My dad taught me to play bass. Hes a bass player; he still plays in a band in Michigan to this day. He taught me to play bass when I was about 6. I used to just go to band practice with him, and whoever didnt show up for rehearsal that day, I would take their spot.

If I had to name one thing that probably causes more conflict within the band, its probably the fact that Im the girl, and it takes much longer with hair and makeup and wardrobe. But theyve gotten used to it. Its one of those things I think they realize that when they say shell be ready in 10 minutes, it normally means 15 or 20.
