5. Foo Fighters: William Goldsmith
There are nice ways to find out you're leaving a band and there's the way William Goldsmith found out the Foos didn't want him around any more. Drummer with the Foo Fighters from their formation, he discovered that the rest of the band had been recording The Colour And The Shape without him. Dave Grohl, who had reportedly made Goldsmith do dozens of takes of the same drum parts, had secretly replaced Goldsmith's takes with his own playing.
