Our Bassists mom wont let him practice cuz shes always makin him do chores and when hes not doin chores hes workin.......She's got him whipped. She even had the nerve to make us change our band name because it was "too violent". What would u do in this situation.

^That's what I thought when I saw this thread.....

Kick the bassist out 'til his mother is fine with it.

Why are all of you guys blaming the bassist and telling him to kick him out?? Just tell the bassist to tell his mom that he is going to jam and if she has a fit.. Then his mom is just being a dirty hoe bag..

....i see you guys are really young if u cant cope with ur parents...
1st- i think u have to take ur name back anyway
2nd- why ur bassist wont talk to his mom n explain her that being in the band is very important, that playing music is something indispensable for him....i think she will understand actually if he talks to her or something...
...but honestly i get the feeling that ur bassist doesnt really want to stay in ur band, thats why he isnt dealing with his mom properly....

Were 16 and our band name was originally Black Eyes And Razorblades, but we had to change it so now its A Daydream Letdown.

First of all, I'm guessing the name change isn't totally unreasonable. What's the name? Your parents have fed you, housed you, etc. for 17 years(by your profile). I bet they've paid or helped paid for your gear, etc. Doing something as trivial as changing your name shouldn't be referred to as "having nerve" at all, it's perfectly normal. Just follow along, and when you're out of the house you can name your band whatever the hell you want.

Your bassist needs to learn to deal with his own mom. That's his relationship, and his business. There's nothing you can do about it. He just needs to stick up for himself, and show her that playing music is important to him. And if he can't practice, it's not unreasonable to lose the bassist.

UG + Maturity = A happy place.

I'd suggest kicking him out... His mom controls him, and seemingly the band o.O

you could practise without him, and if you cant notice that he isnt there then boot him cos you dont need him in the first place
#28
lay your pimp hand on his mom. she's obviously trying to stifle all your creativity so eventually her son will have to quit the band and end up selling insurance for the rest of his life

I'd recommend kicking out the bassist, it isn't working try to find a new bassist, most likely the mom won't change, there was this problem with a second guitarist in our band we tried to tell him to stick up for himself but he didn't and we kicked him out until he could resolve the problem, He still hasn't hes like scared to death of his mom

That sucks :/ I had the same problem, mine was like the bassist's though. My family (pretty much everyone) said I couldnt jam with my band cuz I didn't know anyone in it (except one of my best friends, he asked me to join) and "their scumbags"... yeah (and they never seen them before). Then the drummer was being a ass and kicked everyone except him out of the band.

Uh, anyway, yeah I'd kick him out :<. It's not worth having someone in your group that can't jam with you guys. And don't take crap from someone elses mother like that, change your name back If you wanna still. You didn't do anything wrong, I think.
#32
His mom has a "new rule" now that school has started. No company during school nights. Thats it. hes gone unless she changes
#34
change your band's name to "our bassist's mom is a stinking cun t." She'll gladly let you keep the violent emo name.
