Starting a Band (hopefully)

So I really want to start up a band, but I don't really know that many people who play instruments. I'm really into writing songs and I've played piano since I was four and I sing and play drums, but I don't know many people who are into music. Does anyone out there who currently has a band or has had one in the past have any advice on how I can find people who want to be in a band with me?

to those of you currently in or who have been in bands:

I have questions for you:
How did you meet your fellow members?
Where do you practice?
Do you argue a lot?
What kind of stuff do you play?
Do you do any gigs of any kind?
This may seem like an odd blog but basically there's a very very slim chance my old band might be starting up again (if not I'll still be looking for a new one) and I'd just like to hear about your experiences with your bands bc if I'm honest - my last band experience was just insane. It was a total fuckin' shitstorm and it makes me want to impale my face on a very long metal rod just thinking about it. So comment? xo

Killjoy profile thing

I haven't been a member of this site very long (about 5 days), so I thought I'd post this as a kind of hello or a description of me/ how I want to be/ me as a killjoy. Feel free to ignore, I don't mind

Jazz Band!

So Jazz band starts today! One of my favorite things to do! Brought in my guitar amp to use for it because the schools bass guitar amp has a fucked up speaker, and gives a really bad feedback and buzzing noise, witch works for when I need to be loud or just like to dick around, but it would sound terrible in jazz band, so im using mine. WOOOO!

To KillJoys <3

I haven't been on this site in months (almost a whole year!). I lost my account information, but then I finally found it. I feel like I've missed out on a lot, so some of you guys should update me on what's been going on. When I finally was able to get back on, a smile spread across my face when I saw that people still actively post on here over a year after MCR broke up. That makes me very happy! KillJoys, I love you all! :) <3 Each and every one of you are amazing and beautiful in your own ways! Have a great day!

Part One of...?

It sure has been a while, Killjoys, but I'm back and (maybe) better than ever!

My sister and I went to see MSI at the end of March, and it was amazing! Even though the only other show I'd been to was Pentimento/Dads/Reggie and the Full Effect, I must say MSI was the best show I've attended. The Bunny The Bear opened the show, and people were a lot less enthusiastic for them. I, however, tried (and succeeded!) in getting into it. They are a good band, but I was more enthusiastic for MSI.

By the way, does anyone know the name of the blonde guitarist for The Bunny The Bear? I met him after the show (pictured here) but I didn't get his name. I just think he's amazing because:

1. He can sing.
2. He plays guitar.
3. He screams.
4. He's really cute.

I just like taking random videos of my friends or whenever I'm outside because i never actually leave my home only on rare occasions...and i only have 2 friends. so out of the many little clips i take i just edit and make into a short video. I've privated one but so far i have 2 videos up. thank you to anyone who has complimented me. yeah i know my videos are strange but i enjoy them

My Dream Job

Hey guys, I just thought I'd give ya'll a little bit of information about myself. My dream job is to be in a band. Which I'm sure seems a little cliche, but I've got to say, I don't want to be in the kind of band that starts off with a fancy tour bus and a shiny new first album, I don't want it all handed to us on a silver platter. I want to travel across the states in an old van showering in hoses, dealing with slightly(or really) greasy hair, I want to get to a venue one hour early to crunch practice so then we can kind of be prepared for a concert, and I want to finish a concert feeling like we accomplished something. Maybe I'm just a nerd, maybe my hopes are too high. But that is what I'd like to do with my life. Play my heart out and go back to the van and do it all again the next day.

DeviantArt (and rant)

Hi, if anyone wants to follow me on Deviant Art, my username is MyChemicalBlackVeil, I don't know if anyone else has a deviant art, but I personally love reading fan fictions and favoriting fan art. In other news, I'm about to go on a rant, so, I don't mind if you don't want to keep reading, but, beware, it's pretty long

hey guys

Hey guys I finally got an account so I could talk to some fellow killjoys. MCR is my life and they pulled me through some rough times. I am really depressed that I will never get to see them live (aren't we all?) but at least they're still making music and all their music is still around.

Depression... Argh...

So, I did it again... I fell in love with another boy. But, unlike the last time I fell in love with someone I actually know, he fell for me first. And then it just didn't work out because of religious differences (which aren't so bad for where we were, but I kinda wanted my preacher of a father to perform our wedding ceremony and he won't condone a relationship between me and someone who isn't also a Christian). So now I'm single again with a broken heart and a hurt pride (he flat out told me that I was saying we couldn't be together because I "thought I was too good for him" [not my thoughts or words whatsoever...] and I was acting all high and mighty. Excuse me? If I thought that way, why would I bother fighting to save your life in the first place? Think logically, boy...) and I'm in a pissy mood because of it. Go fucking figure.
Sorry for the rant. I'm really depressed right now and just need to get this out, without crying again.
How is everyone else?

3am

I stayed up until almost 3 in the morning talking to my "close friend" who's a guy. He's a confusing and fascinating creature. He keeps dropping the words 'close friend' and 'friend' into conversation with me, yet the last two times we've met up there's been sort of signs that we're developing into something more. It's exciting and frustrating at the same time. Anyway, I fell asleep at 3am and woke up at 7am, managed to get back to sleep after that and then woke up at 9am. I'm supposed to be studying hard these days but I would much rather talk to him until I die from sleep-deprivation. Ugh. >.<

New Song in progress.

So im working out a new song, with people actually working with me. But right now the only thing we can agree on and work with is the chorus. And its a cheesy ass chorus. But whats the best you can expect from two teenage boys? Its mostly him, but now im switching to lead guitar, and teaching my little sister rhythm. And hes dead set on making a supper deep love song, because hes had an OH SO GREAT LOVE LIFE! Fucking highschool boy syndrome. Falls in love that every girl he talks to is "The one" and after two weeks of talking and he ask her out and she says no, she becomes satan spawn in five seconds after such a crushing heart break. Its hard working with people like that, and if it wasn't for him being a talented singer, id probably call him out on it. And if your reading this and thinking, "Hey, why does it seem like he described me?" than 1. Im sorry, I just cant stand it. 2. Your a step closer to getting better because you can see it.
