    It's a tradition right?
    Most teenagers start a band, they play a few crappy songs, and never go anywhere. Do/did you have a band as a teenager???
    What was the bands name?
    Did you play shows?
    Ever record?
    What are/were your feelings on it?
    Any memories you would like to share?


    I'll answer later. :)

    I was for most of my teenage and university years (I play bass). Now I just record at home, by myself or with my wife and some freinds. I'd like to start gigging once in a while again.

    I'm a teenager and I can't care less about playing music in a band. I don't even care to learn to play an instrument. :)

    I never did. Probably would have been impossible for me.

    Don't play any instruments and don't like to sing publicly, so no.

    I went the other route and became the shabby bohemian artist student type :p

    I played guitar and sang in a band for about 10 years, from 1994 to 2004.

    We released two EPs and 4 full lengths albums and we even played a few gigs outside of Ottawa. But I don't think we had what it takes to make it. And our music did not appeal to a lot of people. But it was fun.

    Nope, and won't be since I don't have those kind of skills.

    From 1989 to 1991 I played guitar in a punk rock and death metal band called Bloodmobile. Mostly we played house parties though we did a couple club shows as well. We wern't very good.

    I also played spacy guitar/sound effects on a sound collage cd a friend of mine released.

    I'm radioactive- I've never been in a band because I sing alone.
    Mwaha! :evil:

    I can't play an instrument. So if I wanted to start a band I would have to play punk

    I suppose ;).

    A couple, as well as into my early twenties.

    Originally Deaf Children Playing and later became Empire Down. A later, different band was Nervous Wrecked.

    Tons.

    I've recorded three albums and a bunch of demos/EPs.

    Good.

    Not particularly. I understand The Constantines are big now. I played a show or two with them before they signed onto Sub Pop.
