    All Time Worst Career Moves

    What are some of the worst career moves made by budding musicians during an ill advised moment of "clarity"? Here are a few examples:

    Pete Best (original Beatles drummer) "This Mersey Beat thing is a fad in the pan. I think I want to quit and go back to playing Skiffle in tea rooms. That is where the future is"

    John Rutsey (origninal drummer for Rush) "This band is going nowhere fast, I think I will quit and become a competitive body builder."

    Andrew Ridgely (co-founder of Wham!) "Who needs that bloody George Michael. I am the one who draws the crowds. I am so outta here"

    How about some others?

    Well Gwen's brother went to hmm... do something for the Simpsons so he's probably doing well as well.

    Not to mention, he's Gwen's BROTHER so that's a lot to brag about.

    Nick Carter?

    I have one that is not necessarily a bad career move, but more of a question of luck. The band silverchair had originally a fourth member, but the guy moved away from Australia for one year. In the meantime, they other band members won a contest which made them famous with the song "Tomorrow." The guy, is name is Tobin, returned after a year only to find out that his band mates already found fame and they actually didn't need him so much anymore.

    How about Aaron Carter trying to act old and also him between Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan. Also, the Sugababes had one member left before Heidi joined them.

    I forgot about Siobhan, she went solo and released some decent music but it never charted high enough and I think she got dropped by her label.

    Mariah Carey and Glitter, need I say more!

    Madonna and her "Swept Away" movie
    Britney Spears and her "Crossroads" movie
