Hey there, folks, How do you deal with a drummer (old friend) who bothers everybody, specially the guitarists with endless complaining about the volume? Dude can play the drums, no doubt, but he's a bit loud himself, sometimes he goes over the top and you can't hear anyone during practice time but him. The point is: 90% of the time the band isn't loud at all! It's like he's got some dog-like hearing and can stand nothing but himself going beyond 10dB! A drummer ffs!!! I've suggested the use of earplugs which he refused promptly. One guitarist left the band after getting fed up with the complaints. The second one seems to be going down the same road... What to do except firing his ass?
