    Wow, that is actually the most insane thing I've ever read on CL.
  3. Must be
    stable and
    Seems easy to find at least three musicians financially stable without a day job. :rollno:

    "My style is much like Nickleback, Johhny Cash and Pantera rolled into one." ok... Is there some other guy name "Johhny Cash" who plays metal???

    "You must be able to rehearse during the day, 4 times a week and 3-4 hours each practice." Is he paying for rehearsals? If not, well, good luck with that...

    Im a singer and songwriter. I have sang for 4 professional bands in Japan and in Canada. I need a drummer, guitarist and bass. You must be able to contribute to the band musically and finacially.
    Auditions will be held at an undisclosed location and you will be judged by my wife (producer) my manager and a staff of record producers. When setting up an audition you will need a credit card number, I will hold $100 on the card until you show up for the audition, then it will be credited, I have no time for losers that dont show up. My style is much like Nickleback, Johhny Cash and Pantera rolled into one.

    You must be able to rehearse during the day, 4 times a week and 3-4 hours each practice.

    Please respond with your name. phone number, a photo and a link to your music.

    If I'm reading it correctly, the $100 hold is just a deposit. You get it credited back if you show up.

    What the hell does "Nickelback, Johnny Cash, and Pantera rolled into one" sound like?
    I bet someone saw that and thought, "Finally, a band that plays Country-Western-Canadian Metal!!"
    Sheesh. I wonder what his wife/producer thinks of this...

    must sound like "crappy" "depressing" "awesomeness"
  14. Possibly the best CL ad ever.

    You want pictures and music samples from me, but I don't get any of you? OK. You want me to give my credit card number to a total stranger? Sure. Your wife is a better judge of musical ability and interpersonal chemistry than you are? No problem.

    The undisclosed location for the audition might be a problem for me though. If you want me to actually show up in person, I think you'll have to tell me where it is.

    I like it!
    "Auditions will be held at an undisclosed location". Perhaps that means he somehow charges your credit card $100, then doesn't tell you where the audition is. When you don't show up, he keeps the $100. Since his wife is the Producer and Manager, she keeps 70% of it. 20% then goes to the "staff of record producers" who don't have day jobs either, and the singer is left with $10 to purchase Canadian CD's imported from Japan.
    Or perhaps I simply misread the ad. :D

    As if the credit card thing isn't obnoxious enough, his wife is the producer? I dunno about you all, but one of my major prerequisites.......No Yokos
