I once read an article on how to become a drummer, and it went something like this.....

1. Get a drum kit
2. That's it, you're a drummer.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

True story, I bought a new tap on Saturday. I asked the guy if he could recommend anyone to instal it for me and he thought about it for a while then said “a plumber”.
I beat him to death with the tap.

Grading term papers right now and a student argued that singers, because they don't play musical instruments, are considered lesser figures. I responded that singers aren't the second-class citizens of the music world; that would be drummers.

Also, their voice is an instrument! But, yes, you are right about drummers.

The singer is also the one who almost everyone stares at. It's not a bad position.

Singing is fucking hard. It's not like you know you'll hit the right note because your finger is depressing the string at the right point. I guess brass instruments are similar. When I listen to demos of shit that I record, I can always hear my voice bend to be in tune on the first note. I guess you can train yourself to not be that way, but it's not natural for me.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

You have to achieve a Neil Young/Frank Sinatra bliss of turning your off-key croaking into a virtue.

You shouldn't bother trying to sing in tune if you can't. Just let what ever naturally comes out come out and work with that. Because this is how you sound.
