Time to come clean. I'm a teenager (mid-late teens) but I believe I am much more mature then the majority of my peers. For over four years so far all I've dreamt of doing was playing rock n roll for a living. Not that new lame alternative music which has become so popular (ie, blink182, all american rejects). I want to make a living playing ROCK. (ie, songs like guns n roses, motley crue, aerosmith, etc). So far I've had really bad luck finding dedicated players, even though on my own I've produced an eleven song demo album of what I believe is respectful rock n roll. I just see such a decline; everyone likes metal, alternative punk, or rap. Am I in a dreamland? Can a hard rock band still hit it bigtime? Not much of a post now that I revise it haha. Any comments welcome, but maybe some record label suggestions in Chicago? Do I have to eventually move to California? Thanks, sorry for my begging for sympathy.
