The title might sound like an oxymoron but hear me out. I am in a band with 2 good friends who happen to be brothers. The guitar player has sever Aspergers, because of that he still lives at home. They are both excellent musicians and I'd dare to say they are well above their age in skill. The problem comes with their mom. She has always managed their bands, gotten gigs and such as she works in marketing so she knows people. They just recently broke up with their cover band and things were said and people were hurt. She basically used our new bands fb page to vent and write a novel about how we are going to be "better" and free musically. responding to fans comments on how were writing music just for them and if they don't like it we can change, which is BS. deleted the posts as soon as I saw them. Another problem that has arose is she is pushing us to get a "lead singer" at the moment me and the guitar player share lead with me taking 60% and him 40%. She wants us to get a lead singer and is pushing him hard at us. I seem to be the only one voicing my opinion, the other 2 just seem to roll over and play dead with the whole "my mom never leads us wrong" or "she knows what's best" it's just extremely frustrating. Now one more problem. (Nothing to do with the mom) the guitar player being a little on the autistic side, absolutely hates change. I have some professional recording equipment and I know how to use it but he just won't accept that we could use it, he wants to record with some crappy audio interface that records to an SD card and ugh. Took me 3 hours to convince him to just try it out. I really love playing with these guys and we make some awesome music but we've only been together for 3 months and I'm already being irritated by things. Just needed to vent, really don't know what else to do.
