Wow! I've been using this site a lot recently and finally getting to the point of talking to some guys about some kind of project. Would I reply to this ad? Nope. Why not? Because he knows a zillion artists, and I only know about 1,500. :D

I very much like his no nonsense "Music isnt for a good time" approach though, together with meeting the right people and he'll be a success.

I think theres better ways to entice people to respond to an ad and end up with what you're looking for.

In summary, best of luck to the guy and it'd be interesting to be a fly on his PM box!

"but the style I'm looking for is indie rock or blues rock. This is a very broad spectrum.... and it's not going to work if everyone is pulling in different directions/genres"

I have a feeling that this band would not be fun to be in. No fun, no social side creating a buzz or excitement about what you are doing, nope turn up and play your (well his) indie rock and be serious it's all about being "successful" whatever that means to a 42 year old guitarist who's " spent half my life getting my music to where it's at"

He sounds a bit intense. Music making should be FUN (even if you are serious/trying to make a living out of it), otherwise what's the point?

I've definitely been in a band with his southern cousin.

Similar preciousness about his 'work' and attitude to life. Played guitar like he had Walls pork sausages for fingers.

Tricky, I can't be taking myself as seriously as this and have been in a band with someone who does. It was unpleasant and he ended up getting through 5 bass players - I was no. 2 and by far the longest enduring - and various other musicians over a four year period before jacking it all in. He was pretty talented and the band sounded pretty good, but fun? No. Attractive for an audience? No, far too earnest.

He wants some serious work rather than just a musical jolly, which is fair enough, I feel the same, but if it isn't enjoyable it's lost its way, hasn't it?

On the other hand, he's maybe just not very good at expressing himself in text and is so afraid of timewasters he's overdoing the seriousness.

The ad in the OP seems a bit bipolar and he wrote it on one of his off days. If I arranged a meeting it would be in a very public place. And I'd know where all the exits were in advance.

My last originals band (a while back now) did really really well given the lack of gigs we really played... and people loved us, why? cos we didn't take it too seriously and had fun. Which the audience could join in. We also were fairly intentional but weren't hanging our pride on being successful - and it showed.
