Re: How many true fans do you have?

A hundred bucks a year? Really? Most bands I like put out one album every two years, sometimes one album every five or six years. I'd say most of those bands albums cost maybe 15 bucks on average, maybe less if they're not so well known.

So where does the hundred come from? IMO that is way too much to ask out of anyone unless you wake up one morning and they're standing over you with a creepy smile on thier face, and unless they're a hot chick I don't want any part of that.

That criteria is a bit unrealistic.

Re: How many true fans do you have?

Without attending a concert/show I am not sure how I would spend $100 a year on one performer. I mean you could do it once, as you buy the box set of someone who has been around for awhile - but each year would be a challenge.

Most people wouldn't have too many as It's easier to just 'pirate' music or In my case I give a lot out for free. Not many people are that fanatical about most things anyway. IMO

Re: How many true fans do you have?

Maybe 10, but not by earlier stated insane criterions.
Im talking about people that listen to 95% of what i put out there. I think those are a god given in these spiritually empty times, and anyone driving 400 miles for you means you are either a sonical god, or your fan is completely bonkers. Take your pick.

Re: How many true fans do you have?

The only way to gain a fanbase is to do the work of getting out there live, being shitted on as an opening act for 2 years and then slowly rise up to prominence.

Re: How many true fans do you have?

Is it like one true fan to rule them all, one true fan to find them, or am I thinking of something else entirely?

Not really, you only need to pay three people $100 in exchange for the promise that they won't listen to your music that year.

Re: How many true fans do you have?

I can't count soundcloud followers as real fans and the same about facebook likes.

I think you have fans if they want your signature on their t-shirts after a gig
