Default Re: Acceptable reasons for you to get up from the drums mid song?

I had to endure a near band member walk out last year. A piercing stare & some choice threats were necessary to turn that around. I can understand the reasons why said band member wanted to bail, but in front of a huge audience is not a great time to do that, even if everything is going very badly. Us drummers should rise above that & show real grit :)

I did (foolishly) enter the chilli eating competition prior to headlining the national Harley Davidson rally last year. Luckily (via multiple trips to the cubicle) I managed to avert catastrophic core meltdown, & lasted the 2 hour set. If I had failed in my task, that certainly would have justified a short unscheduled interval :(
