What do all you pit fellows think of a band consisting of all 14 year old kids? Do you think they have the musical talent to be productive? I for one can give or take most of the really young acts that i hear because i just cant hear the talent at all. Me and my buddy were having a debate on this so i just wanted another opinion.

Depends on the kids.

Any age group can be talented, just not taken seriously.

Unless anyone hears the talent they actually have, no one can answer this. You can't base talent off age, dumbass.

I organized a benefit music festival and this one band played that consisted mainly of 15 year olds . . . except for the kid who played the 5-string bass.

He could sing all of the upper harmonies because his balls hadn't dropped yet. Of course, I am sure that puberty hit him like a pile of bricks.

Well, you have to start somewhere.

I'm sure you guys thought you were the shit at 14, too.

We're all in the gutter, but I'm looking at the rats.

Well look how young the Beatles started out. Any band could start young and become great. The earlier, the better, in some cases.

Hey Andrew, as much as i love Morrison there was no need to be a prick, and you can base talent off of age because if you have a 5 year old with all the "talent" in the world but he/she hasnt had the time to build off of it, it wont work out. 14 is a little different but no one is ever at full potential so that young would just be a head start in my opinion

anyway,
the best young band ive ever heard would have to be these kids that i met at a local show around Pittsburgh
you can be the judge of them, recording quality is iffy, but not too bad i guess

The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

That was one of the rare times where I'm not acting like a prick.

I'm also not talking about a bloody 5 year old. The general idea of a 12 year old will never be taken seriously because of his/her age, even if he/she is as talented as the professionals.

Yes, you're always learning, though.

This band did a great job at covering freebird and theyre all fifteen, except for the guy on lead guitar who was 17 i think... They played it at out variety show. The kid who's singing and played rhythm was having amp troubles, so its really loud in the beginning, but a kid ran out and turned it down, so just ignore that first 30 seconds... The kid playing lead nailed the solos, the crowd went crazy so it's kinda hard to hear it...

Everyone needs to start somewhere. If you're 14, don't expect to be the next Zeppelin in a week. Just being in a band at a young age offers valuable experiences that will help when you start to join full-time bands.

I believe Tom Kalnoky of Catch-22 and Streetlight was 15 when he started Gimp, and they were actually pretty good for a Jersey punk band made of kids who do not shave and sing songs about Mrs. Butterworth and her Indestructible Bomb Shelter.

Its all a question of if the vocal chords are built up yet or not.
