I am a drummer looking to round up a group of 'free agents' to hopefully form a cover band that can handle some of the more challenging songs in the classic rock archives.

I own a great rehearsal studio on the ME/NH border near Dover and I have been drumming in various bands for almost 40 years.
As far as what to cover, I have a few ideas but I am keeping the options wide open to all the personalities in the band.
Most of my favorites come out of the 60's and 70's classic rock genre but my goal is to be in a band that is wiling to tackle anything. I think its always good to surprise your audience.
You: are very competant at your instrument and have no problems contributing to vocal harmonies.
You should love classic rock but should not be 'too cool' to cover whatever little tidbits of 50's, country, disco, grunge etc. that make their way into the show.
You should be willing to work towards pollishing the sets. Meaning knowing your part and being able to go from one song to the next within no more than a few seconds or so.
Hopefully we can make this a great band to be in, so once a week rehearsals don't seem like a hassle and 3 or 4 gigs a month is the least we should expect. My godson(nephew) is a booking agent for a lot of the venues on the Seacoast area so once were happy with our product, good paying gigs wont be tough to get.
I am in my 50's, but if you are the musician described above, age is not a deal-breaker.
As long as you are, and act like a proffesional adult.
Lets see what this area can offer for a kick-ass cover band.
Please respond and join the discussion.
The sooner the better.
