So since I was 8 the only thing ive wanted to do was play in a big rock band. Ima hard rock singer and I hitch hiked to Hollywood a year ago.

My dream is called “the hard rock revolution”- I ma til’ death guns n roses fan and I want to find a band like that and really make it big.

Years of diet, drug, and alcohol abuse and left me very unhealthy, with absolutely nothing done whatsoever Im finally getting myself together and am ready to go, but I keep thinking that the 3 years I wasted killed my opportunity. I’m turning 21 in 42 days, which is when id be completely ready to “start.”

My line of thought goes that 21 is too late to really start trying to get into a music scene with an idea of large scale success, because the early 20s are the ages of prime marketability , and It takes a few years to find the right musicians, write the right songs and gain enough attention to gain a national following. If you start doing this at 18/19, you will be still in your early 20s when you release a debut and starting getting big

But if you start at 21, you’ll be 23/24 by the time you start “making it”, by which time you’ve lost those prime ages of your eaely 20s


I also think it’s harder finding musicians from 21-23 with the do or die attitude . at 18/19 people are gung-ho and unafraid, by 21 people have started giving up or lowered their expectations and are more dedicated to girlfriends, careers, etc.

I think you should prefill out some applications to mickie d's for when this doesn't work out at all.

Yeah, pretty much no band has ever been popular once they got to age 24 or older. People just aren't interested in anyone not in their early 20's. Thats why if there are any bands with people 24 years old or older, they're pretty much just riding on the one good album and tour they had in their early 20s. All music made by anyone over the age of like 22 is pretty much not even worth listening to.

If you start at 21 you won't start making it until you're dead or at all if you're planning some "hard-rock revolution"

Maybe start working on a time machine so you can get back to the late 80's when people thought a "hard-rock revolution" wasn't the most ridiculous thing you could claim to be aiming for.

In the age of the interwebs, it's damn near impossible for a single genre to become the focus of the entire music world.

Why all the negativity? Doesn't hurt to give it a shot, but at this time of your life don't make it a priority. Get in a band, enjoy having a good time writing a music and playing gigs and if it happens it happens. But at least have SOME kind of realistic backup!
TOMAHAWK!

You're giving yourself too many rules:

"But if you start at 21, you’ll be 23/24 by the time you start “making it”, by which time you’ve lost those prime ages of your eaely 20s"


"I also think it’s harder finding musicians from 21-23 with the do or die attitude . at 18/19 people are gung-ho and unafraid, by 21 people have started giving up or lowered their expectations and are more dedicated to girlfriends, careers, etc."

I don't see why you only have to stick to one thing completely and forget everything else. The things you enjoy at 21 can be enjoyed at any age really.

There's also no guarantee you will "make it" at 23 if you start now.

But overall I think you're an idiot.

You and Axel can start a band together. Maybe send a PM to Ian and you'll have a real rockin band. Look out Justin Bieber!!

Not true, Sorry, maybe that is for Most bands, but now all. Kat Bjelland was 27 when she was in Babes in Toyland, Courtney Love as well- and look how many people hate her, lol.
Truth is Its never too late to start something great. Live out your dream if you are able to.

Yeah, if you're 21 and haven't chosen your path in life you should probably just kill yourself. You blew it.

Hasn't there already been a hard rock revolution?

Yup, and it sucked and didn't really bring us anything new.

nah theres this chick who just got famous with that call me maybe song and that bitch is like 27. Gerard Way from my chem didnt start his band till he was 24. theres plenty of cases of mid 20's success stories. although you are most certainly pushing it. however from your threads it seems like this is your only shot at doing anything in life so go balls deep until your career is about to explode and then pull out like your father didnt.

Dude, TS wtf is wrong with you. You think you die after 23? If the CD is good, it is good, if it is bad it is bad, regardless of the age of the musician.
