Re: best cites to live in for finding band members
Dude, you live in Virginia? Let us not forget Lamb of God, one of the biggest metal bands in the world, are from Richmond. There MUST be a burgeoning pool of heavy metal talent there, and at least some of them must be Christian.
Unless you're a VERY serious and very talented professional musician, I can't see packing up and moving your life around to find other musicians who may or may not be as committed/talented as you are. Just my 2 cents.
