So my rhythm guitarist recently got a girlfriend, and all they do is suck face all day. He's slowly starting to lose interest in the band. He's starting to cancel band stuff to be with her, and i'm worried that this will lead to our downfall.

Is this normal?
#2
Kill her, its the only way.

Edit:

On a serious note, every band Ive been in or had friends in with girlfriends, the band suffered for it. They didnt all break up, they just.. suffered.

Normal as in it happens to a lot of people, yes.

Be like "Yo, if you want in the band, you have to come to practice, otherwise you get the boot, mafugga. We don't need your rhythming ass anyways."

Tell him and his gf to come to practice...or tell him tell his gf he has to practice, I think she'll understand
#13
yeh if he is ur rythm guitarest he should be easy to replace if you have to chuck him, but i no the feeling, you will wanna keep him probs.
i would say just like causaly bring up the topic of him not coming to band and stuff and that his girlfriend cancels on him to go see her m8s, or so she should, so he shouldnt be pussyed about saying know once and a while when he is asked to do someting with her when you have band on, fucing hate guys who like say " oh yeh im gonna do this with u" and then like some girl is liek " wana ****" and he like " yeh man i cant wait 2 hours to fuc her" and your like " man fuc her after practise, or during pratcise i dont care!"

Bros before hoes is a statement only made by chavs and similar idiots. Your Lady is your best friend, always remember that. Putting someone else before her does not do her justice.
I hope the grammar was not too bad, I am not a native speaker.

EDIT: meh, I just red your post, Ts. Just wait a little, your guitarist should be back to normal in a couple of weeks. It is normal for him to be obsessed with her for a while.

SPOILER: This belongs in the bandleading forum, to be honest.

Maybe I'll feel that way when I'm married.

oh dear...

are you even sure she's a girl man?

xD
#31
i dont really get how he can spend ALL of his time w/ her, he needs to sort out his priorities and can hang with her at times other than practice, because its not like you guys pra tice 24 hours a day, so he can just hang with her when your not practicing
tell him that

sounds like he doesn't need a band, he already has a girl.

yep, it all comes down to this. Try to be somewhat understanding, but make clear that he should be able to hang around with his girl AND come to practice. If others can do that, he surely can too.

Bros before hoes! Its more difficult to say that when you got a girlfriend, but really, girls are only temperary, bros are for life!
NO ONE EVER READS MY POSTS.

Uhm.. it's a rhythm guitarist.. those are easy to replace.
Just tell him he has to show up at practice or you'll boot him.
If he doesn't show up, don't sweat it and just get another guitarist.

**** bros before hoes, girls are better than any "bro". Who wants to be friends with somebody who listens to Dave Matthews and plays gamecube with their pants off anyway? On a more serious not the bros before hoes rule is stupid.
