Post poll: what do your band members argue/bitch about most?!
hi
those of you in a band, what do you argue about or bitch over the most
ie VOLUME! screw ups, being late to gigs, not setting up/packing up etc?
or is it only my band who argue! :?:

i bitch about a few things......1)i cant write stuff for the band because its kinda outta my style (very heavy metal...tuned to b standard). Everything i write seems to come out dream theater/racer x-ish.....our music and riffs are fairly simple....but i get my licks in whenever i want....lol....so all is good. 2)our singer is a lazy prick....as we pack our gear for shows....he grabs a mic and a cord and thats it....hmm....help me lift the stack perhaps? 3)volume at shows pisses me off to no end...everywhere we play the soundsman friggin sux.....when i'm playing it feels like i'm playing air guitar...i cant hear myself...which is no good cause i'm lead. I ask ppl if they can hear me out in the crowd between songs....when i hear "no!"...i turn around and crack my amp up more....pisses the soundman off...but fuck him..... :)

phew....ok....i'm done ranting!

Floyd or no floyd. We had to get rid of a guitarist once because he said he wouldnt play if i did floyd tricks and played in scales other than the pentatonics

Bush
Greenday
Nirvana

That was what I usually complained about.
The other [email protected] usually bitched about why the Pizza delivery guy is taking so long to find our practice.

It's usually just me and my drummer arguing, he always tries to turn the band "punk", and he always speeds the song up too fast, no matter how much i lecture him!
