So about three weeks back our drummer up and quit completely out of the blue. Since then I have been scrambling trying to find a replacement. I've put flyers up in every music store, posted on ever musician site around and contacted several bands and musicians for any leads.

About a day after our drummer quit a guy contacted us about coming out. Cool right? Well he was a nice guy but he was, let's just say, less than good. I figured that perhaps he's just a bit rusty and needs to work on things a bit. So I told him to come back in a week. He's say's cool. Now keep in mind that he sounds totally into this. Well next practice rolls around and no word from him. I call him a few times......nothing. I send him emails...nothing.

Well about an hour after he was supposed to be here I get an email saying that he can't be in a band right now because of his wife. ugh....

So about a week later I get a call from a guy who read one of my flyers...cool. I ask him if he's had a chance to listen to any of our songs....nope he doesn't have a pc. Ok...well I tell him I'll burn him a disk and meet him somewhere.

So I do this and we set up a time.

The guy is pretty shady looking to say the least, but hey whatever. So I give him the disk and try to talk with him for a bit. It was one of the more awkward conversations I've ever had. I had to drag answers out of the guy. So I tell him to give the songs a listen to and give me a call and we'll go from there.

Now here is the strange part......

I get up to leave and put my hand out to shake his. He just sits there with his arms crossed. He was looking right at my hand but didn't put his out. Talk about strange. Well I pull my hand back tell him again to give me a call and walk out with a very weird feeling.

Needless to say I never heard from him....thank God.

So I'm becoming beyond frustrated at this point. I start going through really old contacts I have for people that were supposed to come out at some point but never did.

I find the number for a guy who lives semi close to here and give him a call. He seems really into the stuff when I tell him to check out the site and he says that he can make it out on Thursday no problem, oh and can he bring some beer with him because he likes to have a few at practice.

Having a few beers at practice is alright, but Christ not when you're coming out the first time!!!

I tell him that I think it would be best to wait for that stuff. He says no problem.

Wednesday rolls around and what do you know...I get an email saying that he can't make it. UGHHHHHHHHHH

So now I'm back to placing more and more ads on a daily basis.....

Go to the local colleges mang.

 

I know your pain on the drummer count. Our group has been essentially a 3-piece with a sad drumming guitarist for months, and thusly going nowhere because our drummer should be our front man - so we just jam.

 

What I really want is a drummer who can run a good D&D game - now that's impossible. :p

Actually I did put some flyers up in the local Community college. My next step is to hit some local bars and put some up there. I am pretty much out of ideas at this point

If not you can just get a sweet drum machine and write emo songs about not being able to find a drummer.

 

{censored} it, you're making false metal anyway, why not use a drum machine?

 

You could get a $200 drum kit and set up a blow up doll behind it for shows and the rock everything in sequence.

Find me a new job, pay for my moving expenses, find me a house, and find me a replacement bassist for my bands here and I''ll come be your drummer.

 

Either that, or just fly me across the country every week for rehearsals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep on keepin on. You'll find one.

 

My goth band was gigging around for 3 years before they decided to get a drummer.
