Topic: Networking is awesome.
We all know that this is the best way to meet and accomplish something.
So case in point, last night i was on FB talking to a guy who fronts a great 3 piece band around here (The Sunshine Wall), and mentioned my desire to put a punk band together (at age almost 52) and did he know anyone in my area who might be interested in bass and drums? He gave me a name (happens to be a booking agent), then that person shot me a name right in my town. So I look up Toni. She and I have many same music loves and we talked a long time and i shared some of my material with her. She was very interested and we are easily saying YES this can be a good project. So, I am officially forming PATENT APPLIED FOR (Punk Azz F*%k).
Wish me luck, I have only been in two real basement bands that never went anywhere. Toni has been in 3 or for gigging bands, knows the club scene, and the way around it. So ....WIN WIN.
It may take a few months to get a set and everything down, but its now or never to make it happen!
You can plug into a Marshall, but if you are not attacking it, it's just going to sound so-so. If the song doesn't grove, you are just bashing through chords” .
