Getting kicked out of a band

So I just got kicked out of my first band

They said my playing style was more for heavier music, as they were writing 80's glam rock style music, and I write stuff more along the lines of Dream Theater and Dance Gavin Dance.

What are some bands you have been kicked out of and why?


EDIT: I should probably say that I didn't leave under bad terms, we were all really chill with each other during practice, I just didn't have any motivation to write 4-chord rock songs

I've never been kicked out, but I left a previous band on good terms. Both of us really didn't think it would work out with me. Mainly due to scheduling issues and me only being free when they weren't

However, I am contemplating kicking out the second guitarist in the other band I am in because he is a gigantic crybaby and has the polar opposite music taste as everyone else. He is also one of the most negative, anti social people I have ever met in my life.

Never been kicked out, although our old bassist gave us some bullshit 'need to concentrate on my schoolwork' excuse to leave our band. Then went and joined another band straight away. What made it worse was:
1- We were good friends with the other band
2- I had been great friends with the bassist for over 10 years and he couldn't even give us the decency to tell us why he was leaving

It all worked out in the end though, got a good mate on bass now

don't get butt hurt. That basically is what happened with our old guitarist. Every once else said we should kick him out, and I was the one to tell him, and now I'm the only one he doesn't talk to.

That said, a girl was involved. That changes things for sure.

Never been kicked out. I've left a few bands amicably because we we're all mature enough to understand and move on.

I too, have never been kicked out. Though I have left a band because of our drummer's attitude when it comes to learning new things and general playing skills. It was a 3 piece band, and my father did lead guitar and vocals. I was just filling in the bass position for him, so when he didn't want to work with him anymore, he just stopped going, so I didn't have much of a choice in the matter. The drummer also had all the pro equipment, so that ended that.

Never been kicked out, but I've left and kicked others out. Sometimes you have to look past that fact that you're (probably) pretty good friends with them if they're bringing everything down. And not necessarily skills-wise.

Never been kicked out but I left a band that I felt was giving me the cold shoulder. No biggie though, I was basically a fill-in so they could play shows; I had no creative input.

My funk/jam group recently disbanded though. That sucked.

Why would you do this?
You could just leave... No need to bring out the passive aggressive bullshit.

Kicked out of one once, one dissolved, I'm the only member of my current project, so it'd be really sad if I got kicked out.

You okay?

I've never been kicked out of one. My old band went through a name change and a couple line-up shuffles, but I was always on guitar and vocals, and my friend Chris was always on bass and vocals. The drummer changed once and we got a second guitarist later on. The band broke when the bassist and other guitarist started fighting

My current band however hasn't practiced in about 3 months or something
