Long story short our "lead"guitarist is a talentless, spoiled, fat, lazy, self absorbed asshole and refuses to play unless he writes the lyrics, writes both guitars and bass, and the drums. Today was the breaking point when he carved his name with a razor into the back of his 66' vintage Fender Strat which was bought for him by his mother for the price of $7999 last week after he won a guitar hero tournament. Then to add to the love his uncle dropped by and gave him a Marshall JVM410H stack. We are gigging on Friday and he refuses to practice unless we move his amp across town to the practice base and let him practice with it against our practice amps. How can we get rid of his spoiled ass without ****ing him over. Not to mention he really, really, sucks and insists on playing so loudly over us that even the drums are drowned out.

Kick him out. Be brutally honest, and tell his fake ass to get some real ****ing talent.

He should be able to afford a couple lessons.
#5
get him drunk and wall him into an enclave in the family catacombs. then take the strat and change your name to whatever name he carved into the back.

PS: was it Zugunruhe? if it is you should send it to me. its a popular name among today's youth.

If you haven't tried to address the issue and tell him and make sure he understands what he's doing wrong, do that first.

If you have and he hasn't listened? Fire him.

If you don't have the guts to, just don't tell him about band practices until he quits the band himself.

I'm crying over that strat right now.

FIRE HIM NAO.

Hire a hitman and have himm taken out!!!!!!!!


No, seriously, just be very honest. Don't worry if he gets mad, because I'm pretty sure he will....... Just get the rest of the band together and tell him simply that he is no longer a helpful part of the group, and ask him to leave.

Next time at band practice when he shows up just act like you don't know him.

Guy: "hey guys, sorry I'm late. I had to move this br0tal Marshall"
Band: "who are you?"
Guy: "Haha, stop playing guys. Now lets get to work"
Band: "Seriously, who are you? GTFO!!"
Guy: "guys its me! Lead guitarist, remember?"
Band: "What? we think you might be mistaken, you were never in this band."
Guy: "hmmm. I thought I solved that problem already. Alright sorry guys, I'll leave now"

Tell him what the problems are, don't lie to him and just tell him. He'll get angry, but he's a dead weight and this might even make him a better person in the long run.

Never saw it that way. Very very ****ing true though. Im all for canning his ass but the other band members want to approach it with a bit of sensativity becuase the guy is used to getting his ass kissed by his family. He has a guitar hero complex and thinks that hes the next Hendrix and that anything he writes/ rips off us is pure gold.

Set fire to his Strat.

He won't WANT to be near you after that

Admittedly, setting fire to a 1966 Strat is probably not a wise idea, rich or not.
