Why did your band breakup?

It's tough keeping a band together. There are reasons why?

Let's start a list of reasons and see if we can learn how to avoid these issues in our next band.

I'll start...

1. The lead singer was a jerk

2. We all weren't at the same skill level

My last band broke up because we sucked.

My current band is still going and is fun.

Nobody was really into sodomy. You would think a common indifference would hold people together, but nope.

No gigs, sex, drugs, the usual.

Damn groupies, loved them, got IN THE WAY.

and then it evolved and mutated slowly then quickly into hangers on and shit and just random people and their GFs and who ever, and all that drugs, it's like a mind **** just thinking about it.

Good ol' Scream Studios.

We broke up because our agent convinced our front man he was better off without us. So he left us and went on to become a successful solo artist.

The singer was into pop, the other guitarist was a grunge man, the bassist just sat on top of his amp all the time, I was into rock and the drummer just did whatever the **** he wanted.

No one was motivated to do anything with it after we lost our space to rehearse. It kinda all fell apart before we even began to go anywhere.

We never made it past the writing stage and, couldn't decide much on the covers, I think we got one, and I had to learn it, but I did and we played it (with my drummer, of course). - Manson's Sweet Dreams.

I was the egomaniac-istic solo guitarist.
And drummer couldn't count to 8.

Can any of em?

But seriously I have massive respect for good drummers, but if a drummer isn't pretty good, he probably sucks. There rarely seems to be an inbetween.

Singer decided to change the bands genre from being a thrash metal to a southern rock genre, needless to say since we are from new jersey that didn't go well....

I got really drunk and was kicked out of the venue we were supposed to play, this eventually led to us just giving up... still really good friends with them all except the singer, we never really liked him.

The bassist/singer was always late for rehersals and was an egomaniac
The lead guitarist discovered he had stage 4 lung cancer.
The drummer was always too drunk and high to even keep a beat.
Some of the practices were fun but never really productive.

Drummer was shit and we had conflicting musical tastes, we're all still mates though and are now living in the same house so we may give it another shot
