Mine is (sparing the band drama details and just venting)
Now I feel better!
Boy am I!
Learn to sing and you can become one, too--or is it a prerequisite?
No, mine is great. She loves and appreciates the band for enabling her to live a dream. Four of us make a great team. I have worked with the other kind though...
I won't play with douchebags. The singers I play with are always very happy to have a good backing band and let everyone know.
I am the singer, so you'll have to ask my bandmates. They'll probably say "yes".
Mine is a manipulative drama queen...but he sure is a good singer
He was the impetus for the last two bass players and finally myself to quit the band.
you're not my drummer, are you?
I am the lead singer and I am an a-hole. I also suck at Guitar, but they have to live with me because we're family!
I've dealt with plenty of those.
Thankfully, my current singer/writing partner is humble, super-talented and easy to work with.
not that it's an excuse, but for me to work with someone like that again, they'd have to be the best thing since sliced bread.
thing is, they never are. they're almost always expendable.
the fun part is the look on their face when it hits them that they ARE expendable...
Maybe before we dumped her and started playing jazz...
Had a funk band that was turning into a variety band and she'd suuuccckkkkk on anything she didn't want to sing (a la classic funk tunes - original intent of the band). Dumped her and just doing instrumental jazz now.
Nope. A sweetheart.
No, but there's certainly a set of tendencies that can make them seem douchey even if they aren't.
the only ones that i have worked with that were douchebags also sang only. they didn't play an instrument. seems to make a difference. singing guitar gods, slightly less douchey.
Beware playing in a band with anyone who never brings any gear to rehearsal or gigs.
In order to be a frontman of a band you generally have to have a "type A" personality. Nothing wrong with that, that's what makes great frontmen GREAT. However.... douche-baggery is genearlly one of the many traits that goes along with it.
This type of personality disorder is what musicians commonly refer to as "having LSD" (Lead Singer Disease)
