In my first and most serious band we broke up after College.

It was bummer. All 3 of us lived in a house together and met at art school. I put up a notice my first week looking for a drummer and he ended up being a great friend. We played clubs and had parties, wrote songs, just loved it. Then when we graduated we all got jobs and GFs and it stayed together for a year or so. Sad. Now I live thousands of miles from there.

I never really had a band that did anything. In high school, me and a few friends messed around with forming a band. We even met a few times, and gave ourselves a name (which I've since taken, since I wrote most of the song material). As a result, "Insane Funeral" is now my solo project. I've finally decided to stop sitting on my ass with all the songs I have and actually do some DIY recording.

Drummer spent more time at Drumline than in practice, and the singer let his girlfriend make his schedule for him.

We always had trouble with band members. Drummers are completely nonexistent in the area, and college started, so we all got caught up in that shit. Besides, we were all of different skill levels and we just flat-out sucked and had little to no chemistry as bandmates.

We're still good chums, however.

Know that feeling....

Last one was a Cover Band in Las Vegas. It broke up because I had to serve my country in Charlottesville VA of all places....
They kept going for a few practices, but they all quit within a month.
The shitty part was, despite feeling sad about it for them....I felt this ego-maniacal twang of pleasure that I was THAT important to them that we could go strong for 8 months, and then it falls apart when I leave

Current one is great, except that we don't have a Real lead guitarist nor a bassist.
We sound like a mix of LoG, Machine Head, a touch of Hatebreed, and a pinch of Slayer and we already have 9 original songs in 4 months.

The band I had with a bunch of my college buddies just parted ways.

One got married and moved away, while another moved away for an internship. Someone joined the military, and me and the other both left for different places to finish school.

We still keep in touch though, and we'll most likely get together and jam if we're ever all in the same city at once.
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
I had the blankest year,
I watched life
turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

Rhythm Guitarist was a jerk... Made shit up about me. Told him to shove it basically after the 5th time and the band never had a practice again after that, being the only bassist they knew. Felt like a ego heavy jerk for a while too

No one had time for practice, we didn't get a second PA system after our first one broke, no one was dedicated enough to finish writing songs after someone brought in an idea or something...

There were several reasons leading towards our bands demise. First and foremost I'd say that our singer didn't actually like any of our music, so f*ck if I know why he even wanted to stay in the band. He hardly ever showed up to rehearsal. We had trouble getting everybody together every week, a lot of time only two or three of us would be there.

We had a lot of sound issues, but I don't think that directly caused us to break up, it just made us less motivated, because we knew no matter what we did, it would just kinda sound like crap. (It wasn't the songs, it was just our gear mostly.)

We had some ego trouble. I was the "Every song needs 3 guitar solos" lead guitarist, our bassist would always turn up his amp so that he was the loudest, and he only shreds on the bass, even if its an acoustic ballad. (Several years later he's still barely getting over that.) Our drummer always played as loud as physically possible, which was really only a problem at gigs. And our singer didn't like the parts I wrote for him, but refused to write his own because he didn't like the music. The only one who didn't have a problem was our rhythm guitarist, but sometimes he would just refuse to play.

The final nail in the coffin was our drummer moving to Pennsylvania, but really we hadn't played for half a year when he left. That just keeps us from getting back together, because I think we've all matured a lot now.

The bassist, drummer, and rhythm guitarist were all stoners. The lead guitarist hated drugs. Now the lead and,rhythm guitarist are writing 80's glam.rock

No band I was in really broke up, but I left the first band I was in because I eventually lost interest in the style of music, and no one really let me get a say in anything musically. That shit got old fast.

The vocalist and I (the lead guitarist) moved across the state in opposite directions to go to college. We decided to end the band since we'd never get to practice more than like 5 times in 4 months and we lacked that amount of obsessive compulsive ambition.

Basically college. That was all it was.

We had the same problem with our bassist, except for we needed him to tune to drop E. We now play without a bass guitar in our music.
