How does one become a roadie?
 
I've been watching Saxondale all day.

I like manual labor and I can get a van if I have to. I would also like to have a classic Mustang when I get older and kill mice. Admittedly, I could do without the fat girlfriend.

How do I become a roadie?

You don't choose the roadie life. The roadie life chooses you.

such is life in motherland

I also beat Brutal Legend twice if that helps.

i'd recommend just living in squalor and associating with the dregs of society. maybe work as a bouncer at a real heroin-y bar or be a trucker. you're bound to get your foot in the door sooner or later.

Probably through a lot of connections.
And to make a lot of connections, you'd probably have to wh*re yourself out as much as possible.

I was already going to.

Win-win!

Suck a guitar player's dick, then be like 'yo, if you let me be a roady you can have that for free.'

Step 1) lose all hope

Get in a car.
Smoke weed.
You're on a roadie.

Actually, being a stagehand at concerts and events is a really cool job that can pay very handsomely if you put in the hours. You have to apply to your local IATSE group (international stage working union, quite a legitimate setup) and sort of climb the ranks through there. It's not like the olden days at all, you have to have certain tools and safety equipment before you show up to the jobsite, and in a lot of cases you have to have experience in a trade like Electrician or Carpenter. Do some research, it's a good gig!

Don't just become a roadie... I worked in corporate events and set up a whole bunch of gala dinners and bands. Get into live sound engineering. That way you set up, operate, pack up. Thats the way I went. Except I was lighting instead of sound.

Dude, Chuckles.

Be friends with the band.

Ask a band? I take it that you have a driving licence?
