I was wondering what others think about band members also joining other bands. I'm in a power trio set-up, and both of my bandmates are in other bands [the drummer is in two other bands]. They are both dedicated to my band, but sometimes I get the drummer saying that he had been so busy that he hadn't rehearsed. I know work gets in the way, but it also makes me wonder whether he is stretching himself too thinly. I thought I would be okay with them in other bands, and sometimes it's not a bad thing - my drummer got us a gig through one of his other bands. Plus, I understand that sometimes people like to play in various different genres and it's good networking for us in general. However, for some reason, I'm not okay with it. I keep wondering how they can maintain the level of commitment to a band if they are in multiple bands.
