What is a band? Is it just an orchestra that you just play with and leave? Do you just work for your instrument’s part and write songs? If you are thinking of being in a band or forming a band, all the band members have to become a family and work together.
There are lots of famous and successful bands who were formed years ago. If you go to a world famous band’s concert, you can feel the energy and the chemistry while they are playing. Every band member knows their own part and there are no mistakes while they are playing. When you watch these bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, U2, Rush, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, AC/DC etc. you will see that they just have fun on the stage while they are doing their job seriously. Before every concert or a record release, they practice very hard even if they repeat their own songs for a lot of years. They love their job and they are doing it with a passion. It takes hard work and discipline to become a successful and world famous band.
As far as a member’s feelings about the band they are in are concerned, your band members should be trustworthy and they shouldn’t let you down in any circumstances. They have to love what they are doing and get enjoyment from it. Also, all the band members should be consistent and they all have to reach a consensus before they carry on with a project. All the band members should support each other. However, the band should continue to work hard and have big motivation. As you might have felt from these “rules”, I am a band member and I want everything to be PERFECT.
The bottom “note” is; a band means “a family”, “a team” who works together all the time. You start with little recordings and then you become famous if you have a chance. However, working as a team and a family are the main points which make a band successful.
