Well, I've been in a band for about 5 months and we are pretty good. Are first gig (school thing) is coming up in March. Well we didn't have a lead singer until today, the bassist and I took turns at practices.

Anyway, I really don't want this girl to be our singer. I sort of think of her as a best friend but she is one the the most orrible people I know in retrospect.

When me and the bassist showed her our first song about 4 months ago all she said was "Shit". Then she tells the bassist we will never go anywhere and that we suck. But she was a friend so we got over it.

Now she's fallen out with her "cool" friends so she starts hanging with the bassist and I more. Now the bassist is in love with her. Seriously, IN LOVE. So today when she was being moody saying friends are pointless, (BTW they all because she did something to upset them all). So she asks the bassist to be the singer and he says yes with out consulting me or the drummer at all.

Now, here are the reasons she wants to sing (from the horse's mouth):

"So I'll be known around school"
"So I can be at the front"
"So I can be like Brian Molko"

The drummer doesn't really care.

My dream is to be in a band and her's isn't. She just wants to be popular. I mean, for a few hours a week I go to band practice and forget everything (things aren't good at home or school) and if she's there she will totally kill it for me, flirting with the basst and drummer non-stop and pushing the original band into the background. I love this band and reaslly don't want to quit What can I do?

I seriously want to but I think the bassist will follow and I want the original band to stay together.

Talk to the drummer and bassist about this. If they agree with you, then kick your new singer out of the band. If they don't want her out, then they probably aren't worth having around in a band. If they give up a possible life of music for a poser bitch, then they aren't worth the air.

^Metallica has taught those two alot about life.

Kick her out before the situation gets out of hand, but talk to your bassist about it first.

I would get rid of her man, unless she can actually sing... then keep her for the gig then give her the boot.

And tell your bassist to grow some balls man, and start thinking about the band.

Tell her that shes a bitch and she can do the following to become popular:

A) Blow every guy on the Football and/or Basketball team.
B) Kill herself in some grusome way, everyone will go "RIP <Insert name> and pretend to know and like her.
C) See plan A
D) If all else fails....

yeah, kick her out, shes a bitch from what uve said, and if u try to do it lightly then she'll wriggle out of it and still think shes in the band. I too have my bands first gig coming up in March and the bassist, hes amazing, but he seems a bit absent alot of the time so im not sure what to do, seems entusaistc enough i supppose, but yweah talk to the bassist, and if he wants to do hte bst for the band he will understand

I saw that you and that other guy had the same icon, so I was trying to refer to that.

Don't get me wrong, Metallica's pretty cool, but my post would've made more sense had 5 other people not posted at the exact same time.

Tell the bassist he's a jackass who just wants some weekend pussy and start a better band with the drummer.

if you say that its most likely you that will be going cos you made them pick
#24
^ I don't care. It shows what sort of friends they are if they pick her. I've known them both longer (I've even known the girl longer then they have too). Let's see how far they get without a fucking guitarist.

Her: What?
Me: You hit a wrong note you stupid whore

I dunno, you need to speak to the drummer and the bassist at the same time. Tell them how you feel about this band, see how THEY feel about it. If they're really serious, they're bound to understand. And if they don't, it probably won't matter much how this matter is resolved - it'll only be a matter of time until you run into another bump and it crashes down. If you guys are going to have arguments and fights over things, it doesn't matter how much you want it to work - it just won't, unless you're all really tight..

no just talk HONESTLY with your bass player and your drummer

explain the situation and they'll be cool with you or at least be more aware of things
