I know what you mean :/ our rhythm guitarist is an decent singer, he just can't play electric and sing at the same time. But bassists are hard to find in Scotland anyways. And singers. We actually thought the band was going really well after 4 bassists before getting "I don't want to be in the band after the first gig, I find bass boring." Sad thing is, he's actually a really good bassist :/
