Default Re: Canning a guitar player

Never been in a band that fired a guitar player. Been in plenty of bands where a guitar player should have been fired but wasn't. Two come to mind that should have been. One was a mid-fourties hippy that played nothing but Beatles-era guitar licks and was forever stuck in that era. Couldn't get past early 60's rock and roll. Couldn't play anything else but that. The other was a rhythm guitar player / singer who forgot the words to his own lyrics and wouldn't sing directly into his mic. The audience couldn't hear him sing. And he would start songs way off tempo than what we rehearsed. But he had a fantastic looking wife. Maybe that had something to do with it.....
