UG has been around for awhile, and there are a few guitarists here, so Im thinking someone of some fame had, at sometime, a UG profile.

What Im asking is if anyone knows of any band's members who are/were on UG. As in, bands that recieve radio play, magazine articles, album release parties, etc. I just think itd be cool.

And surely, between a million guitarists, there has to be one not fail.

I am sorry to say, but your musical dignity disappoints me.

Listen to them first, u will understand afterwards... Getting big cuz of daddy or disney isn't even close to a hardworking band gigging everywhere and spreading the name out. If "success" was define by their version of "successful", I'ld rather be a beggar on the street.

Although I do understand that for every genre, there is a fanbase, but they kinda pushed it too far towards one side, that it got the other side turn extremist towards them (as what I am doing here )

I'd pay 10 bucks to see The Jonas Brothers cruising their way past you in their limo filled with chicks and hot wings and champagne while you starve with 6 cents in your beggar cup.

I never said money is bad, but there has to be a compromise between dignity and money (i.e Why bands do death metal, while others do more... purely money related music (think very bad rap, or very lame pop like the jonas bros)).

Those who devote their lives to music must have came to the conclusion of a higher thought of musicianship; something that relates to a person's mental power. It's like thinking how music can truly be related to human psychology.

If u chose to go to berklee, then u must have devoted a lot of time into music, and thus I never expected u to support the jonas fags vs. a person u don't even know. I do not dislike them for their wealth status, but I do loathe them for their absolute non-musicianship they incorporate into their songs. This is not even compensated by meaningful lyrics. A 4 powerchord song does not deserve to be higher than music that has been thought over and over with careful planning to actually GENERATE an atmosphere outside that of which a person may be in.

The mistake is not being rich, it's being rich without hard work; there is nothing to back them up infront of a man who has put a myriad of hours into his work. Their work comes out of nothing. A typical fan would be a 13 year old female teenager who's only concern would be their appearance, which either has been surgically worked on, or they were naturally born with. Where the hell is the work in that?

So who are you to judge what someone else' dignity is? Ever consider that maybe The Jonas Brother actually likes pop? Or maybe that rappers actually *omg* like rap?

If u chose to go to berklee, then u must have devoted a lot of time into music, and thus I never expected u to support the jonas fags vs. a person u don't even know.
If I'm going to Berklee, it means I'm a college student with real shit on my mind to deal with, like money and what the hell am I going to do when I'm done. I don't have time for angsty little teenage rebel ideals. Sure, I'm studying music because it's my passion, but it's also to make money. I don't care what you want me to write as long as you pay me. It's because I have a realistic perspective that I think it's ridiculous to hate on The Jonas Brothers. At the end of the day, they're making money doing what they like, they're happy. You're not.

Blah blah blah. Guess what? There are people who like their music. There are people who find enjoyment in their music. I don't think anyone gives a shit if some metal purist approves or not.

The mistake is not being rich, it's being rich without hard work; there is nothing to back them up infront of a man who has put a myriad of hours into his work. Their work comes out of nothing.
How the fuck do you know? Are you their biographer? And even if they did get lucky, why are you hating? Unless of course, you're green with envy.

Age group? REAlly? This entire thing started cuz I gave an opinion and then u bashed on it. Well in this case, if opinions can't be given or respected, it's ridiculous for anybody to hate on anything, no? So, everyone is supposed to live in a smooth, happy world... -_-

Yea, true, u will write for what they pay, can't blame u for that, ur tryna make a living. But deep down, aren't u more comfortable writing things over other things? It's like Picasso looking at a stick figure, he wouldn't reduce himself to such things.

Yeah, I like metal, and yea, I still think they're faggots, who the fuck r u to tell me about MY opinion and what ppl would think of it?

Well, not so much envy, more like "where the hell is our world going". And yea, it's pretty unfair that they got "lucky". It's not right to just "get lucky" for other hardworking musicians.

Whatever... this is going nowhere... We all have our opinions...

The guy from Kill Hannah was/is on here, as is Alejandro from Boyce Avenue and I'd call Kristofer Dahl pretty famous.

Hell_Metalist and Xiaoxi should both be quiet or make another thread for this(among the hundreds of "X vs Y" threads that already exist) to argue about this same old same old crap everyone is tired of hearing.

And this thread should be closed...obviously there's not gonna be any more "normal" answers around here any more due to the violent hijacking that has just recently occurred.


EDIT: I respect both of your views but I don't like these stupid arguments.

I don't think so, because most people here still dowload tabs etc. I don't think famous guitarists would that often do that
