Update: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/25991352/ Looking through Craigslist ads for a singer and found one in our age range, who sings our style. We've heard him before and he's very good. However, there's a problem. What should we do? Here's his ad: Hi! I'm a 45-Year-Old Rock Singer. Hi there. I'll give you the plus sides, and the possible minus sides, of having me sing in your band. I'm doing this because I remember the frustration of trying out new band members in past years, so I feel for ya. I've received plenty of joke responses, by the way -- so if you reply just to mess with me, you're not being original. I just wanted to get that out of the way. I'll actually cover the possible cons first: I don't own a P.A. anymore. My last one died after many years of use. I'm not interested in an all-cover band. I'll understand if we have to play a few covers, but I mostly like to sing originals, whether I write them or not. I don't have a car. This is completely by choice. It's not about the money. I just like to walk, so having a car would be a waste, especially since I'm single and have no kids (again, this is on purpose). You might be within walking distance, however, and I have no problem walking to rehearsal. I live off Irving, on the West Side. Otherwise, it might be a drag to pick me up for practice. If you're still reading, here are the pros: I sing extremely well, with 20+ years of stage experience in Albuquerque and other cities. I sang back-up while drumming during most of that time, but I was better than our lead singer. (There's no reason to be modest at the moment, right?) I sang back-up because I didn't want to drum and sing lead at the same time. I've written and recorded my own songs for many years. I'm a good collaborator, but I'm also good at not changing others' songs if they should be left the way they are. My ego never gets in the way. I take music more seriously than I take myself. I'm good-humored and cooperative. I don't drink or use drugs. I try to be tolerant toward others, however, since I smoke cigarettes (outdoors -- I'm aware that a lot of people don't like the smoke. Whenever I join a band, I cut way down, so my throat stays strong). If necessary, I can also play keyboards and guitar. At the moment, I own an acoustic Fender guitar and a full-sized Casio keyboard. If playing an instrument isn't needed, I have no problem sticking to vocals only. I'm fit. I like to exercise. Energy is never a problem. Thanks for reading this! Whether it's me or someone else, I hope you find someone you like. Break a leg!
