I was 13 when I first got the itch to start a band.  It was the early 90's and I was  a teenager in Seattle-- the Grunge capitol of the universe.  I was mesmerized by MTV and bands like Soundgarden and Nirvana were the coolest people in my world.

I couldn't play an instrument yet, but I was ready to start a band.

It was a few years later before I actually assembled my first band, but I had been planning it all along.  Our name, logo, album tiles, style, attitude-- I had been crafting and changing that on notebooks and binder covers all through junior high.

Nevertheless, putting a band together doesn't happen out of thin air.  It takes some thought and planning.  Here's a neat article that gives some good pointers that can get you going in the right direction.
