You might try moving the amp into a back closet or building an Iso box… or mount a speaker & mic inside an Iso cab and bypass his amplifier’s speaker (something like this: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SilentSister?adpos=1o1&creative=55281441601&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=COC6vKCv-cQCFY6Rfgod0nEAOw). If the WL is concerned with tone, these options are the best way to maintain power tube saturation without blowing away the congregation. You will need to bring the guitar up in the wedges, but at least you have control.

If the WL is simply unwilling to reduce his stage volume, buy a fully enclosed drum shield to contain him. It may be a hard sell, but your drummers will love you for it.
