Topic: what is the secret to become big
There are thousands of bands, playing real good. I was 5 years ago in a professional studio, in the basement of a good friend, once a member of a YUGOSLAVIAN band SMAK. I found his adress, in fact the whole information about that friend when the name of his band "popped up." In fact this band was HUGE in ex-Yugoslavia, performing together, not as first act, but main act with, the at that time still the original members, DEEP PURPLE. I recorded 2-3 songs, he told me that I could play very easy with most mainstream American bands. This is far the nicest compliment you can get.
But what is the secret to become big.
A stupid remark, I start playing with UYK, Guitarpix, James, Southpaw, Russel, Old doll, guitarpix, a dream I posted already, the love and joy to have a big chordian meeting.
This is just hypothetical, we all try to play and to give and share our musical aspirations.
So we have a band and what comes next?
Some great songs, are blown away by another band playing the same style, but they come from ZERO to HERO.
Southpaw has maybe the answer.
EXAMPLE: 5 bands, same level, good performers, same song, but 1 band gets famous.
- is it chemistry
- the looks
- WHY are some bands so big?
This question follows me since years, after my Canadian holiday.
There are a lot of bands, playing bad, because the guitar player knows only a few chords, and a lot more.
What is the receipt to see a band, with less potential, playing only 2 years, becoming BIG, while another, having skilled players, stay low profile.
- MY GUITAR PLAYS EVERY STYLE = BLUES, ROCK, METAL, so I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT.
