Howdy, folks! It’s Ern here, and I’ve been thinking about bands and their ‘life spans,’ so to speak. Consider DAZZLE VISION; I thought they would be together for much longer, but 12 years was their cut-off. There are also bands with more years under their belt like L’Arc~en~Ciel with 23 years together, and some with just a few months like IX -NINE-.
Some bands break up after 1-2 years, some live for decades, and some never get the chance to begin activities before breaking up! What qualities must a band have to be able to have a long, successful life?
This question ties in a little to the previous question, where we asked about your favorite new band. As always, please be respectful of others and their opinions. Feel free to comment on this page or via Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.
