Beating the elderly is a big favourite of mine. Also, pushing kids over and kicking pregnant women in the womb is fun.



Right now we're called 'Various Artists' just to fuck over people with iPods

Probably not a good idea, because when you two breakup she will quit the band.


Yup...or it will become completely awkward until finally you just stop calling them for band practice-oops...

I dated my singer for a few months, when it didn't work out we talked it out with the entire band, and right now, 2 years later, she's still our lead vocalist.

I personally wouldn't but my drummer and singer have been together for three years and their relationship hasn't gotten in the way of the band. They both understand that their relationship and the band are two separate things and they don't let the two influence each other.

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

BAND MEETING!!!

I dunno... Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore were already dating when they formed Sonic Youth, and they're married with a kid now, so I guess it works for some people. I think if you're professional enough you could hold it together.

I wouldn't. It'd be way to stressful on me, her, and the band. Plus I don't want my horny drummer to masturbate to us kissing.

I had a roommate who was once in a band with a married couple. They just have to have understanding on what needs to be done and to leave personal stuff out of there. I also played with someone before who used to be in a band with a gay couple. They would sometimes come to practice mad at each other and he would tell them to just get to the music. They were on drugs also, so that didn't play a good role. Sadly, one of them died of AIDS.

I was in one band before where some people would come to practice mad or upset, I told them then to leave the personal stuff at the door and go back to it in 3 hours when we stop. This was also a reason why I banned cell phones from practice. If someone got a mean text message they would get upset at that moment and want to jump on the phone.

Side Note: I once heard a story of a guy who was dating a girl in his band. He was so dedicated to the band, he sided with his band members to kick her out of the band!
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

I personally wouldn't do it - but that's mainly because I'm not much of a dater and for me music is more important than relationships to me.

It was alright for Jack and Meg White, and also The Subways guitaist and bassist have been dating since they were...like fifteen I tihnk. And now they are getting married (or have recently been married). At least, I'm pretty sure...

EDIT: And the Arcade Fire is greatly successful too!

Depends on the band. If it's full of immature brats, then no. If everyone, me included, is mature, then maybe. Also, we would still need to be professional in regards to the music.

Yup guess it depends on the people...i dated my bass player and almost as soon as we started dating he slacked off and started being late for practice-or making up lame excuses about why he couldn't come. Which shows that he just joined the band for one reason...and it wasn't the music.

All drummers are horny, what are you talking about?

I've never been in the position to date a band mate, and I don't really know how I'd handle it. I'd probably go for it, though. I used to love playing music with my old girlfriend. We were never in a band together but I thought it was cool while it lasted.
#28
I never would I dont think. Its hard to say cause I dont think I would have a woman in my band. It depends though if I take the jazz route or rock, cause more women are in the jazz scene so who knows.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

If I had a very nice female in our band then yes. But with a group of metalhead lads- i'll pass.

Well, it depends.. me and my girlfriend recorded a few tracks together, just the two of us, with her on the synthesizer, and me on, well, everything else. It was an overdubbing nightmare. But the music was ok.

But if you're just two of the five members of a band, I'm not sure..

I am going to say no.

The consequences and awkwardness of breaking up can ruin a great band. I just can't see it working.

You could be like Fleetwood Mac where you all date each other, get sad and dump each other, then write an album about it that sells 25 million copies.

no problem there.. just be careful lover boy.. you lose her, you could lose a chick and a vocalist at the same time.. but you'll be careful, i know..

Never. It would make it unfair to the other members because, being a couple, you would more often than not decide on things together, instead of independentley.

haha, im actually trying to date her now, haha. it is probably a bad idea, but to be honest i really care about her, and she means the world to me.
actually my first band, the bass player and singer were married, of course 4 years later they got divorced and the band split up.
