Re: Knowing your band's lyrics?
Through repetition I know most of the words to the songs we play, but I didn't really make an effort to learn them, except where the drum parts cue off the lyrics.
Funny story though - I once was asked to audition for an originals band after the singer heard me play. I auditioned with the guitarist, basically, though the singer was there - I think she sang, but I didn't have a monitor and couldn't really hear the words. Anyway, I got the gig, and we started preparing to record an album. Only then did I realize I had joined a Christian rock band! Not really my thing, but I stayed with that gig for about two years. :-)
