    Lol, yep! Frusciante and Harrison would have been out had they arrived during one of their beard phases.
    Guess Doug Martsch, Johnny Greenwood and J Mascis would have been turned away for the same thing.

    Well at least they have a band. I'm guessing >50% of the guys dumping on them don't even have that. And 25% have never had that.

    They might have what THEY call a band, but until they prove that outside of an ad, you can’t be sure of anything.

    I'm not sure that subject would occur to the person who wrote that ad.

    Here's an east bay guitar player who's apparently unqualified to write and record. Poor Tim

    Showing up for the audition sounds like a great way to get murdered. Hard pass

    Are those the original members of Ghost that were fired by the singer?

    Once in a while I get asked to join a band (yeah, I'm shocked also). I always decline, stating that I don't want to deal with band members. I should reply to this band just for the giggles.

    If it is up here in the Bay Area I would suspect it is some new money tech nerds overthinking what they are doing.

    I'm sure they will talk about how they are all makers and creatives. Taken lessons within the last three years.

    their post is a bit much, but after having started several projects over the last few years, I've learned that being very, very specific about what you are looking for helps weed out some of the crazies who respond on CL. Not all of them, mind you - I'm sure this guy still lots of responses that included lines like this: "this sounds like the perfect project - would you be interested in adding improvisational blues jams to your sets?" It's amazing, really and it's the kind of thing that drives you to postings like his.

    And as unbelievable as this may seem, not every musician likes improvisational styles of music . . . he didn't use the most polite language, but at least he's being crystal clear about what he wants.

    Play music? Why would you even want to talk to anyone who can’t spell Jimi Hendrix? Heck I almost had to divorce my wife over that one once. Thank goodness she learned!

    That alone disqualified 96% of TGP.

    They're the ones making fun of the ad.

    I overlooked this part of the ad.
    We're trying to find new and exciting ways to write pop songs.”
    Now I’m even more confused.:confused:
    But, more power to them. I occasionally put on a pop station to see what’s going on. Haven’t been impressed much.

    I'm sorry, they tell you all the things they don't want, but what their aspirations ARE is completely opaque from that verbiage. Whatever they do, I suspect the lyrics are pretentious. The ad certainly is.
