We had a 4 piece punk band in which I sung and played rhythm.
Our lead guitarrist has near enough constantly let us down for nearly a year now
He's never learned a song in advance for us, we've always had to teach him during practise - which costs lots
He just improvises solo's not very well rather than learning the right ones
He missed like 20 practises
He's told us we have gigs but we don't really several times
Our drummer left so he got his girlfriend, who's been drumming for like 1 month to drum for us, she's like really bad
We got a new guitarrist and drummer but didn't tell him
Been going for about 4 weeks like this now
Earlier today he rung the bass player saying he got us a gig this friday
But its genuine this time
He's teaching his girlfriend all the songs this thursday
Wtf like?!
Worst of all his entire family and his girlfriends family will be coming and watching
Im really not sure what to do now
Worst of all he has a fake gibson les paul, but made to look like a real gibson, but its not very good at all.
I know . . .
Any advice

Note: i've already noted swift kick, fly kick, high kick, sack tap, punch in the head, bitch slap, pimp slap, he man bitch slap, stealing his girlfriend etc

set him on fire while he sleeps, but squirt some sunscreen onto his chest in a smiley face so when the people come to take his body away they laugh a little

Wow...thats sucks. As long as the songs your learning aren't that hard, you should be able to pull it off half decently...

Do the gig. Or... take a vote among the other band members, but don't include the other drummer and guitarist, because they don't count. I suppose that just leaves you and the bassist. So talk to the bassist, and figure it out like that. You don't really need to vote, then.

lol that seems like the least of your worries.

just be like "dude, shape up or ship out." meaning give him X amount of days to get better and correct his bad habits (do make sure you arent exagerating) or hes out. and also tell him that his girlfriend, while you do enjoy her company (you can lie about that) is not yet experienced enough to be in a gigging band.

Facepalm?

But really, play the show, let his family see how horrid they are, and kick them right before they leave.

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

punk? lead? talent? knowledge of instruments? you're going against everything punk stands for mannnn
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

that sux, just tell him the truth, no need to keep the lie up
i know what you mean with teaching him during practice, iv had to do that with another guitarist before, wasted valuable time

edit: or if ur a pussy and don't have the balls to tell the guitarist and his gf the truth, i agree with the guy who said to "quit" and reform with the bassist and other secret band members

play the gig with the original lineup ( the one with the GF drumming ) then tell him the band is over.

Then start up the new band.

Problem solved.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

Help me to live.

^I think you miss the point, Icy Hot is considered spam, which = banz.

Oops. I just face palmed myself.

I'd just let him go softly then if he resists tell him that he suck at life and the highway is a great place to sunbaithe.
