Wow...we are just a church band

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by FlawLaw, Jun 2, 2004.


  1. I am a minister. I started a little church band to play our Saturday services. Originally, I was the drummer, but then converted to bass. In any case, there were four of us. The guitar player, however, could not sing a lick and was a terrible guitar player. Being a minister and nice and all. I resisted confronting him, but then people were telling me that he sucked. Imagine that little old church ladies coming to me and saying that guitarist sucks. This evening at rehearsal we let him go. He explodes. He acts as if he is being booted from the Beatles. He starts swearing - in the sanctuary no less and says, call the cops, cause I'm not leaving. Oh well. I guess some people take themselves too seriously. Needless to say he finally left, but wow! It was touch and go.

    You should have smote him with the edge of the bass body.

    yeah, people get fired up about being kicked out of a band. I'm lucky enough (knock on wood, hehe) to not have had this happen to me, but I'd like to think if it did I wouldn't start swearing and all
