Some gems from July posts on the San Diego Musicians page at craigslist.org:
"Seeking U2Heads to portray U2's Boy/October era in sight and sound...seeking a Bono, Adam, and Larry. The Edge portrayer position is taken. Wigs, attire, and equipment, similar to what U2 looked like and used at that time are mandatory, no exceptions.... This band is to portray the very early years of U2 when they played small venues and pubs, which is where we will play too."
"If you love hip-hop, R&B, and consider yourself a true artist, a local producer (with song/production credits) wants to breath life into your talent.... Please do not respond if you just started doing what you do yesterday, or if the only person to ever tell you you've got talent is your mama."
"We need a strong [female] vocalist that's sexy and powerful. I want tattoos and the pin-up girl look, ie Betty Page. I said sexy, so you should no [sic] that's within, not on the outside.... We also don't want a screamer. A little is ok, but that's it."
"Need a drummer, bass player and lead guitar to start up a Pretenders cover band. I would sing lead vocals and organize shows...open to branching out into more eighties stuff, not married to a Pretenders-only thing. I promise that I am a more-than-decent Chrissie Hynde knock-off."
"Metal/Rock band seeks vocalist...We like to stay positive and fairly intelligent, so no lame 'I wanna stabby rip stab stab myself' emo lyrics or stupid Satan murder death kill lyrics, and nothing lyrically that is a four letter word every other word."
"I play the flute and I need to find a band. Any kind of band. I just need to jam. Preferably on stage."
