As a drummer, it's hard as titanium to say this, but you'd be better off with a drum machine. The most talented musician in any band is usually the drummer. We make or break a song. You've got a good song, but your drummer sucks something awful. Do yourself, including the "drummer" a favor... cut him from the band, or you will never... NEVER... get anywhere. Do it now, before it's too late. I dig your sound, but as far as the drummer... it's over. End it.
