Ive was fired 1 time during my 17 yrs of extensive raod work.Its possible some from that old band COULD be on here so CHIME IN if ya remember this 1989 Chicago event..Being a full blown Alki, I went nuts one nite crashin cymbals turning over cymbal stands and beating a drum kit to death destroying it becuase I didnt like the female vocal playin the tamborine in to the mic ruinin my nifty HH work.Needless to say, the band left the stage
. I was fired THAT NITE but didnt remember the next day.My girlfreind at the time had to keep re-enforcing "HEY DICKWEED , THEY FIRED YOUR DRUNK ASS".I called and apologized profusely getting myjob back thank GOD, but I was never really trusted again.I think once ya fire someone, its best to stick to it for all concerned.Yeah , most raod firings Ive had to participate in involved a band meeting in the motel room
with each memeber giving their 2 cents on the matter.Kinda like an intervention.It can get pretty wild as Im sure alotta of ya know.
Sometimes it just had to do with downsizing the band ..Thtas when it was really sad cuase ususally the person didnt see it comin.When I worked for single artists , the firing was done with out the bands knowledge.You just showed up on stage the next nite with a different bassplayer..
Many diff ways a firing can take place.Theres prolly no best way...Needs to be quick!!! without alotta YOU SHOULDA ,YOU COULDA, WHY WOULDNT YA? JUST DO IT... YOUR FIRED!!! Then move on...
