I'm With the Band



Mr. Peenee has confessed that he was a band fag in junior high school.

And since we’re on the teen bandwagon this week (see yesterday’s Teen Idols post,) we here at Infomaniac pose the following question…

Did YOU play an instrument in high school?

And do you play an instrument NOW?

  1. Band through Freshman year. Coronet, badly. Pretty good at marching though.

    Pocket trumpet now, badly.

  3. No band, vocalist only, show tunes & torch songs mostly (imagine)...

    Taught myself to play guitar in my twenties. I still play sometimes but I sing every day, show tunes & torch songs (imagine).

  6. Oh God don't start me up on this... spend my teenage years playing Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert et al. on the piano and now I'm ready to shoot anyone who will dare play "Für Elise"

    Then I switch to voice training and it was Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert again + Verdi, Rossini, Bellini, Puccini, Mascagni (God I hate Opera!!!). I wanted to be a baritone, my teacher said I was a tenor, so I quit. You'd better all thank me for this!

    Haven't played in more than 20 years and don't really miss it although I'd gladly get back to fingering a HUGE organ...

  7. I was a hardworking but utterly untalented piano student for ten years, and then in my debauched 20s was briefly a truly terrible lounge act.

    There is still a piano in the drawing room of the Villa Muscato, but it's mostly a holder for framed pictures and bibelots...

  8. No instruments, unless we count things like car aerials, illegal fireworks, roach clips, bongs and claw hammers. I was, however, in each and every one of the musicals, all four years, in starring roles (most notably Karen in All About Eve) - and sang solo parts in each. I was 'scouted' for Chorus, Jazz Ensemble, and the school feature group The Pony Pipers (gaaaaaaah)but turned it down because sheesh; I have SOME pride. But it's true; I have a lovely growly alto-tenor voice and I often annoy the dog with R/B, Soul and Blues classics.

  10. Why yes, thank you for asking. I played the skin flute in high school for private performance in the locker room for some. To this day I can still blow the flutes.....and all sizes too!

  11. Kabuki did not play an instrument. Rather, kabuki was (and is) an instrument of beauty and love. Kabuki never set fire to his high school and should be commended as it was filled with over-privileged middle class white idiots. Ick ick ick and yuck

  12. So let me get this straight, I am the only actual band fag here? How can that be?

    For the record, I played tuba, the least likely instrument known to man. I was dreadful. I never learned to read music, so I would make the other guys in the tuba section play first so I could hear how it was supposed to go and then I would play by ear.

  13. I was always happy to play on someone else's instrument

  14. Being that I dislike live theater AND suffer from a debilitating fear of guitars, I just decided to be a fag in high school, who dated a woman who was a future dyke, because her brother would run shirtless around her house whenever I came over to pick her up for a date.

  15. Instrument of beauty and love. Did kabuki mention that? Just checking.
