definitely not bitter! didn't mean to sound that way. i don't think i deserve anything because of my bass playing, but i think my bandmates deserve all the success in the world, because they're awesome as hell!
It's cool as hell and that you are in here replying, but I have to agree with the guy.
I don't know you, or your band, but this whole thing sounds very narcissistic.
I know to you playing bass in a band might not seem very cool anymore, but some kids wish they could be in your position.
