Most of the Pants keep a low profile these days. Most of them have jobs, and most of them aren't very exciting.
The Pants are a large band - we have 6 people in the band, not including our various handlers, techs, roadies, managers, etc. As a result, frequently we are short one member. Sometimes we can get by, sometimes not. Nemo was out of town over the weekend and that meant I had to pick up the bass duties.
I have never been much of a bass player to begin with. On top of that, these songs were written a long time ago and I didn't even write many of the bass parts. Long story short: My fingers hurt today.
That said, I did a half-decent job of playing bass and singing at the same time. Maybe it's time for a Sid solo album...
