This kid in my school, let's just call him Phil, had his parents pull some strings to get him into the school band 2 years after the deadline(!), so he is of course, way behind in his musical studies.

He joined the percussion group and thinks that he suddenly can play the drumset like a pro. He knows I play the guitar and keeps asking me to join his "band" as rhythm guitar. Before I tell you the rest, let me explain the reason of the quotes,

Phil, as the drummer
Some kid, who plays no instrument as lead guitar
a group of girls I don't know as:
Video recorder(!)
Producer(!)
UNIFORM STYLIST(!!!)
Backup singers(with no lead)
and a Record-deal-finder

Every day, he keeps asking me and I just wanna say "NO! YOU ARENT IN A ****ING BAND! I HAVE BEEEN PLAYING FOR YEARS, AND YOUR BAND HAS BEEN PRETENDING TO KNOW HOW TO PLAY FOR 2 MONTHS! GET OUT OF MY FACE", but I just say "I'll think about it.

Can somone give me an idea of how to refuse him and make him stop with the whole band thing untill he is more musicaly honed. I don't want to break anybody's dreams, be he seriously was about to sign up for battle of the bands, and I didn't want him to have to stand up on stage, no instruments or music, then say "I don't have a band".
I like this kid as a person so I need to make sure it doesn't hurt his feelings too much.

grow a pair and say no. You don't have to say **** off and die you're not in a band, just say no. If he persists, you can rage on him.

Just say no that you arent wanting to be in a band right now.

Just say, "Naw man, I don't wanna be in a band right now, and I doubt you play the genre I play, so, sorry."
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

Tell him you're gay.
I've found that in many situations, that gets all sorts of people off my back for various things.

Alternatively, tell him you're selfish and you'd want all the attention and all the major decision making responsibilities and you're nothing more than an anal richard potatoe (dick-tater, get it?) and he wouldn't like you anyway.

Tell him the truth. You don't have to be mean about it. Tell him that you think he needs more work before he should think about starting a band. You don't have to crush him, but you could support him alittle bit and try to help him out.

Pretty much, this. You can let him down easy while explaining that he needs more experience.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

If you can't say no to some kids band how are you gonna say no to sex, drugs, and alchohal.
Just say yes because like sex, drugs, and alchohal, good things can come from this. I've seen crap bands go into clubs with only one good member. At the end of the night I see the superior member telling his band he got an offer from a better band and he's leaving.
