Glam Metal

Recommended Posts

Ok this is a massive shot in the dark, but here goes anyway!

I'm a Guitarist lookin to put together a Glam Metal band in Aberdeen. At the moment it'd just be for fun (but that could change). I'm looking for people into the likes of: L.A. Guns, Motley Crue, Crashdiet, Hanoi Rocks, Poison, Ratt.....etc etc.

But I'll have to warn anyone potentially interested (if any haha): I do want the band to Glam it up for the stage (see image for reference) crashdiet.jpg

We'll be playin covers, and originals as they come. I play mainly rhythm Guitar with a little lead, but I promise ya I can write crunchin Glam Metal riffs with the best of them! :up:

To get an idea of the sort of sound I'm going for (not exactly though) check out my other band Peep Show (based in Edinburgh): http://www.myspace.com/peepshowroxx

If interested, just reply here or PM, Cheers

keep watching TOTP 2

the 1980s Americans were a bit too fond of wearing wifies leotards and the 1970s Brits were just having a laugh with the make up,so bring it on,there is nae enough humour in music nowadays.

Wow! Ok I'm actually quite shocked at how well this has been recieved so far! Thus far I have 3 people up for it! Assuming all parties remain interested, we're only short of a spandex clad, screamin' lead singer!! Keep the replies comin!

ah the strip. i love the strip. i'm serious about singing though. if the donnas can cover too fast for love and strutter, aberdeen can have a mel fronted glam rock band. plus i have six inch red glitter platforms. what more do you need?

As with any genre though, there are leaders and shitty followers, it's the same for Glam Metal (leaders: Gn'R, Crue, Cheap Trick) and emo, or whatever you want to call modern rock/metal.

I'd be tempted to go for the bass playing position, but I dunno if I'd have the time/ability to do it right. And being in a band with my ex-girlfriend might pose oproblems...

Before those two get into arguing....

I could be a backing singer if you want one?! I wouldnt even have to perm my hair! It's already curly. And I have about 20 cans of hairspray!

Could be a laugh eh?

You're welcome to try out dude! I don't need someone who's gonna be the next Nikki Sixx, just someone with attitude and who can hold down a rhythm.

Well fuck me! I'm shocked to say the least! So far I have:

2 Guitarists / 2 Bassists / 2 Singers / 1 Drummer / 1 Back-Up singer interested!

Ok! This could be a lot of fun! Right, well I think I'll need to get a couple of jams on the go with everyone interested! I think Aberdeen needs this so very badly! I want to give the scene a good kick up the ass!
