Ok so my friends wants to make a band and our friends wnat to join ( easy eh) but this is where is gets to the bad part.

The bassist hates the lead guitarist cause the lead guitarist stole the bassist's girlfriends last summer and the lead guitarist hates the bassist cause the bassist broke the leads MG series DKMGT dinky cause of the gf thing (yeah they went to court)

so anyways the bassist is as good as the lead guitarist and the lead guitar is as the bassist so the question is who or what is more important in a band?

The future of our band is in your hands.

eh...i've found that decent bass players are hard to come by but most bands really don't utilize bass players very well...it's all about which instrument you think will play a bigger role in your bands i guess

finding a good bass player is like finding a girl who can down a 12 inch.

finding a good guitar player is like finding a hooker in vegas.

leave them both out.no matter who u pick the other would end up hating u.but if u have to pick go with the bassist he's probably less likely to steal your gf.

Take the bassist, bass provides rhythmic backbone to your music, even if most people don't notice. What do lead guitarists do? They stand there and look good and most of the time are no better at guitar than your "rhythm" guitarist.

Go with the bassist. It would be easier to find a good guitarist than a good bassist.

ok, here is the solution:

you let both of them fight until one of them lies on the ground. then you let the person that lost the battle join the band.
believe me, the guy that won the battle will be somewhat pissed...

The truth comes out, everyone loves a bass player.

The day being a lead guitarist died, long live.

The bassist, unless you know someone else who can play as good as him and the lead guitarist is just amazing. But it is usually harder to find a bassist then a guitarist. So keep the bassist.
