My band's singer (thankfully) quit around new years. We haven't had much luck attracting decent candidates to fill the role. Recently I got the brainwave that maybe our guitarist could be our new singer. He has a decent voice, although he'd definitly need some lessons as his technique is pretty bad. A friend of mine is moving back into the area after being gone a couple years. He is possibly twice the guitarist 'Jamie' is and a great guy. He has expressed interest in joining our band if "we ever need another guitarist". This would give us: -A decent singer who could play guitar (something we've been wanting) -A singer who is humble -A singer who is on the same page as the rest of the band -A killer guitarist who would work his fanny off.. However.. current guitarist is fairly reserved, not exactly typical frontman material. He's also the youngest member (18). Rest of us are low 20's. I've been toying with the idea that he could sing and I could do a lot of the PR stuff onstage. I'm not terribly outgoing either, but people like me and think I'm funny. I just am not good at making stuff up on the fly...more the sit down and write something out to read....although with time and practise I'm sure I'd improve a lot. Also the *new* guitarist is really outgoing and could help out a lot with the speaking. However, this just seems kinda weird to picture-seems like a shy, wimpy singer and a glory hungry bass player. There's no rush for a singer, we're not desperate yet so obviously we want to take however long it'll take to get things the way we are comfy with. And no no no...I am not becoming the lead vocalist!!!!! The cool thing would be that it would seem more like a 'band' than a one man show with every one of us chipping in our $0.02. Might even be a refreshing change for people. I haven't mentioned this idea yet to anyone, I just wanted some good ol TB feedback before i open my yapper. I have a feeling current guitarist isn't gunna like this idea!!
