I think maybe that's said because semi- to full-professional bands are under a lot of pressure, and that tension can cause friendships to break up. Much like how if you date someone whom you've been good friends with and then break up, your friendship will likely never be the same.

Then again, I've never been in a band. Assign to my opinion the proper amount of shits.

There's nothing wrong with being in a band with your friends, just so long as everyone in the band realises that as far as the band is concerned, you are 'business partners' first, 'creative partners' second and 'friends' last.

DO take every opportunity to play practical jokes upon the drummer, this is traditional and traditions are important.

The way I see it it's: "Don't let a good friend who just isn't really a good musician join your band".

Have fun.
Sounds kinda gay, but being in a band which you aren't enjoying sucks the big ones. Even if you don't really like the music, if you're having a good time then it's all good.

Write music not breakdowns. I mean if you want to throw a breakdown in there somewhere then fine but your music shouldn't be 100% breakdown. You gotta try a little harder than that.

Let me expand upon this
-One breakdown per hundred songs you write
-One
-1 ****ing breakdown in all of your songs
-that's it
-Breakdowns are annoying
-You know what? no breakdowns, for any song, for any band, ever
-No Breakdowns
-Ever
-That is all

That's funny how some cool metal bands actually had good breakdowns in their songs (I noticed them in Metallica, Nightwish songs), and they were not just lame open string w**king in Drop C as modern -core bands play.
