Well you KNOW that's gonna be my role if I decide to accept the offer. :jam:

@miek better to try than not try and regret it ?

one great thing about electronic music & instruments is we can age and still create stuff.

either as "producers" or studio musicians to djing at gatherings, etc

i'm definitely gna have to stop my rap project at some point but that's just one style of music out of many. i'm been doing classical, jazz, rock/metal, electronica, drum & bass, ambient, etc since i was 8 years old

so there are always ways to evolve and different styles to try. my dj for my rap gigs moved to another city and is joining a screechy 80s new wave/post punk band.

when i get much older hopefully i will still be interested in this crap and will be more into modern classical, noise, ambient, etc and merge some of it with my fine arts background. it could get fairly pretentious but whatevs lol

So you think you're too old? I think Giorgio Moroder would disagree.

But he's probably too busy collaborating with the likes of Daft Punk to care... :grin:

Point taken.

Also, G-War, I have been in rock bands before. But rock seems like it's not really popular anymore.

Further, I'm glad you guys seem to have so much faith in me. It's been YEARS since I was onstage.

Been years for me, too. Last onstage in 1994, I think. :eek: holy crap

Also, I wonder if "kids today" care about the rock we grew up with at all? Eh. Tell your buds to skip the rock and go straight for New Wave synthy ridiculousness. :lol:

I wish! But it is not my project, so I can't call the shots. However,the particular position I was offered was "Any instrument you want."

So, of course that means if I decide to do it, I'm going synth. I have done guitar, bass, and vocals on stage in some combination or another all my life, but NEVER synth.

Yes and no, as I see it.

"Indie rock" (was: "alternative" back when I was a "kids today") still is a thing and occasionally even gets really popular (see: Imagine Dragons, Arcade Fire, etc.). Although there's way more Keyboard and sequencing these days in indie rock (not a bad thing IMHO :cool: ).

Smaller geetar subgenres of the 1980s (yer punk rock and metal) still are alive and kicking, including all those new genres that got popular with the 00s kids (emo, metalcore).

I think the current radio-friendly / Nashville side of country is essentially 1980s arena rock with a re-skin. EG: Take a song by, say, Bryan Adams, and add small doses of "country instruments" (pedal steel, banjo, fiddle). You're pretty close to a Thomas Rhett and Brett Young. Florida Georgia Line *wishes* they could harmonize like Def Leppard! :lol:

You're never too old...!

Only way I'd "gig" is by myself. I'd do shows.. one offs, supporting engagements. That's kind of thing. That's how it works down here anyway, but I'd be doing my own music.

If you guys are doing covers or originals, but looking at steady gigs, pain in the ass is your #1 consideration. How much time does it take away from you, your music, your life etc? Feel free to give it a trial run.. say 6 months then I'm out.

People can get too caught up in that though.. "dude, we NEED to get you out". :lol: I stay away from those crowds.. however I don't know your particular stich lol
