Re: theatrical attire onstage
I once wore a black suit with a white shirt and black tie to a gig. I looked Reservoir Dogs sharp. I didn't sweat as much as I thought I would so I wore it to the next gig and the bass player and keyboard player did the same. We looked stupid. Morticians in a wedding band with the singer and guitar player looking like last minute fill-ins.
Sometimes the Billy Bob Thornton look can work for one person but it can also backfire when everybody tries it.
You're in a metal band. Be bold and bring back the spandex, boots and big hair. Maybe it will catch on again.
