Sorry in advance for the length. About 2 years ago, I was asked to start a band with a very good guitar player whom I hadn't seen in 30 years. We auditioned many singers and finally found the right one. Earlier this year, I was going through a difficult time. My uncle died, my mother died and my wife's aunt died, all within 3 months of each other. I was under a lot of pressure and without my knowledge, the band changed our rehearsal schedule to a night that would prefer to not do. I expressed my concern and received a text from the guitar player which read "Do it or I will find someone who will". I don't like ultimatums so I left the band. Two months later they ask me to come back because my replacement is not working out. I agree and do a gig within one week of re-joining. The gig went well. In the meantime we have 2 keyboard players when we only need one and have one guitar player when we really need 2. I also double on guitar because the lead singer plays bass. We have a keyboard player who also plays Sax and Flute and is learning guitar. For what we do we really need 2 guitar players. A few weeks ago, the guitar player acknowledges that we need to get rid of a keyboard player and add a guitar player. We all agree. I ask a friend whom I have known for 40 years and he agrees to join the band. The guy is by far one of the best players I have ever heard and easy to get along with. He hasn't even played with us yet and our guitar player is now saying that he doesn't see a need for another guitar player. He has been friends with the keyboard player that we are keeping for 30 years and says he can handle guitar even though its obvious that he can't. I feel like the only reason the guitar player wants the keyboard player to play guitar is because they are friends and if he was friends with the guitarist that I know he would have asked him to join the band months ago. In addition to that, he also said that he feels like he is being pressured to add a guitar player even though he asked me to find one. I have been right about every person we have auditioned even when the guitar player felt differently I was proven to be correct. I really think we need to add another player and am at the point that I am seriously thinking of leaving again.
