Can i use my Chet Baker quote now? "It takes a pretty good drummer to be better than no drummer." You may not know it, but an awful lot of them are doing you a favour by not showing up, LOL. And that's not me being bitter, just realistic... then again, i pretty much do everything myself nowadays. The entire band always shows up on time, in tune, and ready to play, and we don't argue amongst ourselves all that much.
