so, my bassist decides to kick me out of the band.
Reasons:
  • i need a job
  • i have barely enough money to get me to practices
  • i have a girlfriend


This person never offered gas money when I would take him back and forth from my place to his. I fed him on a few occasions because he was broke, and he doesn't have a car or anything.
He always said he liked the stuff I wrote and I mean, I'm not horrible on guitar but I could use some improvement. I don't really understand why he got rid of me. OH, and also he scheduled shows without letting me know. That kinda ticked me off. Especially when I created the band in the first place.

Now I know that it would just be lame and childish to try to take revenge, so I'm really not trying for that. Afterall...it was probably childish for me to make a thread about this. But putting all this aside, how probable is it that his band would make it really big and become famous? Furthermore, what are the chances of my band (when and if I get one together) doing the same?

You can be as honest as you want, but don't call me a crybaby or a a whiner or anything because I could honestly care a whole lot less. Im just curious as to how far they might go. Please answer honestly. thanks

I'd say somewhere in between. He has some good reasons. Get off your lazy ass and get a job.

But still, he needs to remember what you did for him.

You let your bassist push you around? Come on man, that's like getting picked on by a little girl.

But you should get a job, and get some cash on you and I guess call Mr. Bassist back up or start fresh by forming a new band.

why is it that the majority of americans cant use this phrase properly? It's I couldnt care less or i could not care less meaning you dont give a damn and you couldnt give any less of a damn because your at the treshold of damn giving.

not i could care less which implies you care about the injustice youve suffered.

anyway to stay on topic, hes a bassist he cant kick people out of bands.

Pretend to be your roommate, and get a job as a substitute teacher at a private school. With any luck, you'll get a super talented class that just needs to be educated in rock. Then you can play the big battle of the bands! You'll probably lose to your old band though

You couldn't care less, that's what you mean.

I say just let it go get a job make some money buy better stuff get better and then show him by being more successful. That's about the only mature revenge you can get.

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.

haha same thing happened to me...I brought the drummer and bass player to a rhythm guitar player and he kicked me out.

So...I just got everyone that I brought to leave that band and come with me...

and wtf is up with the girlfriend thing? We all know bassists can't get the action guitarists can, but unless your girl is a total douche and ****s up practice, I don't get it.

I'm American, I say it properly and I rarely hear people say "could care less." Just because a couple people on the web say it like that doesn't mean that the majority of America does.

On topic: The chance that you, or your bass player will become famous isn't very high so don't sweat it. As for his complaints, it depends. If your lack of income is really keeping you from doing your part then I think he had the right to do what he did (although I would have talked to you first, which he may or may not have done).

well, i forgot to mention he was also the lead vocalist. But still, his voice sounded like the default ringtone on a cell phone. Regardless, I know he shouldn't have kicked me out and I should've kicked him out. Regardless, I'm going to be getting a job anyways because I need to go to college. so I was thinking about quitting the band anyways...but he just beat me to getting rid of me (if that makes sense). I am planning on forming a new band at some point in the future, but it will not be with the original bassist.

I've read something like this somewhere... I think some guy got thrown out of a band that went on to be one of the greatest selling metal bands of all time. Don't worry about that guy though, he also had his share of success.

Anyway, I seriously wish you luck on whatever happens. I guess it just depends on how talented the band is. If they write good music and you can see it being very popular then they may have what it takes to get big.

Because you have a girlfriend? Thats stupid.

Wait a sec. Are you already kicked out or not? If not, you need to tell him who's boss. But then after that he'll probably hate you and leave anyway....
#33
Nope, completely retarded reasons to kick you out, unless having a girlfriend and no job were somehow harming the band.

And if you're the founding member that just makes it worse. You have every reason to be pissed off at him.

Anyways, just start a new band. If the other bandmembers didn't help you out then they're probably not worth your time. Go get a job and start a new band.

Definately immature.
He obviously doesn't know that it's traditional for musicians to be unemployed while they are finding their feet, (hey, how else are you gonna put in eight hours a day practice?) then self employed as a musician once they know what they're doing.
As for the girlfriend thing. WTF??? Things would be pretty bad if every band threw out any members that have girlfriends, is she his ex or something?
The first thing that everyone should learn about being in a band is that everyone in that band sticks together and looks after each other, like a family, through thick and thin. So you're a bit skint at the moment? So was he once and you didn't kick him out at the time did you?
Honestly, this guy's going nowhere with an attitude like that, but I can't honestly comment on your own chances without knowing you.

He kicked you out because he's jelous that you have a girlfriend and he doesn't.
