Most of your rocknrollers probably recognise this problem with drummers. I'm talking about this dudes who don't show up to band practice/jam and suddendly if your band is working well they show up just for practice songs they already know just to be tight for the gig. I have been with that kind of drummers all my fucking live. Execpt one who was very into it to write with us songs and be real part of the group (the only problem was he couldn't kept pace).
I'm in a band for the jam. We're trying to make oldschool psych rock that is 90 % jam and improvisation.
Maybe I live in too small area ( I get it when psychedelic gets too unavailable for some people)
Gaddanmit drummers make me go crazy......
