    I read this and thought, this guy can't be for real, but who knows. I'm tempted to reply and ask if he is serious.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi,

    I'm a lead singer/songwriter (because all great singers can write songs, right?) and I'm seeking an entire band to form the most explosive speed-pop-reggae-hip-trip-hop thrashcore-grindcore-deathcore-metalcore-corecore punk-ska-jazz creation ever.

    I need the following:

    - Two Guitarists, one that does lead and one that does rhythm who will be able to play anything and everything in unison. All leads by the lead guitarist shall be at a minimum. It's not all about you, bitch.
    - An accomplished drummer that will not argue with me, and knows his role as the guy in the back farthest from the front of the stage that keeps the beat going. I do not want to have to fight you. You beat on things for fun. Being mute is a plus.
    - Your standard bass player that will on occasion, throw out a vowel or two during the creative process, but no one really gives a **** as to what a bass player has to say anyway. Chances are your bass work will not be heard in the final mixes of our demos. If this hurts your feelings, see drummer for emotional tampon.
    - Previous unsuccessful material that I can critique.

    Please Note: All musicians that are interested must have expensive, QUALITY gear, their own transportation (public is ok), must be punctual (that means on time, drummers), and most of all, be great. You must also have rehearsal space already lined up, as well as PA equipment. Being the singer, I will show up prepared....to sing.

    SERIOUS INQURIES ONLY PLEASE! Don't waste my time like I just wasted yours.

    I sent a reply "Are you serious", it will be interesting to see what he says, if anything.
     
  5. :p
    Man this is hilarious, I'm in tears!
     
  6. Obviously, if this guy is citing genres such as reggae and ska, he lacks a proper understanding of just how important his bass player's contributions will be. I like what he said about the lead gui**** and drummer, but he blew himself out of the water when discussing the bass.

    Flame this POS, if you can.

    Ummm....my post refers to the OP, not the one that just came in above this one.

    Ok, got a reply from the guy.

    I asked 'are you serious"

    His reply

    "Thanks! Far from it...just venting some CL frustrations, that's all.

    I'm a drummer too by the way...heheh."

    Turns out he's a funny guy.

    Both of those ads scream "F**K OFF" and in a few weeks, they'll be scratching their heads wondering why they can't seem to get a band together.


    SOLO PROJECT!

    Glenn,

    You should send a reply and see if this guy is venting also. I just could not believe the one i posted could be serious, turns out he was just venting if it was it would have required a bitch slap!

    We are looking fro a singer, our lead guitar did get something similar 2 days ago to his reply . A guy that wanted to be a singer but only wanted to do his set list and would not sing anything else. good luck to him...clown.
