Just a question.
One or the other, OK. But both, no.
Both or neither, but not just one.
Well im fat and ugly. So no, i like being the fat guy.
i cant tell if this is a serious question. if they have chops and are dedicated, i wouldnt have a problem. unless youre trying to create a band that promotes hollister.
So Meat Loaf wouldn't be allowed?
Can they play?
for over fifteen years we had a 450lb, imposing bald guy as our frontman. he was great and an incredible lyricist and performer. we played post punk kind of stuff. we got an equal share of people who said we could really go somewhere if only we "looked good" as we did people who thought we were that much cooler because we didn't have a pretty boy singer and it made us more credible and honest. the latter group were the fans worth having.
If I had a fake band, I would not.
If I had a real band, a persons physical attributes would not matter.
I'm fat but I feel I play and present well and anyone would be lucky to have me. I think it's all about confidence. Fat, ugly, and awkward is a losing combination though.
You can't perform well if you're too self conscience. Pretty or not.
Unhealthy you don't need, too many complications, but big and ugly is fine if they get it done.
They are pretty big in Hungary.
This can be a real problem if you are flying coach next to them. Seems like fat people always take the isle seat, immediately putting the armrest up, taking off their sneakers, and stretching out for that trans-Atlantic red-eye.
The answer is yes... as my band has me
It's not a dealbreaker, but it is a medium-level consideration.
Look/Image is important in live performance-arts, albeit at some gigs more than others.
I think its much more relevant of a question for original bands trying to "make it". Image is fairly important then.
In a regular cover band.... I don't think it matters as long as the individual brings it.

Try telling that to Orson Wells, Raymond Burr, or Ernest Borgnine!
Yeah, yeah, I know they are dead. But still...
In a metal band? No
If I was putting together a band to play to tween girls? Yes. I wouldn't be able to be in it, either.
I dont judge people by their looks, if they can play they can play.
It's a small consideration for me. As long as they aren't absolutely horrid in both aspects, I have no issues.
I wouldnt care.
