Remake your life - Start a rock band....

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by TheSuzie, Feb 21, 2006.

  1. From an article in New York magazine:

    Start a Rock Band
    Hire a hot drummer. “If you don’t, everyone can feel it. Your music drags. When Matt Sweeney and I started Chavez in 1992, we couldn’t find a drummer who was good enough. Finally, we found James Lo, who’s a genius. We kissed his ass relentlessly; when we went on tour and there was only one bed in the hotel room, James got it.” Hire an egoless bass player. “A band is not a democracy. It’s more socialist, and if there are too many people on the socialist committee, nothing gets done. You need peasants to oppress, and we totally oppressed our bass player, Scott Marshall. He played exactly what we told him to play. But he didn’t care. He got to come on tour with us and meet girls.”
    —Clay Tarver, guitarist in the mid-nineties band Chavez, whose albums are being rereleased on Matador in June.
