Title says all..But whats the best way without hurting his feeling or taking it personally? Reasons why is because he wants to take over in making my band an emo lyric/punk band when we're completly different and the fact he has crap gear. And the fact he is using our band space to talk **** to other people we're associated with which is a bad thing for my drummer and I.

Suggestions?
Fender 72' Thinline Telecaster
Fender 72' Telecaster Custom Deluxe
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

It's obvious I don't like fender at all

+ 1 to awaken.

If he's a good friend it sucks. But if he isn't "sorry, different directions...bye bye"

tell him straight. Dont b.s him. Its far more lame to find out your self rather than someone telling you. Have some one ready in mind to replace him. But dont actually have them come play till he is gone, and Dont try and butter it up if he is hurting your career then you shouldnt have to keep that. It shouldnt hurt his feelings too bad...

Without hurting his feeling? Thats hardly any fun, but you have two options.
1. Your going a different direction than the band, and i think we need to go our seperate ways.
2. Man! your way to good for this band! I think we are holding you back man, so you should find a band more in tune with your skill level, i just hope we get there one day.
My way:
You suck balls and your gear is crap. your playing sounds like a lion trying to play a violin, get your **** and get the hell out of my site, before i beat your ass with you guitar!

He can't be that good of a friend if he's doing something like that. Call him up and tell him he's history.

Kick yourself and every other member of the band EXCEPT HIM out. Then steal the original band name and form completely new band.

EDIT: Isn't this pretty much what Axl Rose did? Except with himself...

call him up tell him that maybe this isn't what he should be doing, help him find other things that he can fill in with what hes loosing.
