You can't have a band with members that aren't old enough to get into the bars/clubs you hope to get gigs in.

Only drama that happened when I was in a (crappy) band was we had a revolving door of vocalists.

^nah... we don't really want the fame thing... personally it's one big headache probably.

We just sit there try and make some decent music, we might hit up a local show but... with this "triangle of Back talking" I'm surprised the band is somewhat still together.

Well... heh.. here is the myspace... I guess(oh man...)

The old band "The newmans" broke up after a rightful reason... you see alot of the old people. The hippy looking kid, and the fire crotch are still in it(as am I(I was a Bass player on stand by if things got bad(and they did)). I help write the 1st song, the guitar rifts sounded kinda off(they still do) until I worked with them a little...  The bad thing, the singer is ALWAYS gone... it kinda sucks, we make a kick<butt> rift, but without him trying to think of something... it goes down hill and it unravels.   Song 1 is all me...

Labotomy

We're thinking of a new name... don't worry.

heh... high school drama's present whether you're in a band or not.

If your lucky and find good mature friends, it leaves when you go to college.  If you're unlucky like me, it follows you for at least a year after.

The music is decent, but the vocals are horrible.

Well equate region differences, here(where i live) you have to be 21 to get into any bar/club and that counts for bands as well.

I didn't believe the whole "high school drama thing" until last year.

I was waiting at my locker before class and three girls, probably in grade 9 or 10 start talking. The first thing I hear is: "you peeped her myspace" the second girl: "well I wouldn't have had to if you hadn't been writing mean comments about me"

The whole thing goes on and on like that until they are yelling, and then one starts to cry and runs away.

Lots of people never grow out of high school drama.

And I'm trying for a band so hard, but it's becoming a pain in the ass. If I was confident enough in my abilities, I'd advertise for members, but honestly I'd rather get one going with people who know me, so they're used to me/my styles. Plus blues just aint as popular as she used to be, which is a shame, because it's alot more diverse than most people think.

Anyway, good luck with the band, I'll listen to the clips when I can turn my speakers back on.

The bass player was terrible.  Also, did the timing seem a little off to anyone else on the first song?

Get a new vocalist.

You want Drama....Wait till you are a father with teenage daughters, whatever drama you think you are expieriencing now is nothing.
The Band thing has allways been fun, the p'g contests, the ego outplaying the talent. Watching and having to step in now and then in the boy's band is just a fun exercise. When a 59 year old has to cover lead guitar and vocals because of a difference of opinion p'g contest, great fun....."Do you have the time, to listen to me whine.............."

PS.. I got to get this act on YouTube, it is just hillarious for "who is the old guy" is usually question #1 at the gigs.

I think anytime you're in a band, you have to deal with egos and drama, whether the members are high schoolers or thirty-somethings. I think every group has at least one person who is the troublemaker that the rest of the band has to bend over backwards for.

yea, were really starting to get annoyed by the vocalist... once again he skipped out on us.... So I... well I might actually sing(oh god, I hate singing.) yea you might actually hear my voice with some of these songs that come up...

I really wish we could just record our Guitarist messing around... that kid is on his way to fame either it be threw us or someone else... I have NEVER been around some one who can just... Rip like that, I know there are a lot... and a lot better, but the kid is only 17 and wow, has some talent. The drummer is not bad for being 14 either, he needs to learn to go off what he wants not what the guitarist is doing... then in return I fallow the drummers lead... then the singer fallows the beat... Yea... me and the drummer need to get together and figure out something we can do and have our guitarist fallow us... but... that'll come later.

That was horrible. It's probably a good thing if your band stops existing....actually, remove the "probably"
