So he should plant weapons and get his former band members
But chubbypony, just keep doing what you do. Play music. Inspire. You wrote the songs, that means they're yours man, and nobody can take that away. One way to take care of it if you're really concerned is to copyright your songs. Type copyright.gov into Google or some other search engine and you'll find what you need to get started. Basically it requires you making an audio file of your songs on a cd (even if you have one already recorded w/ your old band, that'll work), filling out some forms, and maybe type up the lyrics and chords/riffs/etc. that go with the song. It costs $$ to copyright, but not much...I think it was around $40 or so last time I checked, but I could be wrong. Maybe it was $40 per cd....I can't remember. It also takes a good chunk of time for the process to be finished...4-8 months, as I recall.
But other than that, just keep on keepin' on. Keep writing music, keep practicing. You'll hook up w/ another band. Check www.craigslist.com
in your area - there are always folks on there looking to jam.
Play music, expand the mind, inspire...
