Re: How do you find a band?
You have to look. For real. Look on Craigslist.com, myspace classifieds, Backpage.com. Look at your local music store on their bulletin board. Ask other musicians, because they know other musicians who know others. Go hang out in open jam nights if they will let you in. Try everything. The important thing i can't stress enough, is don't fall into the trap of thinking your band that you join is the one you're going to be with a year from now, or two or five or ten years. Constantly be looking for a better situation until you find the one you feel comfortable with. I always go back to the story that Robert Plant was in six bands at one time! What do you think he did to the other five when Led Zeppelin got signed?
I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drums all day!
