What is important to you when you are putting a new band together and/or looking for a new member? Obviously, the first thing would be the ability to play the instrument you are looking for at an accetable level of ability. But, what else? Looks? Good equipment? Someone who shows on time? Someone who doesn't learn the material? Someone who treats others well?
I'm currently not a band leader, nor have I been since the old high school garage days. I'm curious to get some perspectives from the other side.
