: Awesome! I'm trying to get my band to do an Iron Maiden or Rush song, but no one likes them in my band except me..The yoko of the band was telling me that Rush isn't really music, and Geddy Lee is nothing but "just a musician" and that all they play is music to show off..she's pissing me off, I'll beat her with the new bass that I'm gonna get but not sure of because no one replies to my posts...
: now reply to my post
Your band is afflicted with a condition called "Chick Singer Disease"; what you need to do is call yourself Paul and get the band to do "Get Back" (which McCartney supposedly aimed at Yoko Ono).
Just curious, what kinda stuff *does* your band play? If it's, say, a lounge gig or a country band, obviously you're not gonna to get your way, but if it's a band where something like that would fit, do what you can.
What you're gonna have to do is to go through all your Iron Maiden ("Iron Maiden? EXCELLENT!") and Rush stuff, and find whatever tunes come the closest to what your band is doing, and try to convince the rest of the band to try those tunes.
Also, what does the *rest* of the band think of Iron Maiden and Rush?
Hope that helps!
