Re: New Band
age gaps really don't matter, it just matters that you get along. One issue to watch is sometimes if everyone else is over 21 they'll be into heavy drinking and such, and at 17 you can't do that legally, at least. But if they seem easy enough to get along with, its fine.
One of my band's right now has quite a varied group- m percussionist is in his early-mid 30's, the guitarist is near 60, one of the vocalists is mid-40's, and so on. Its all about who gets along, the age disappears after a while.
