I saw an ad on facebook. A local guy wanted a guitarist, bass player, and drummer for a recording gig. Didn't say what kind of music or any details. I hopped over to the guy's profile, and saw nothing music-related aside from a super brief status update that he was working on an album. I was curious, so I messaged him. He got back to me right away, saying he was only willing to accept top notch musicians. After some ten to fifteen minutes of conversing, most of that time me painfully trying to extract information, it got hilarious. So the highlight of this was that the guy wasn't even going to be involved in the music side of it at all. He wanted to hire musicians to write and record everything themselves, and he was just going to mix the songs. Musicians would neither be paid nor credited in writing and were also required to promise to drop everything and tour (also for zero compensation, mind you), if the album was a success (vaguely defined). This guy, being that it was "his idea," would take sole writing credit and absorb any profit. I politely declined and then he started getting all "why will no one will help me..." and I stopped responding. I suppose I could have pointed out that he was demanding a ton of work and offering literally nothing in return, but I assume this guy was either really honest and yet unreasonable or was just trolling me. Anyone else run into anything as extreme as that?
