    Let me guess...

    Drummer issues
    Lead Vocalist issues
    Guitarist issues
    Commitment issues
    Transportation issues
    Rehearsal space issues
    Personality issues
    Relationship issues

  5. Regardless of the complaint—and there are thousands of possibilities—there are still only three possible courses of action.
    1. Do nothing. Accept the situation, and learn how to live with it.
    2. Change the situation. Address the problems as a group, and work toward resolution.
    3. Leave. Vacate the situation, and move on to something else.
    There is an old adage: “There are three reasons for being in a band: the music, the money, or the camaraderie.”
    • If you have all three, stay.
    • If you have one or less, leave.
    • If you have two, it’s your choice.

    Nah. I've got plenty of my own problems without taking on yours.

    On the other hand, I'm WAY better at coming up with solutions to other people's problems than my own, so shoot....

    Life's too short. Talk to them, if no improvement find another band.

    Is your band The Jailhouse Rockers and you just lost your lead singer to clemency?

    I like it. Put in prose the same point can be transcribed this way.

    "If you don't like it change it. If you can't change it endure it or quit it. If you chose the endure it option, don't complain about it."

    Context is everything. Make sure your band has a tuba in it before you make your final decision.

    allow me to advise against this as you are never as anonymous online as you think you are.
