Sure. Garage bands are mocked. Almost everyone has been in a band, humped equipment for a friend’s band, or paid a cover to hear a sh*tty band from your high school.
But you really don’t have the right to criticize. Because if you don’t throw your hat in the ring and take some risks, you will never fail .. but you will never hit the ball out of the park, neither.
Which is why I like For Those Who Tried To Rock – a blog chronicling:
“… band to have been formed by teens with that perfect mixture of big dreams and questionable talent in suburban garages, high school music rooms, and college dorms across America….”
It’s entry after entry of young hopes and ambition, slogging it out in basements, garages and clubs.
