Hey folks, I just thought I'd ask how many people are in your band?

Six for us. One to screw it in, and five to tell him how he should have done it.

six for us--one too many (need to lose the female vocalist, or should I say "diva".

Learn the lyrics for her two main songs? Maybe.
Sing in tune? huh?
Being punctual--well I showed up, didn't I?
Equal share of the split--I showed up, didn't I?

:rolleyes:

We've got 5, but our female vocalist/auxiliary percussionist really only counts as about 2/3 - she doesn't sing (or play) on about a third of our songs, and doesn't really seem to want to get more involved. But she's still one of the band.

We're a 3 piece - no room for dead wood here! Fortunately we don't have any!

MMmmm! Although I'm in two bands, the poll won't let me make two entries.

Alas, I am dispossessed!!

I'm in between bands, but usually I'd say let's call a qualified electrician, just to make sure whether the 'old' bulb is vintage or not and to get a new one suitable for our music and set up correctly for our way of playing, no??

One to screw it in, one to feel bad because he is not the one screwing it in, one to complain about the way that it is being screwed in, one to call us at the last minute to let us know that he cannot make it because we've screwed in too many lightbulbs recently, and one to trip over the ladder which makes the first guy smash the lightbulb.
