renown anyways.
Machine Head have been bassist-less for a spell now and the band’s latest update claims they are still accepting submissions from interested parties through April 19.
They’ll narrow down the field a bit, and then have bassists come in and officially tryout for the gig.
“Machine Head would like to thank all of the people who have submitted YouTube clips so far, we want you all to know that we’ve watched all of your videos, and while there may not have been an initial confirmation/reply that your video was received, we have been going through each of the many submissions one-by-one.”
Can you imagine how time-consuming that must be. And how awful some of the submissions had to have been.
“If you want to submit your clips but have not yet done so, make sure you do before next Friday. Videos can be set to private with the only allowed viewer set to the audition e-mail address ([email protected]), should you choose.
“Remember, you are being asked to play bass AND sing. Anyone who is not also singing in their clips will unfortunately have to be overlooked, so if you’re going through the instrumental effort, give the singing a shot! Thanks to everyone for all of the submissions so far, your time and effort is sincerely appreciated.”
