I used to be in a 3 piece instrumental band and things were good, but one day our drummer kinda lost interest and left. So I got this kid whose older brother I know to play drums and hes alright. But his older brother kinda squeezed his way into our project because hes always around when we practice and really wants to be in a band. The kid is really nice but annoying as **** and I want him out but I still need his little brother to play drums. Ideas?

Will his brother leave if you kick the kid out? If yes your F^cked, if no then just tell him that you would rather not have him in the band. But what are the instruments being played? Do both brothers play drums? If so get the better drummer.

Win-win situation; even if you get kicked out you can just reform with the other guy.

Explain to him that he has to leave, and that his brother is very talented and not taking anything from him,b ut he is not needed at this time. If he plays the drums too. call him a back-up drummer and he need not be at every session (gig/practice). When needed he may be called, until then we need on the players we currently have and the band only consists of 3 members and only three memebers need to practice together to ensure cohesiveness. Any variation may disrupt the sound you are trying to produce.

If this fails FALCON KICK w/running start for distance as someone put it.
Seriously, just ask him to please leave, we only need 3 now, but be nice about it.

Upon further reflection and soul-searching, I think I may pursue the falcon kick. But before the kid is shot into a merciless fiery oblivion I suppose I'm just going to have to talk it out with him. The dude I want out plays rhythm guitar sorta, really I just play out the entire song and he just throws in little riffs here like up and down a scale every few measures. The job is very expendable though, and this sadly is not taking place in Canada.

TS, you have no idea, but I was put in the exact same situation, it was my drummer and his older brother was supposedly the bassist. Here is how it went down and how you should learn to take these matters honestly and professionally.

We sat down with him and we just told him there is a number of differences with many aspects; mentality, future direction, chemistry, and specially CHEMISTRY if there is no chemistry between just any 2 members you are going to compromise the entire band. So unfortunately we just feel that we wont be able to reach our true potential unless there is this chemistry between every single member and it just doesn't exist right now and we hope you understand the situation and not take it personally.

Talk to his little brother first and share your thoughts on the matter and convince him first then go on with the confrontation.

Good Luck.

Be honest.
Sit them down and explain what you want (or don't want) and the reasons why. Tell the younger brother that you understand he might want to leave too in this situation and that's his decision but he is welcome to stay as that's what you want.
Then let them decide.


When it comes to this sort of thing you really shouldn't mess around. Be respectful but straight to the point; it's better for all parties.

But really, just tell him the band are splitting up, then carry on without him. Worked for Status Quo, and years later, me...
