Have the you or any of the other guys told him that his cymbals are over powering? If he knows that there is an issue he might be able to help take care of it.
On the other hand how would you feel if he was on drumgeek.com saying that he didn't think your guitar tone sat right in the mix, and asking if you should use heavier strings or if he should just take a couple of your strings off your guitar entirely?

Re: The ten ways to make me hate your band...
8- Asking me to get closer to the stage or to put my hands in the air. If you have to ask, then you suck.
9- Taking 45 minutes to get set up for a half hour set.
