You’re young, you’re talented and you’re sitting around in your garage one day and you say, “Hey we should start a band!”
I’m not a music industry expert, but I imagine there are a lot of details that go into launching a successful band.
A set list, an agent, concert venues, record deals, recording studios.
Signing with Disney to film a tween television comedy.
But the one thing that you should really, really think hard about and carefully select is:
Because last night as I watched the New Kids on the Block take the stage during Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve just minutes before midnight, all I could think was that you can’t call yourselves the *New Kids* on the Block anymore when you’re, like, 40.
I was just kind of embarrassed for these almost middle-aged men dancing like it was 1989 in black wool overcoats.
What was with the preppy mobster look anyway?
When you start a band you probably want to be around for awhile. So pick a name that has longevity. One that won’t sound lame when you go on your reunion tour sponsored by AARP 30 years later.
Also, I wonder how much Advil they took this morning so they could get out of bed after all that pop & locking last night?
I’m just sayin’…
