inspired by a discussion me and my sister had...

would you play guitar/bass/drums/whatever for an artist you really don't like, if they paid you? like say you are a studio musician, and the jonas brothers/hannah montana/any other artist/band you don't like, wanted to hire you,would you do it?

Yeah, it'd pay great. I'm such a sellout.

I guess it depends on the pay but in the end i'd be doing something that I love and thats playing music. So yes I would.
#10
Hannah Montana --> No because she's stupid
Miley Cyrus ----------> Yes because she's hot
Jonas Brothers -----> No because they suck
Dragonforce ---------> Yes because they rock (but i would suck compared to them)

and yes i know Hannah and Miley are the same person. But Hannah is just her dumb blonde alter ego (no offense to blonde girls)

I definitely would. I've played some pretty bad music for free in my school's band, and doing it would prly lead to connections in the music industry.
#14
For me, it would depend on the style of music, and the pay...I'm not a sellout, but I would play for a band as long as their style is something I can enjoy. Also, if the pay was really good, I'm sure I'd be willing to play for bands with styles far different than mine . There are limits however lol (no way I'd play for hannah montana )

I'd totally play for the Jonas Brothers if they were paying me. Hell, I'd give 'em head if they paid me.



On another note, Yes I would, because no matter what genre you are playing or with who you will learn something from it.

Yes, definitely. It's too hard to make a living as a musician, there's no room for your musical preferences to get in the way of money.
We're only strays.

of course. if your a session musician, that's your job. it doesnt matter how much the music sucks, if i'm making a living off playing my guitar, i'd be happy

I don't really dislike any artists, so I wouldn't mind. It would be cool to collaborate with artists of different genres anyway.

Personally, if the Jonas Brothers came to hire me, I would absolutely tour with them. Granted, I hate the music, I'd probably tour for a year or so, get loads of money, buy a ferrari, date a supermodel, and then quit and make my own real band.

So yes, I would, but at the same time I'd never willingly stay long enough to solidify myself as a JoBro, just long enough to reap the benefits of it.
