EDIT: We play classic rock, our own mix of Aerosmith, Guns, and Motley, with a touch of metal on the drummers part, which is why I asked about these three in particular, feel free to suggest your own.
Also, this is not to replace the actual music, but just to add another dimension to our live shows
So, my fellow Pit Monkeys, I come to you to ask about fashion, which I'm sure I'll get several...interesting responses, but I'm hoping for a few serious ones as well, so here goes.
How much (note: this is for a live show, not to replace focus on the music, but just an added feature of the show) does fashion for a band affect your choice of listening to them/seeing them live? In other words what sort of style of dress do you think is the most rock n roll/[insert musical genre here]? This is not to limit you, but to give you a basic idea of what I mean.
Do you think Steven Tyler's Gypsy sort of dress with the scarves and such is a good choice?



Or do you prefer the more bad-ass rocker look of Axl Rose?


Or do you like the Glam look of Motley Crue?


I am trying to decide which would be the best style to form my stage get-up around (not copy, mind you, I realize that this is 2009, not 1986), so I decided to ask you guys haha.

I prefer the look of properly embedded images.

It depends on your style of music. If you play metal, go for the metal look. But if you play classic rock, go for the hippie kind of look. Or if you play modern rock, look like a ***. It really all depends on the music you play.

I suggest you model your band after the keyboard player from dragonforce

Yeah, it had fuc/k in the name, so UG censored it, so the image didn't work.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

Throw on a pair of dickies and your favourite t-shirt. Stay cool and focus on your playing. People will notice more if you sound **** than than look ****. so its best to sound good first

while people should only care about the music, Image is a big thing and it really depends on the type of music you play...but whats most important is wear something comfortable that you can wear without thinking "are people liking what i am wearing" also make sure its something you can move around in....and not somthing to thick cause if you are on a stage pounding drums lugging around guitars or just moving around interacting with the crowd you will get hot quickly.

I concur.

I prefer when a band just looks normal.

Pretty sure they are all the same person, and why the hell is that guy wearing flip flops?

Anyway, everything TS posted looked stupid, just wear a t shirt and jeans, or if you must dress up, wear a suit, you can't go wrong in a good suit.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
