Why Musicians Don't go to Other Musician's Gigs

Discussing the often asked question as to why musicians rarely go to other musician's gigs the best answer we came up with was that they don't want to let the guys playing the gig know that they don't have a gig that night!

Or on a rare night off the last thing they want to do is go out to a gig. Certainly that's my personal experience.

I do occasionally get to gigs (I have you as a witness to that Lance!) but because work takes me out so often in the evenings, nights off are more likely to be spent (like tonight) watching Dr Who with the kids!
