No -> Re: The Magical Hystery Tour - chapter 21 (Reg explains the psychological profile .....
I agree with Les that there are likely many reasons guitarists leave bands. Artistic, creative types in general tend to be mercurial and full of themselves (who, me?! ;-)...), and if they were not, they/we would not have so much to draw on from which to create. Change and sometimes conflict are in the nature of things, whether introverted, etc., or not. Take Yngwie Malmsteen's career, for example, heh. Spectacular talents of any personality feel entitled to do whatever, whenever and with whomever (or not) they must, to manifest their talents and find artistic fulfillment and success as they define it. I'd be curious to see more of your rationale, Reg. We're both from academic circles...no need for anyone to have a falling out over extended discussion, par for the course in said circles, without which in fact they would not exist. But hey, yes, it's your tour... ;-)
Not worth falling out over Reg. It's not the examples I have a problem with, it's the conclusions drawn. I suspect there are many reasons why guitarists leave bands.
Anyway, it's your Hystery Tour and I look forward to discovering where you're taking us.
