It's hardest when they don't see it coming, but it also justifies the decision.
I had an original band a few years back where we fired the bassist... a few years later over beers, he said "I just had no idea it was coming," and I said "Well, had you known it was coming, I'm supposing we wouldn't have had to kick you out."

We had a guy (2nd guitar) a little more than a year ago.. GIT grad, guitar teacher, really good guy. He could play like a MuthaFucka... in his bedroom
On stage he looked like a deer in the headlights. And god forbid he had to step on a foot pedal... It screwed him up every time.
Telling him that he wasn't gonna cut it was hard as hell. Like I said, he was a really good guy. He took it rough too. That made it all the worse. Unfortunately I haven't spoken to him since.

I had to let someone go a couple weeks ago. I thought we left it on good and friendly terms. They kinda saw it coming. I thought, well that went pretty well, that's good. Everything stayed friendly.
The next day they started saying all kinds of malicious stuff. I contacted them to ask about why we weren't staying friendly and they went off.
Bridge burned. Not how I wanted it to go at all.

I had the idea, and started the group, but soon I was forced out by the lead singer, because we were pulling in opposite directions and he claimed he was getting stressed. This clever bastard had it all laid out, so most of the group went along, and now they are playing all over the place for FREE!
Not long ago I got the call to see if I wanted to come back, or at least sit in with them when I was around... Want to guess what I said to that?

I forgot to add that they claim no one is willing to pay what it would require to book a large group... But then, they never tried either! They now call themselves a charitable organization... Next, they will be doing the nursing home tour!
