    Very harsh generalisation, Bob.My first thought was "Boy Band".

    It's what they call "humor", Mike. See, if you want to make fun of blues or anything I play, I'll laugh it off.

    Lighten up.

    Actually, a boy band ad would say "Between ages 15 & 17"

    Well, they've declared what they want and gave you an idea of the skills the current members possess. Read, chuckle to yourself and move on to the next ad.

    Hi,

    "No experience necessary. Will train.", perhaps? Just turn it all the way up and strum as fast as you can. No problem.

    :bag:


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    And it's in Philly which would suggest potential rehearsal times being any hour given the unemployment rate... Rock it!

    ...then a death blues band could create a rift in the space/time continum that may have the potential to make the world implode! :eek:

    Hey, it worked pretty well with Paul Simonon in the Clash.

    I reckon "waynobass" has the emphasis on "waynotaste".

    Was looking through the local CL today and saw an ad from someone wanting to be my (and your) music perducer.

    Just to make sure it was not a random typo I opened the ad and it was intentional.
