You be Jimmy Page, and he can be Robert Plant with guitar playing abilities.

If your writing good music then why does it matter? It doesnt matter whose fronting you, as long as your good you should get noticed.

Don't be an attention whore. It will just bring the band down, if your band is better as a whole then you will get more attention anyways. Besides, frontmen aren't always the vocalists.

If he's the better singer, let him sing . Doesnt mean you have to let him hog all the glory

Pete Townsend wrote most of the music for The Who even though Roger Daltry sang most of it. You can write and play.

You sound like a HUGE glory hog so I suggest you dont make a band at all because it will most likely end up in ruin with an attitude like that.

Let him sing, but alternate, I love doing that, one of you does the chorus, one verse or however.

Let the better sing do his job. You can still go crazy on stage and still lead the band.

You can have more than one frontman...the Stranglers had Hugh Cornwell and JJ Burnel and that worked fine.

They both did lead vocals (as did Dave Greenfield for a few songs) although Hugh being the better vocalist did more.

Don't be afraid to vary it around a bit.

You can still sing some verses. It gives a contrast to the song and I think it sounds pretty cool. Or you could do backup whenever appropriate.

But if he's a better singer, then I would give him the lead voice part.

Split it up. Pull a Lennon/McCartney or a Daltrey/Townshend or a Doherty/Barat.

I believe a knife fight to the death is in order.


Two singers are usually better than one IMO, but only if you both compliment each other in tonal values and melody. E.G. if one of you sings like Kurt Cobain and the other sings like Adam from Taking Back Sunday, then you would probably suck as a duo.
