    Is your band filled with issues?
    Do you feel progress is being delayed?
    Are there unnecessary reoccurring incidents?

    I CAN HELP!!!!!!!!!

    After being in multiple bands filled with all sorts of problems and seeing others in the same situation, I WANT TO HELP! I have developed numerous techniques to lead bands to the best they can possibly be.

    I am twenty years old, full of energy and thoroughly enjoy giving others that extra boost to success! I believe so many bands love what they do and have incredible talent but get caught up too easily in unneeded situations, leading to full on split-ups.


    Yes, I will ask for payment in return but nothing like what a manager/mentor would. People work to make ends meet. The last thing I want to do is obstruct someone's ability to live comfortably.

    If you are interested in my services, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!!! I DO NOT BITE!!!!!

    At twenty years old, I feel this guy may not be quite as experienced or useful as he thinks he is.
  3. With him in your band all your other problems pale in comparison.
  4. If his answer for every problem isn’t “fire the drummer,” then he is of no use to us.

    At twenty years old? Maybe he has developed numerous new techniques for sacrificing 'live chickens'...(jk) but he does seem to think he's onto something. I like his con..fidence, but his methods to get positive results maybe questionable.

    He's only 20 and has been in numerous bands with so many problems.

    Hmm.... what was the common denominator in this scenario?:whistle:

    A therapist for bands!!! That's genius!!! I always wondered what I wanted to be when I grew up and now I know. Now I just need to get board certified and then I'm off to LA to open my new practice.

    Just think how many more good Van Halen records we could have had if this guy was around in 1984.

    Preventing “full on split-ups”, it’s like doing the Lord’s work. Every time a band breaks up, an angel dies.

    So he's applying to be a roadie who is telling you up front he's going to run his mouth about stuff not his business??

    Translation: Cheerleader.

    I can’t play anything worth a damn. But I like hanging out with bands. And I’m a swell guy to talk to when you need to just…y’know, talk.


    Consider letting him run your fan club.


    No way I’d allow him in the band’s rehearsal space or ever attend any band meeting.

    On a positive note it’s to see somebody putting all the things they learned at fellowship to work.

    He was.....we spent our last $275.00 on a 'band consultant' back then.
    He told us to dress better and play more popular songs.

    If this guy is a good communicator, then I can see this guy being able to help younger bands. When a group of people come together for a project, a lot of times everyone has their own assumptions on how things should work and how things are going to work - and they don't talk thing over with the other members. If this guy is able to get everyone to communicate and understand one another and decide on common goals, then he would be worth hiring.

    On the other hand I guess it's a hoot to make fun of him because he's young and a go-getter. If we can't make fun of him for being an unambitious couch surfer then I guess this is the next best thing.

    I was comfortable with paying him, but now that he's apologized for making money, I feel disgusted by my own Capitalism, and have decided to instead give him a ride to the soup kitchen.
