Well, would you?

Lets say you had all the technical skill you needed to join the band, and you got along pretty well with everyone, would you do it?

My favorite band as of now is Protest the Hero...but if I had the chance, i dont think I would join. One, I dont think I could write songs like they do...they songs would end up sucking. And two is because I enjoy waiting for whatever they put out and probably wouldnt enjoy their music anymore if i was in the band.

So what are your thoughts on that? Would you join your favorite band/artist?

Yeah....
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Tony Iommi doesn't accept rhythm guitarists. That's why Geezer switched to bass.

I have too wide a taste (PRETENTIOUS, ALERT!) to pin one favourite band; but I couldn't do it if it meant booting another member of the band!

Right now my "favorite" band would be Machine Head. I'd join them, sure. Their music is a lot like the music my own band makes. And FYI, I discovered them long after my band was formed.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

My favourite band could only improved by me joining them. Of course I would.


I kick Kirk Hammet's ass any day.

Who wants to be a rhythm guitarist if they're not singing? That is just shameless rape of one's ego.

You need to get a few prosthetic limbs for that - so they can all wah at the same time. Or use your Vermintide clones.

The beauty of it is I'd tape on one of those big wooden rulers D&T teachers have so that it's like one big pedal.

It'd be the UBERWAH.

Hanneman and King frequently share lead duties, do they not? It does not count.

I'll tell you who does frown though.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Worked for Frusciante, and he improved the Chili Peppers infinitely!

I definitely would, since I know most of the songs already!

I always thought Hanneman soloed very seldomly while Kerry took most of it, so I usually view him as the rhythm guitarist, but I'll make a new one.

And yes Malcolm frowns upon your words.

So does this man.

I'd never replace Froosh.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

That would be brain bending brutality. But, would you not want all the pedals to wah at slightly different times to each other so it sounds even more manic and brain crushing? Therfore the idea of using rulers is stunted. You need a mechanical system where each pedal depresses like a wave - one, then the next and the next. Creating a gradually stronger wah.

Jeff Hanneman does more lead work that King, hes way better as well, and he's written their best songs, too. King's just bald.

I wouldn't want to play guitar, but I think playing bass would be fun for NIN. I wouldn't have to worry about studio too much either

I wouldn't join Rush though, I'd ruin their flow.

Sorry, I was just a bit behind then. I must undoubtedly kill myself for my obvious incompetence.
