Well, actually I’m going to list them for y’all to save some heartache, some money, and a crap ton of time. Of the 4 that I’m not currently dating, three are married and one has a child.I talk to two of them regularly, and consider one of the two among my very best friends. It’s a time commitment I’m sure you’ve gone to see your friends’ bands play and they’re a pretty good break every month or so.
The third I speak to on occasion on Facebook and the last has disappeared and can only be tracked via imdb. Everybody mingles, you learn the words sort of and you have a great time.
Now take that experience and multiply it by ONE MILLLION.
I can tell you right now that the green room at CBGBs was a cesspool, and they don’t get much better anywhere else. When DL broke JBJ’s heart he wrote “You give love a bad name” and back to the old gf. Having him leave and come back, or having one of his most awesome songs be about ? They’re going to write songs about you Both good and bad. One was written post break up and is called something like “love heartbroken” and has lyrics that sound something like “she was awesome but I freaking hate her guts right now.” Thanks, I’ll send that one to my Mom. There is possibility for VERY embarrassing things As embarrassing as it is to have a mediocre boy band song written about you, it can get worse.
More often than not you’ll either find yourself sitting on a couch drinking free beers surrounded by smoking 19 year olds, or at the bar. And oh, turns out her friend is the lead singers GIRLFRIEND. One (which thank god I can’t find on line) was even on the radio in Vegas! I can’t remember the exact chorus but it goes something like “Missing you is like going days without water, not getting to hold you feels like torture, if this is what it’s like to be without your touch then I’ll seeee you in my dreaaaaaaaams.” I’m getting pangs of embarrassment as I type this, I used to play this song for people. You have to make small talk with other girlfriends of band members and there’s hardly anything to say.
A musician will do the same thing over and over each night and you have to BE there!
