So I'm back playing and got people on board. Here's the deal: 3 of 4 want to go into power pop/alternative/classic rock stuff... The other is a great guy with lots of desire and ability... but I am worried because he comes from the progressive rock school. A prog drummer in a rather simple rock band. This is a challenge. He already knows where we might go and he's very open-minded but I do worry that he will become very uncomfortable. Any of you guys have had a similar situation? How do you tweak (sp?) the band sound to allow all members to express themselves in some form without compromising the core musical idea?
