Are all drummers as pig headed as the drummer in my band?? Here is the situation - We had a show last week. My singer was sick and had a throat infection, but still sang. Obviously not to his fullest potential but he pulled through. I usually back up sing, but didnt for this show because I had a severe flu and a throat infection. I could barely talk let alone back up sing (I play bass), and was running a fever of at least 38.5 celcius. I felt like death! Well, the drummer is pissed that the show did not go good and is blaming us. Fine, it was our fault. But his point is this - If drummers can do a drum fill while being tired and only getting 4 hours of sleep the night before, then vocalists should be able to sing normally and go all out, despite the fact that they have a throat infection and could cause lots of damage to their vocal cords. This reminds me of the James Hetfield/Lars argument on "The making of The Black Album" lol Your thoughts?
