What did you do?
Fair enough! I guess it depends on the definition of roadie/crew. My friend was lucky in essentially meeting a band early in the career that went on to become massive relatively quickly. So he started as FOH in department head position rather than spending years as a grunt working his way up.
Mostly made a nuisance of myself.
When I wasn't behind a motion picture camera I was a side guy. Strings, sometimes horn...and backing vocals.
I can do all four, not equally well though. A listener would rather I stick to two or three before I sing.
Been told I have a "Johnny Cash" quality to my voice from a friend being polite.
The first band I was in already had two guitar players who were better than me, so I ended up on bass. Never regretted it.
It depends on what sort of music we'd be playing. If it's blues or rock, I'd want to play guitar, but I could probably get by on bass. If it's pop, I'd be alright on guitar, although it's not what I'm best at - same with metal if it's not too heavy and shreddy. I think I could probably play anything in a punk band, except maybe drums.
If it's jazz or classical, however, I'm in trouble.
I can’t understand why cowbell isn’t listed . As far as I know there’s always a need for more cowbell. I have proof.
i'd be the bassist.
And the guitarist.
And the drummer.
And even the keyboard player from time to time.
Of course, 'wildly successful' in my chosen genre(s) means a modest income that gives you the ability to pay your rent
and even eat every so often while still retaining the respect of your peers, so...
I picked the drummer as if we're talking superstar status I have a chance at having some privacy.
For Me all but singing, Guitar #1 Then Drums, then Bass
Wots a bass player?
That would be the guy laying in a drunken coma behind the wheelie bins...
Is this a trick question?
The Bagpipe player. I could also double on banjo and accordion.
Oh!, I wondered who he was
I can sing if I have to and I have programmed, but don't own or play, drums.
I do, however, play both guitar and bass. I love both, but if I had to pick one to be well known for in a successful band, I'll go with bass.
For me it would be singer. I am a mediocre guitar player at best but have been asked to front five different bands as the singer. Never once been asked to be the guitar player only.
It appears the drums are taking a back seat in this poll.
