I'm a lead guitarist. Basically I'm the main musical writer in my band, though I can write lyrics if I want too. TBH the rest of my band is useless and they all rely on me to write stuff; our lead singer can't do **** and sucks live, but he can sing. I'm the only thing that brings new ideas to band really.

I have the personality to be a front man of any kind, I really would LOVE to be one. It takes me no effort to get out there and talk to people. All I really want to do is play guitar, sing, have everyone look at me (I'm not quite self-centered I just like to get attention ). In any case, I can't sing but I wish I could

What can I do?

Learn to sing, and kick out the singer, or tell him to suck it up, and you can do a few occasional songs. And, tell your bandmates to be a real band and do some work!

Do what Krist Novoselic did, he would get drunk out of his mind and do totally stupid stuff. You shouldn't get drunk though, just do crazy stuff.

tell your frontman that for your band to reach the next level, he has to start acting like one.

alternatively, you could go spotlight stealing. its possible to have two frontmen in a band, or have someone other than the singer who gets all the spotlight.

i mean look at pete wentz. he has no discernible musical talent, yet he's more well known than patrick stump?

why?

because he acts like a frontman.

so go!

Just let the frontman sing
but tell him he needs to engage the crowd, and show him some examples
work together as a team and all the attention will be on you and him

also, if you are big on getting attention, during solos go to the middle of the stage, or engage the crowd in some way while playing the song

I agree with changing your musical associates. It seems as if you're at a different level to them and could benefit by jamming with other people more of your experience.
Of course, if you can't sing there's no use trying to be a singer. You could do backup vocals perhaps, but I'd suggest don't try to do everything by yourself. If you want it to only be you performing then go solo; but a band is always better. Don't try to steal the limelight too much but rather secure your place, through your performance and composition, as a member of the whole, not the whole itself.

Well....

AC/DC

Lead singer = Brian Johnson

Frontman = Angus Young, lead guitarist

It can be done.

Or The Who, their lead singer is the frontman, and the guitarist is just as much. Back then, even the drummer was out there. Just smile, look at the crowd, and act slightly crazy. You don't need to be the singer to be the frontman, you don't even need 1 and only 1 frontman.

You could invest in a cheap keyboard, like I did and teach yourself to sing. It's not too difficult to sing basic melodies. Just play a note and sing it.
