Do I tell the rest of the band...or keep it to myself? in General Discussion Posted 2 hours ago 2 minutes ago, paul_5 said: Cards on the table for everyone. Just because you’re not gigging don’t assume that the project has no merit; the benefits to mental health of leaving the house once a week to do something that you love shouldn’t be underestimated. It may be that you all decide to wait for the drummer, and enjoy a weekly meet up and bit of a social, or you get a different drummer in. No good can come from keeping secrets from only some of the band, and I think it’s unfortunate that the drummist has put you in this position. Very much this. If everyone has the same expectations then just getting out and playing together may be just what folk need to keep them interested, their chops up and feed their souls.
