Setup: 5 piece band. Me, drummer, lead guitar player who is awesomely good (though too loud), 2nd guitar player who sings and is the best singer in the band, keyboard player who is pretty good and sings. (though he has the style of Ric Ocasek. which could be good in the right situation but not exactly right for our style.) Before last weekend's gig, the lead guitarist takes me aside and asks if I'd be interested in starting a new band with him and other guitarist. My answer was, "Sure!". Because he and other guy are the best in the band IMHO. I've long believed that the vocals ARE the band and all else is embellishment. They mostly want to start a new band without the keyboard player, and WITH the guitar-vocalists' brother who is REALLY REALLY good on vocals. I'm not clear on the status of the drummer, but if he joined it would be obvious we're just trying to drop the keyboard player - and he IS a nice guy, though tries to be the BL a bit too much. And after the other thread I just dropped, my feelings about the drummer aren't exactly tip-top right now. Anyway, so I am seeing this band breaking up, and it's kinda sad. I really do like all of them. But I'm not married to them, and I never said I'd LEAVE the current band. But the divisions are becoming clear.
