The leader of my band is one of those guys who is always happy, motivated and just thinks that things are always great. That's why we get some of the most fun gigs in the area playing nice parties, festival gigs, openning for national acts, etc... He's the guys that gets all the gigs, and part of why is that he knows everyone in town. On the other hand, he's by far the worst musician in the band. He's the tenor saxophonist and we're a classic rock and R and B band. He always overplays, plays wrong notes, squaks with the sax, and plays with band intonation. We've told him to take lessons, which he did for about a month, and went right back to not improving again. He thought three or four lessons was enough. IT WASN'T. We've told him to stop over playing, but it continues. I even walked over to him and pulled the horn out of his mouth in the middle of a song on stage twice in the last three months. But he thinks he's doing just great. I can't take him anymore, and I'm getting ready to quit. But the rest of the band is fun and good. We've all had enough to varying degrees. But once again, the gigs are fun gigs, and he's the one who knows everyone to book us. I don't know if I'm asking for advice or if I just want to vent.
