drummer/vocalist/sick Mick Foley-style pro-wrestling bumpist.

Everyone in our band except one sings. I don't see the point of having a "lead singer" that doesn't play anything else and do something to enhance the music. That's just me though.

You don't think strutting enhances the music?

Hmmm...
I'm a music fan/songwriter/singer/guitarist/drummer/bass player.
I'm waaay better at being obsessed with someone elses music than I am at actually doing it myself. I started playing the guitar when I was 12 but didn't really seriously start playing it until....well, like last year I guess.
Making a record in a real studio made me realize that I was a total faker on the one instrument I was supposed to be good at.
I got thrown on the drums in 1996 since, out of the four of us wanting to rock, I was the least sucky. Since I stopped drinking everyday and smoking a pack a day my drumming has improved dramatically--owning my own kit has also helped. I can play guitar a certain way pretty well but I 've picked up several different drumming styles from the music I listen to, so maybe those two should be reversed.

Yep, I'm a switchie. Some times it's my left hand, most other situations it's my right. It usually matters what side of the dirty clothes hamper I sleep on... Damn, that's such a WJJO response, I'm proud of myself...

Guitarist/vocalist/bassest/guitarbass hybreded thingest/banjoist/mandolinist/drumist/vibrophonist.

I hack on the piano/trombone.

And would definitely not consider myself a hack on the skin flute. I'm damn near pro.

I take far too much pleasure in playing instruments that I'm not that technically proficient in....I can play the Saxophone and the Bass in my sleep at this point, so of course all I want to play is guitar and keyboard. If I ever get too good at those, I'm a legendarily terrible drummer.....
my shitty drumming is the stuff of legends. The elves still sing of my shit-ass drumming.......

I think Blunt's got me beat (pun intended). I'll still show for auditions though. A guy's gotta know who all the cocksuckers are out there.

The auditions should be open call.
All those young men enjoying themselves, can you beat it?
