    She refused to do diva style music like Mariah Carrey and Celine Dion. She also refused to do bubblegum like Britteny Spears and Christina Aguillera. Cool.
    She also refused to do songs sang by men.
    She wanted suggestions on what to sing. I told her maybe some Stevie Nicks or Pat Benetar. She flew off the handle and told me, "how dare you group me with people like that!" Ok, woman, what the hell do you want to sing then? The guy in the band who could sing told her he would sing the male songs. She then said, what am I supposed to do when you are singing. He then asked did she even play an instrument. She went nuts. "are you insinuating I can't play anything?" She then said she played the flute in high school. I said "fine, you know any Jethro Tull?" She screamed and ran out of the room. I quit the band.
     
  2. MY GOODNESS! That's absolutely horrible! *smack* hahaha Sometimes people just need a nice smack! uch! why did you take her for the gig? Maybe you should have had her sing what she sang to get the gig! =X horrible situation man.. sorry to hear it

    Won't do Celine, Mariah, Brittany, Christina, Stevie, Pat, or anythning by a guy...

    Well what DOES she sing????

    Just goes to show that knuckleheads come in all shapes, sizes, colors and genders...
     
  5. Sounds to me that she saved you and bandmates a whole bunch of time to waste on other things...like stupid posts or god forbid a bit-o-practice.

    You quit the band? I take it she 's doing the owner of the PA (band leader). Otherwise, how'd she even get past the audition?

    Y'know, JWC, it seems like you always end up hanging out with some seriously dysfunctional people. Dorky people, even. Is that spelled disfunctional? Whatever.
     
  8. She might not do diva style music, but she shure got the Diva attitude down pat.

    Claydirnt is right...

    You'd think that with that sorta additude, she'd have something to back it up...guess not. Ever see the VH1 movie "Out of Sync?" yep...

    She ended up during our only gig getting into a shouting match we me on the side of the stage because I wanted to close the show with one song and her the other. Guess who won?

    Ha Ha exactly.... You did the right thing JWC. The band should have been the ones running out the door screaming! Love the Tull comment too, good work!

    Feminist jokes are ok. People are just too easily offended these days. No wonder we have so many lawsuits, etc.

    sorry. I'm just a bit touchy. I have had so much bull from guys I don't take those kinda jokes very well even if they're not directed towards me. It's hard to forget when someone "does" you and then shouts at you calling you a stupid w hore over and over.
