    I kinda want to see what all parties involved looked like, to judge based on appearances alone.

    Sounds like rock and roll to me. And free press. Peter should keep his good luck streak alive by hiring another guitar player, and getting another loose girlfriend.

    Um...... dang. :wideyed:

    I have never lived through a guitar player having sex with my girlfriend. But I HAVE lived through my drummer having sex with my wife. It is, in fact, a very effective way of ending a band..... and a marriage.

    And that drummer almost died. ;)

    At least they don't have to fire the drummer.

  6. I want pictures of the parties involved. I've heard of worse things happening in bands. Did the drummer really die?

    My guitarist banged our (chick) drummer.
    She had rejected me the previous year.
    She wasn't in our band at the time.
    It was kinda funny when they broke up.
    "YOU ONLY BANGED ME CAUSE IM THERE!"
    Yup. Singer and me then went outside and laughed for 10 minutes.
     
  10. It is the perfect storm of breakups. It has all the components of a Tennessee Williams play. Betrayal. Infidelity. Death. Angst. Anguish. Mental torture. Depravity.

    How could it turn out any other way? Circumstances aligned and conspired, till there was only one possible outcome.

    With my luck, the drummer would have forgotten his sticks and needed the pair I carry in my gig bag.

    BT,DT......
     
  12. Sounds like a common everyday experience for an up and coming bands. It happens.
    Early in my music career crazier things than that even happened
    I'm just glad I wasn't the drummer or the guy banging a fellow band members GF or wife.
    If I found out some band member was sneaking around doing my lady, he'd be waiting at the pearly gates along with the drummer. Undoubtedly being denied entry.

    Side note. The internet is not private and last forever.
    Never, ever air your dirty laundry on social media. It'll come back to haunt then swallow you up.
    You can tell someone your complaint and solution but that's just hearsay evidence in court. A post on social media is factual evidence and can be used against you in more ways than one.

    “Witchrot”?!?!? Was “Painful Rectal Itch”” already taken? Apparently I will never understand metal heads.

    It almost was...in 1978. In the end, we decided on Trapezoid because we thought Painful Rectal Itch might keep us from being able to play concerts at school.

    Toronto,
    I’m not into slut-shaming the ex-GF. Who really knows, maybe she already told this dude to take a long walk off a short plank, but he still thinks she “belongs to him.” I never judge an—ummm—trio dynamic based solely on the dissapointed person’s testimony. There are at least three sides to every story like this.

    As for the band breakup... Jeez, have these people never heard of Fleetwood Mac? They should have started composing songs and doing highway-grade white lines of coke. A masterpiece could have emerged from the shattered remnants of their friendships.

    Breaking up is not metal. Keeping the band together and howling about how the guitarist makes loving fun is metal.
