Wanted to ask you something. Over the years I've seen more drama in bands than in any other area of my life. Not in my work, not compared to my community service work, not even in my family. But in bands -- they seem drama prone. i think its due to a number of tings -- one there is a heavy dependence on each other due to each person having their own discrete instrument. This can cause tension. Another is the amount of work they are for small pay...interpersonal problems tend to be harder to take in those situations. Also, its not l.ike being on a committee - if someone doesn't get along or quits a committe, the committee might pick up the slack for a while but its less of an adjustment than when you lose a band member. Someone quits in your band, or tries to fire you, it's a traumatic experience given all the work you've invested in each other. Have you experienced the same thing? Or have things ticked along largely smoothly in the bands you are in?
