Looking to vent and get some advice. We have a guitar player in our band who is so friggin lazy. He comes to a show a half hour or less before downbeat. He never helps us set up the PA or lights. I'm lucky if the guy can set up his own vocal mic and mic up his amp, and maybe he might have one of his three guitars in tune. Then when we are supposed to begin our show, he complains that we are running late. I nearly clocked him on a couple of occasions when I was sweating profusely setting up my rig after the PA was set up and he complained about us running late. I am the sound guy for my band, and I took that role on voluntarily because I have more technical knowledge and experience. But it doesn't mean I am the only guy who does the setup and breakdown. Crap anyone can carry a PA speaker and set it on a stand. The drummer is relieved of this duty because his set takes enought effort haul in and set up. The other guys in the band help out when they can with or without asking. Then at the end of the night, he goes out into the bar and lollygags around. He doesn't try to get us paid, nor is he trying to meet any ladies. He just lollygags while we unplug cords and carry stuff to the car. He's in the bathroom or wandering around, generally being unuseful. Then after the PA is taken down he starts working on his rig. I don't think this guy would have any guilt if we carried out his rig for him. I have called him on it nicely and impolitely, and I get excuses in return. One of these days he's gonna get a punch in the mouth in return for his excuses. The guy is lazy, but, he is a phenomenal player. He also sings more than half the songs in our band. He is a somewhat nice guy, but he's lazy as hell. BTW he is healthy, no physical disabilities. I'm kinda lazy myself, but this guy makes me look like a immigrant working during the Industrial Revolution. It pisses me off because, laziness does not propel a band forward. It keeps you behind. I remind him that guitar players are a dime a dozen, but he still doesn't get it. When we are performing it sounds great, but when we are not I get pissed off at the guy for his laziness/selfishness. Thanks for letting me vent. Does anyone else go through this crap? Any advice from anyone? The band has steady work and I don't want to see it come to an end, but this dude's laziness is really starting to piss me off.
