there are probably many people trying to start a band,but too nervous of being turned down because of age.there are many people that get into bands at a really young age,but can only perform "kid material" and in not so serious ways,like being on nickelodion or something,ruining their future image.
personally,i would say if your between 16 and 45 then you could be in a successful band.

My sister is the singer of a band, where the members are between 21-26, while she is 14. And I'm willing to bet you wouldn't know if I didn't tell you otherwise. www.myspace.com/atilast

Define successful?

What kind of band?

If you want to be a rock star in the conventional sense, you should be between 17-25 and good looking when you start. How long you're allowed to stay at the party depends entirely on what kind of following you can maintain. The Stones aren't too old, but it seems Spacehog was too old about six months after they arrived. Go figure.

There is so much more to 'successful' than that, though.

So, what, exactly, are you asking?

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

whats ur definition of successful

sucess is pretty relative

do you mean like tour the world cuz if so you have to be a certain age to handle that
but nyone can be in a band and be succesfull because they are having a good time with some friends

just to clear up a few things, the 17-25 CT pointed out is a pretty good average, but there are exceptions. plenty of rockers have "made it" on a national level pushing 30. simlarly, there always seems to be a new hanna montana right around the corner at 16, 15, 14... isn't there a pretty good signed metal band out there right now made up of 13yo's? Blac Tide? or atleast they were 13 when they first got big.

Also, sure, Richards and Clapton and Page, etc., get to rock until they die, but that's only because they achieved what you could call "legendary" status much earlier in their careers. You never, NEVER hear of some 50yo dude being "discovered."

if you're just going for playing some good music and to hell with fame/fortune/other pipe dreams, then you're not too old until it's too loud... whch is fortunate, seeing as how by then you'll be going deaf.

Successful band to me = getting girls, drinking, having fun playing live

What age? <Insert legal drinking age for your country here, then minus 2>

^ That age and above till death + 2.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
