Hey, well first off, I'll tell you a bit about my band, In Love and Hate. We're a pop/rock band, like we do mostly acousitc stuff. But there's one problem. Our Drummer is a douche who wants us to be Sum 41. He also hates our bassist, but is a good friend to the rest of us, along with the bassist. He wants to pretty much take control of our band. He quit us a while back, but when we started gaining momentum, he begged us to be back in. We agreed, and now regret it. Once, he told us that the bassist quit even though he didn't. Also, a good friend of the band, who is also a much better drummer, would be more than willing to play with us. However, he also does a lot of songwriting, as do I, the frontman. Anyway, do you think we should kick him out? And if we do how can we make him not be pissed at us?


Thanks!

kick out the old drummer, let the new one in and if he's a good songwriter, then let him help with that. no one wants a douche of a drummer.

yea the thing with the old drummer is that for he writes more songs, but half of them suck. Our keyboardist does a little bit of punk writing, too. And I mean like Sex Pistols and sh.it, not Pop Punk-ish Green Day.

Just get the whole band together and say "Look, we're really not happy with the attitude you've got towards the band at the moment. We have other drummers who would be willing to replace you if it came to that so get your shit together or we will replace you"

Or something like that. Give him the one shot after the whole band talk to him, and if he screws up again get rid of him.

Sounds like you should be kicking him out, as for the how to not make him pissed off, I'm pretty bad in that department.

If possible just put up with him until u find a new one, then just tell him "U R THE WEAKEST LINK...GOODBYE!"

I say kick him out. It sounds like no one is very happy with him. You have already given him a chance and he has let you down. You can't have two members of a band who hate each other that is a recipe for disaster. I think the only reason to keep him is because he's a songwriter. But you said half of his songs aren't good and since you and the keyboardist write as well there really isn't that much of a loss.

Edit: Also since you already have a drummer lined up you really aren't losing anything.

But he might want to take his already written songs with him.......

edit- I guess we could have a few Jeff Dirdack covers!

^Well I think how big of an issue that is depends on how many of his songs you play. But why not write new songs instead?

Because two of his songs are in a four-song medley and it all flows pretty good
