heres something that i think nikki sixx and mick mars (motley crue) did when they were looking for a singer and drummer
they checked out local bands and poached the singer and drummer they liked and became Motley Crue  :D

In a way thats kinda how GNR got together too

Otherwise i'd recommend doing a search for a singer show on VH1

If youve got any songs instrumentally worked out recording them could be good, then singers can get an idea of what they'd be working with

That sounds like a plan.

My method was to stand around the dance floor of a rock bar or club and see who makes the biggest tit of themselves mouthing along to the lyrics. Turned out to be my bass player so its back to square one.

Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars should have kept looking...  Crue are a great band, but Vince's voice?  :?

You could do what my old band did, get very drunk at rehearsal, so drunk you don't give a shit about anything, one of you take the mic and see where it goes.  It worked for me, I don't play guitar anymore.

vince had a good voice - but when it came to live shows he is just pure lazy

a singer has to be great in the studio and on stage

i dont like vince neil anymore
