    A suggestion that pops up in a committee meeting every so often and indeed has made disconcerting progress in our own although resistance may be met!

    If it was your Band would you;
    a) Agree to be one of the models?
    b) Buy a calendar?
    c) Think it the wrong image for your band?
    d) Depend upon the sex of the models?
    e) Depend on the attractiveness of the models?

    I think it's a great idea, but I don't know if the world's ready for me to bare even a few of my credentials just yet...! ;)

    I'd be happy to get my maracas out in the name of banding.
    Sadly however, I fear our usual audience may not be too keen to part with their cash to see them.

    I guess if there were separate calendars for each sex with above average looking models, then there might be a chance of selling a few to the usual pervs (i.e. me), but I can't see that it'll have much to do with banding.

    That said - there are bound to be a number of banding girlies I'd like to see with their brass bits out.

    If it was your Band would you;
    a) Agree to be one of the models? YES YES YES, tackle out, don't eat your lunch before viewing. :biggrin:
    b) Buy a calendar? YES
    c) Think it the wrong image for your band? NO
    d) Depend upon the sex of the models? NO
    e) Depend on the attractiveness of the models? NO, (maybe as well I was in it :oops:)

    So you guys are saying that you'd happily buy a calendar - and assumingly display it - of both lovely ladies and hairy bottomed fella's?

    I can see the novelty value of a calendar of this nature, but surely mixed calendars would limit your sales potential?
    Bands should make one of each and sell them together as a family gift pack! ;)

    I would say a big fat NO!!! There are some things/people that should NEVER EVER be seen naked....EVER!

    I think it's a bloomin' brilliant idea!

    It may just be the incentive I need to get off my a*se and go back to the gym......I'm all for it!

    This thread is just screaming out for a list of the bands(men in my case!) we'd like to see on the calendar, isn't it?!

    Having done one of these calendars for my boss' retirement last year I would do this, providing it was tastefully done.

    I know a bass player that has had his photo taken already (remember Butlins 'Howard')

    How about a tMP calendar? We could all send in pics of good looking models, claim that they were us........................'cos the majority of those of us on here haven't actually met each other, who's to know????

    Better still, have yourselves a fun day out. If there were enough people who would seriously consider doing this - I can get hold of a studio for a day or half-day, and I'd be happy to take the shots, then I'd be happy to put together the calendar and sell from here on tMP - with some % going to the models or bands who provide the models.

    Would take some organising, but if this were to take off (excuse the pun!!) now is the time to get it started.
