1. Have you ever played in a band that performed original material? If no, then stop. We’re probably not musically compatible.
2. Name ten bands that have influenced the music you’ve played/written in original bands, in no particular order. For example, mine might be:
Lou Reed or maybe more like Iggy Pop
If you don’t match at least three of these, stop. We’re probably not compatible.
3. Name at least 3 bands not listed above whose style you’ve considered, but never had the opportunity. For example, mine probably would be:
X, Yes, Blondie, the Damned
If you don’t like at least one of these, stop.
3. On a scale of 1 to 10, how important are the lyrics of an original song you’re performing? If less than 6, stop. We’re definitely not compatible musically.
