    He's really approaching this like a business partnership, not like your typical band arrangement. I guess that's admirable for some things, but for the vast majority of musicians it's a HUGE turn-off.

    Also, some of those provisions are a little bit too invasive for even the most "businesslike" band environment.

    "looks out for the best interests of each other"
    "contacts each member regularly for support and accountability"

    It's a band, not a family.

    Again, just my opinion!
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    holds the right to call ONE unscheduled band meeting every annual quarter
    Why only one, what if something huge comes up and he already used his one unscheduled band meeting for that annual quarter?
