So we need to can one of our band members. He's just not working out and I drew the short straw - so I have to tell him he's out. The news needs to be broken to him ASAP because the new guy's coming in soon. I really like the dude - but to continue being a successful project - we've got to part ways. I've always been in managed bands and the management company took care of the crappy jobs like this. That's not the case here. Any suggestions? I know I'll get a lot of wise crack answers - but seriously - I don't want to be too much of a douche and I don't want to send him some lame a** email saying he's out. Any suggestions/ideas on how to make this go a little smoother would be really appreciated. Thanks.
