Last night at practice, a couple of my bandmates brought up an upcoming BotB they want to play. I've never been a fan of the whole pay to play thing in any format. There's a $50 entry fee to play three songs, one of which must be an original. We're a country/classic rock cover band and have made no effort toward original music. Almost as a lark, we cobbled together a collaborative effort and came up with what seems to be a fairly promising tune. I thought I had pretty much left the original music thing behind 25 years ago, but I found my enthusiasm building as it came together. Still, it seems to be fairly ridiculous to be playing a BotB at 50. I don't mind doing it once since they were pretty excited about it. But what has been lurking in my mind since last night is the urge to get back to writing and maybe get into the studio this winter if we can come up with enough quality material. So.....is it slightly nuts to be thinking about moving that direction after so long? Or should I encourage them to take a shot at it and to hell with the detractors and nay-sayers? What say the denizens of CJ?
