    So in my new band, it's like a Jack Johnson rip-off, the rhythm section are the only people with the girlfriends in the band! Me and the drummer both do!

    But then again, the lead singer/guitarist has girls all over him all the time, but still, ironic ain't it?

    A thought from the female perspective...

    Had to get in The Way-Back Machine and pretend I'm 22 again...

    "Hmmm...let's see. They're all pretty cute, and they all seem pretty nice. But I don't want to wait in line all night to talk to that guitarist. He's got women all over him. I'll go talk to the drummer/bassist!"

    And there you have it.

    Cherie ;-)

    It's because most of the time the bassist and the drummer have the biggest "instruments" in the band :D (or so i've heard)

    me and my drummer both have girlfriends (or what can be considered a girlfriend in junior high...) and girls just... don't like my guitarist...
  5. I am the only member of my band who is flying solo. Infact,I'm the only one who hasn't had a girlfriend. No,we are not that old,only 13-15.
    The other band I am in doesn't count,because all of them are much older than me. By older I mean in their late 40-50s.

    We need to clone you....
  7. Sounds to me like you guys have the better end of the deal!!!

    Do you really want air-headed, one-dimensional, drunk, sleazy groupies slobbering all over you?! Superficially you might say yes, but don't come crying to me when you're getting treatment for syphilis. :eyebrow:

    Trust me, get yourself an intelligent, respectable woman with good career prospects and treat her like she ought to be treated - you'll never look back.

    Phenomena is the plural of phenomenon.
  10. It's trivia like this that get's us bassists all the girls!
    A guitarist would never have known that!!

    I am the bassist and I usually had girls approach me after shows instead of the other band members in my old band..i have a gf so it does not do much good for me..sure did piss off the lead singer/guitarist who was single lol.

    Our new band has a female singer, she has a great voice and lots of sex appeal...It'll surely attract male fans like a magnet!

    I'm confused where Jack Johnson ripoff comes into play in this story?
