Ok, I'm a 53 yr. old bass player, still feel pretty healthy, feel like I play better than ever other than shear endurance (maybe) . I'm between bands and all I am getting offered is worn-out guys my age and older, playing the music we listened to when we were 20-something. Yesterday I went and tried out with, and was asked to come back to a Christian rap-rock band fronted by a 29 yr. old. Think Rage Against Machine, Chii Peppers, Limp Bizkit. The other guys in band are between lead's age and mine. I'm intrigued - I love the energy and vibe, the guys all seem cool/nice and have a fairly formed game plan. I feel like a poser since it hasn't been my genre of playing but I like most of their music for the energy and swagger. Plus I think the breadth of my music exposure and playing put me far ahead of the game compared to some who have limited themselves. It could be a great mash-up of rap & rock! What do you think - should I go for it or stay in my genres of most competence? Thanks!
