my friend john and I used to be in this band for two years and we all went our different ways and now all thats left is john and well, me. John plays drums, and I of course play guitar. Now ever sense our old band split john just doesn't seem like he is all that interested in doing anything. We had a bassist coming over the other day to come audition and the only reason it never happened is because john never showed up to his house (thats where we have our practices because we don't want to haul the drum set). John is a really good drummer though, so what should I do? keep a really good drummer who isn't that interested or find a new drummer that probably sucks that is interested?
Have you tried talking to John to find out what's going on with him? I'd try that first, and then consider whether to recruit a new drummer or not - depending on what's going on in his head.
