To quote whoever wrote that line for Will Ferrel, I have no idea what to do as a lead singer onstage. Actually, I'm fine with my hands. (I just thought it would be a suitable title) Anyway, what--as the dedicated lead vocalist--am i supposed to do during an extended guitar solo?

Turn to the side or face the drummer and just bounce to the beat. Have a good time, smile, get with the music.

Or go watch some live Oasis videos. Liam is a riot.

Quote by Retribution
Step back, just enjoy the music.

DON'T EVER AIR GUITAR! NEVER!

That is the worst thing I've ever seen, a singer air-guitaring to a solo.

They certainly know what they are talking about.

heres a good tip, watch legendary bands, watch how the great frontmen throught the history of rock carry themselves in stage or even off stage. Im not saying to you to be a copy cat for someone. but just watch and learn from the legends, you might pick up a thing or two, specially what to do during guitar solos. Go to You Tube. So these are some bands to watch that had great frontman who dont usually play instrument, (or sometimes.)regardless of what genre of music they played in a random order. Rolling Stones (Jagger);The Who (Daltrey) Aerosmith(Tyler);Yes(Anderson); Led Zeppelin(Plant);Deep Purple(Gillan);Judas Priest(Halford);Queen(Mercury);Black Sabbath(Osbourne); Uriah Heep(Shaw);Ramones(Joey); Van Halen(Roth or Haggar);U2(Bono); to name a few. Rock on brother!

Don't put your hands in your pockets. Don't play air guitar. If you find yourself wanting to do those things, grab the mic like you're going to sing and hold it. That will look less stupid than airguitar, and you won't look bored like if you had your hands in your pockets.

jump around on the stage, go near others and "rock" with them.... headbang, whatever!

(If you're metal.... else, I don't know)

You could run offstage like Axl Rose does everytime there's a solo (I think he still does that, I know he does that on the UYI I & II DVDs).

Just jump off stage and start dancing with the crowd. They'd love it, and your guitarist would hate it.

Or!

You could stand their like Ozzy did on the Iron Man video and bob your head like a tiki doll.

going for males ( heavy vocals ) and female ( the pretty stuff )

All you gotta do is stand back, let the soloist do his thing, and enjoy yourself.

I have no idea how that list got through without Iron Maiden (Harris or Di'Anno), especially because Judas Priest is there.

Still, good list. My suggestion would be to do the "Mic dance", made famous by Freddy Mercury, Paul Rodgers, and some other guys.

Do what Bruce Dickenson(Iron Maiden) did and lift the guitarist on your shoulders and run around.
