Whether he was fired or quit is kind of debatable. But regardless, the guitar player and him just did not work well together and eventually had a blowout and really couldn't work it out. I am friends with both of them but I doubt they will ever play together again. I see why they didn't get along, but both were in the wrong in certain ways. I really think the drummer is good. I am not sure what to do. We are auditioning a new drummer tomorrow. I get that the drummer was tough to get along with a lot of the time. The guy had a lot of quirks for sure. However, he had a lot of heart, worked hard, was an amazing drummer, and even hauled the equipment. I previously posted about fighting with my band about pay to play. I am very much against it and would like to be promoting our own shows and getting other local bands on the ticket but these guys (minus drummer) seem to really like doing pay to play. I think a big part of why we are no longer all together is because of pay to play. I like our music (original metal), but don't want to do pay to play and I don't like that the drummer is out. I am pretty sure I am going to walk but I am curious as to what you guys think. Thanks.
