How to form and run a rock band
Just found this resource via an e-mail list. It looks like a pretty cool heads-up for the muso who wants to get started in playing in a band, or whose wondering (as we all do) what went wrong in their last attempt to play in a band.
I'm not sure I endorse everything that's in it - I haven't read it all, either - but it looks like it's pretty comprehensive.I'd like to see more stuff about thing things that can cause problems later - song-writing credits and income splits, that sort of thing. Not that these issues necessarily cause problems, but when they do, it all gets very ugly and a little thought in that direction early in the piece can save a lot of heartache later ...
Maybe a sample band agreement would be cool. Or at least some more points for discussion/agreement among band members at the point of "getting serious".Posted by Hughie at January 26, 2008 9:19 AM
