What's your opinion on playing in a group that is actually a solo project basically...like local guy has his name as the bandname, his songs etc, but expects you to contribute to rehearsal fees and do legwork, but if anything happened and the band became successful you wouldnt have any stake in the band.

Would you consider this a 'session' position or would you happily do it if they music was good?

If it was a 'session' job then I would expect to be paid.

I might do it for free if it's fun / music is good but I wouldn't be putting up money myself for it. That seems a little weird if you ask me.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

certainly wouldn't be putting in my money if he was geting all the recognition
They think they know who I am....all they know is I love to kill.

It's a great way to get out there.

People who play with successful bands, solo or otherwise, tend to have tons more luck in "making it"

Edit: ^ Rhoads had a lot of creative control with Ozzy. That said, if I was writing the songs and given credit, I guess I'd do it.

I dunno man I woud at the moment just treat like a normal band session. Because you won't become to succesful so quickly if things start to look good then yes demand some payment if his names going all over it. And yes I think that musicians under a solo project are genrally session musicians.

but ozzy osbourne wasn't just "some guy" it'd be completely different if TS said "oh by the way, the solo guy i'm playing with is robert plant/matt bellamy/bruce dickinson"

Also randy was relatively well known before he even got picked up by ozzy, he had 2 albums out and was full time gigging.

i would say +1 ninja slay human

Well, if it's like how Ozzy treats his members, getting them involved in the writing process and allowing them some maneuverability, then yes. Otherwise, it would depend.

I would definitely play as long as I didn't have to put any money in.

It wouldn't be a session job unless you were being payed.

I would play in a band that was named after the bandleader, as long as I could contribute to the songs: writing my own parts and suggesting things. I would have no problem being in a band where one person wrote most of the music, as long as the rest of the band (including me) did a little bit, and got credit for it.

This. Not to mention the exposure it'd get you if they were fairly well-known. Even a well known local solo-artist would be great.

I've played drums for a solo project before. Basically, he wrote all the music, and then I played drums did some backing vocals and another guy did some harmonica/bass parts, while he played acoustic and sung. It was pretty standard, nothing special but great fun and he's a really good friend of mine. It was only for a handful of shows, so I didn't mind putting in for rehearsal time, and because he was a good friend I know I would've got credit had the project ever got that far. But it was never really intended to so it was just a laugh really. www.myspace.com/tomsingssongs I think it was, if anyone's interested.
#22
i would and if and only if he/she gets famous i would sew for not getting any writing credit then make a crap load of money and profit from the albums and what not.

hehe taco

I'd trust my instinct. You'd know if you were getting ripped off: playing music and contributing and getting no recognition, credit and thanks.

When it gets that way, confront the leader.

I wouldn't have a problem with that, but I like to write music anyway, so I'd rather go into it as a collaboration.

EDIT: I mean I'd have no problems if the leader was recognising, crediting and showed appreciation.
