That's ridiculous. In fact, some of the most talented musicians I've ever met never play with other people. My uncle is one of the most phenomenal guitar players I know and he just piddles around in his spare time and has never been in a band. Just because somebody doesn't broadcast their talent doesn't make them any less of a musician than somebody who does.
