I've always been proud of my band and our music. But recently, we're just not getting on well at all. It might be 'coz of the pressure of having a performance soon that we are going to take very seriously, but we just argue the whole time, and our rehearsals and practices are not cheerful and open like they used to be, but new ideas are cut down (not only by the other members, but me included), and we stick to what we already have. So I read this:

and I thought about what I might've been doing wrong. What got me was the #1 thing, the Ego stuff. I realized that I might've been bringing all of us down recently, becuase myself being the frontman, i mightv'e been the most nervous one.
So O Holy PIt, do you have any advice on how to work better together as a band?
Your dreams are all out of focus;
Knock you up when you're feeling down.
And all the world feels so unreal...

You first have to have all band members find it in themselves to change things; only then, can you all make a change together.
When you saw me sleeping
thought I was dreaming
of you...


I didn't tell you
That the only dream
Is Valium for me

Fire the bassist.


And the drummer, just for good measure. In fact, get a new band.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Every practice just take out a gun and place it on your amp. See if the little Bastards try and take your creative control then!

Don't do this if you have a small practice space, because then you might have made it much easier for someone else to take creative control...

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Sorry, how does this relate to the thread?
