If you're in a band for a some years everyone their part in the band is sort of settled, and respect and see the advantages of it. If your bass player is the guy never says anything and just plays don't put him a leadership-position and take the few things he finds so important that he says them seriously.

Well, you see, you used to have to have this weird thing called "talent" to be a successful metal band. My dad told me about it. Geez old people and their "talent"

And 'tallica and such are grandfathered in, so from now on my rule stands. All the good breakdowns have already been used, such as "EEE EEE EEE EEE", "DDD DDD DDD DDD", and today the ever poopular "CCC CCC CCC widdley woodley CCC CCC CCC"

Don't move in together. It can be great for a while, jammin all the time, but eventually you break up.

Yeah, I think "Don't be in a band with your friends" is really about making sure you're in a band with someone because of their music, not just because you're friends.

Show up to rehearsal. Thats an important one, haha. And actually be willing to play once you get there.

Get a job so you can actually afford gear. Thats important so no 1 person is buying everything, and if you all have cheap gear, you aren't going to sound good.

Lose the ego.

But still, bands need to learn to use breakdowns sparingly, it's like suicide in metal songwriting, as in it's the easy way out.

-Don't name your band (your name) and friends, or anything like that. Unless you are amazingly talented or famous, you will sound like a douche.

-Be reliable for practices and shows. There's nothing more annoying than someone telling you that a show has been cancelled at the last minute for some bullshit reason.

-Be good with communication. If someone texts or messages you about something important, don't leave them hanging.

-Don't try to micromanage everything, because eventually, your band will get tired of you bossing them around.

Nah srsly, I appreciate it's not for everyone, but it's been working pretty great for us for years.

OT: Treat everyone you meet with respect. It just makes everyone's life easier and more enjoyable when people say "Oh yeah, [insert band name], they're a bunch of really great guys". You get a twatty reputation if you turn up to a gig and e.g. slag off the sound guy when you can't hear yourself.

Rules of the band I'm in. I've broke one of them so far:

-No interband sex.
-Don't bring AIDS into the band.
-Don't fart on the producers chair.
-Don't sleep with the lady who works with the label.

We keep adding more as and when necessary.

And you just got even more pretentious...

OT:
Don't become a "rock star" before you actually are one (meaning before millions enjoy your music). No one likes it when you act all superior and such. Remain humble and down to earth, and more people will like you (as a person and a band).

Edit2:
Don't criticize other bands while out in the crowd (before or after the gig). No one wants to hear how you think Coheed suck because (insert reason here). You especially better not criticize the bands who are also playing that same night. Just keep your damn mouth shut and play your music already. No one likes an "Yngwie"*.


*If you don't get it, remember that Yngwie Malmsteen regularly bashed other guitar players back in the day.

This is a good example of breakdowns.


Here how they're basically a simplistic rhythm section? Yeah, apparently, they're "br00tal", man. I don't mind the idea of breakdowns, but a lot of Metalcore*/whatever-core bands just go way overboard with them.

*Not to be confused with Metallic Hardcore, which is actually what true Metalcore is.

Don't form a prog metal band. You'll never find members who can play it, or anything aside from 4/4 for that matter. I know from experience.

And don't form a metalcore band, because then you'll just sound like a douchebag no matter what you do.

No drinks (we had booze) by the studio amps...

"We broke that rule, well, I didn't, but this guy did; one of us footed the repair bill, I paid for the room." -- It was nuts.

It looked like we got high/drunk and trashed the place.
They gave us the bill but didn't ban us, that was very cool, also, there were people who we hung out with and stuff, like, girls with booze... On top of the pool table there in the lobby with this fit girl; I should have made out with her drunk horny ass laying on top of me but, I was also playing manager as well. LMAO.
