ugh, you cant rape someone with a pineapple because that would assume that someone doesnt want to have sex with a pineapple, which is impossible

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.
Have everyone in the band stand in one line, then say "Ok, everybody's who's in the band take one step forward - wait! Not so fast, drummer boy."
Just tell him that he's a cool guy, but you're not really looking for that kind of drummer. Sorry for the inconvenience.

tell him he isn't fulfilling his commitment to the band and if he doesnt start putting more effort into it, you're gonna kick him out. then kick him out after a week or two
well tell him like this: We´re motivated, you´re not. We don´t wanna fool around and get serious, so we ask you to leave this band, we´re very sorry.

Your last job only paid you $7.00 AUD an hour? That's like $6.05 in the US. What the hell is the minimum wage over there?

$0 for volunteer work

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

we have a Llama forum, and still no drum forum.
Just tell him.

However, it is not wise to ditch him from the band before you have found a replacement.

Quote by monkeysintheday
Did anybody else read the India part?
Why is he going there?

Expedition? I did that in India for a month.

My band at the time had no problem with it. Unless you're playing gigs you don't need a replacement for that month. Anyways, TS, have you actually talked to him? Give him an ultimatum.

i will play for you!

where do you live?

Can you count to 8 and stomp your foot with that while occasionally hitting some sort of cymbal?
if so you are qualified to replace my drummer
we are a soft alternative gband and he spends most of practice butchering raining blood horribly
