@gilly: So, if that guitar player “needs” his guitar that loud, you better generate that level from a powerful yet directional wedge not from a more or less omnidirectional guitar amp. If he’s running the stage while playing, IEM for him would probably the best solution.
As already mentiond, its his decision if the band plays for the audience or own fun.
Of course this is a diplomatic issue, you can’t get a nice sound against the musicians on stage. You have to build one team with the musicians. They’re responsible playing correct notes and you ensure the audience can hear them on an acceptable level. This only works if all are pulling the rope in same direction.

Any chance someone else plays his guitar on the same level, so he can hear the mud from the audience? Sometimes this helps to clarify standpoints…
