Assisted Living: Too Many Questions

by / Jul. 6, 2016 3am EST

Editor’s note: As frontman of Every Time I DieKeith Buckley has traveled the world gaining insights about the universe. In this monthly column he’ll use those insights to guide our readers with heartfelt and brutally honest advice. Have a question for Keith? Send it to

DEAR KEITH: I’m in a band. We’ve played a few shows, but all of the members have been in other bands—some who have toured. What are some realistic expectations for a band in 2016? What’s an actual, achievable goal we can shoot for? Is it realistic to try and get signed by a record label or should we be putting our focus elsewhere? Are these questions even answerable? How many questions am I allowed to ask here?SINCERELY, BAND GUY WITH TOO MANY QUESTIONS


You are allowed one question.

Best of luck,
