Description

Bandalism [ban-dəl-i-zəm] n .: the willful or malicious destruction of, or damage to, the fabric of a rock/pop/indie group brought about by one or more of its members

Axl Rose's monumental meltdowns . . . Kurt Cobain's tragic band-slaying suicide: The long history of platinum-selling überband implosions is more dramatic than a Russian novel. But even local cover bands can suffer the ill effects of the limelight.

Multi-rock-band veteran Julian Ridgway's Bandalism is a can't-miss guide to rock 'n' roll survival, offering sage advice on how to avoid the pitfalls that can doom your group. Here's how to:

Find nonpsycho band membersCraft the perfect band imageChoose a name that doesn't suck

And much more, including the handy Healthy Band Checklist, an ideal MySpace profile generator, and the Second Album Venn Diagram.

Review quote

"The life of a band is hardly easy, which is why Julian Ridgway should be awarded a medal for showing us that there is actually a way to survive ourselves. So, before you hire the dude from the Metallica movie, do yourself a favor: Read this book."--Leslie Simon and Trevor Kelley, author of Everybody Hurts: An Essential Guide to Emo Culture
