Im in a....well pretty much just a garage band but I(the guitarist),the bassist and the lead singer are commited.But my drummer isnt.Me and the rest of the band want to actually do something while my drummer deosnt even take music seriously.But the problem is im 13 and go to a school where there is pretty much 1 drummer that I know of and thats him.Another problem is that were all really good friends.what should I do?

It would be better not to have a drummer than to have one that couldn't care less about music. Tell him that it has nothing to do with your friendship, but that he can't be in your band if he doesn't take it more seriously.
Get baked, study theory.

exactly

but at the same time im gonna put it out there, your 13 year old garage band probably wont matter in the long run. you'll get to highschool and meet many talented musicians, thats when you want to take things seriously.
i was in my first band when i was your age and i dont even talk to those kids anymore

its a great learning experience. i'm taking my band seriously now, if this was my first band i'd have no idea what to do. but trust me man, when i got to highschool i met so many musicians and started jamming with all different people, it'll be the same for you

Talk to him about it first, tell him that everyone wants to take the band seriously and e needs to shape up
