Everyone, try and e-mail bands about RBN! Another Reboot......

THIS WILL BE UPDATED

Post 1 and 2: Bands
Post 3: Solo Artists

PLEASE READ:

If you are interested in emailing a band, artist, or record label, please do it yourself. If you do not know where to start, please go here.

If a band has been contacted and has not replied, please feel free to send an email, but please do not spam their inbox. Not only is it annoying, but it could cause a loss of interest in the RBN.

Be sure to at least mention RBN 2.0 and its features (keys, harmonies, etc...). This may spark interest in bands/artists who heavily utilize these features

If/when you email a band, please post so I can add to the list

Lime: Confirmed
Yellow: Interested
Red: Not Interested

    Now I just need to contact Universal, but it's a lot harder contacting a record label about the RBN, as you lose the personal aspect you have when dealing with band members

    That and record labels are tough to deal with, especially the large ones :(

    Although, I do have some experience dealing with other large companies for the RBN, so I'll give it a shot

    EDIT: I might get lucky, they have a lot of bands in Rock Band already, Rise Against, Sonic Youth, Sum 41, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, etc.

    That's very true. And they are probably making a good profit from DLC, so this may make them interested

    I'd say send them a message on either Facebook or Myspace. I didn't see anything on their main site either.

    Only the lead singer left. The funny thing is it took 2 guys to replace him. :) That's how awesome Christian is. The harsh vocalist is fine, but the clean singer just doesn't fit.

    Hey folks!
    I got to talk to Johnny Whitney on twitter, the singer for The Blood Brothers, Jaguar Love, and Neon Blonde. I told him all about RBN and its advantages for lending his music. He seemed very interested in this but said he has no control. Very sad about this but please mark the three bands listed as RED

    EDIT: Contacting The Number 12 Looks like you, A Day of Violence, and Fox Force Five(usa)

    I sent a message to Mark Bryan's page on Facebook; he's the guitarist for Hootie & the Blowfish. I got a reply saying "great idea!" and the email of someone closer to the band's management. I sent that email over the weekend (July 25).

    So nothing in terms of "news" yet, but at least the seed was planted.

    Thanks!

    If he has no control, I'd think that would just be gray, since it's still possible that whoever does have control would be interested. (Or we could have some new color mean "Does not have the rights to put their own songs in, so don't bother contacting them but don't lose all hope, and maybe contact their record label if you really want them.")

    This is correct.

    Just because the singer doesn't have rights doesn't mean another member of the band, or the label would be against putting the songs into the game.

    All about contacting the correct rights holders.

    I'm leaving Johnny Whitney's bands in gray for now, but if anything changes, I'll update when I can. For all intents and purposes, I will add Johnny Whitney in yellow
