I disagree. PVD is a good alternative to BOS only if you really want to be around BOS. BUt if BOS is the written in stone, I'd suggest Austin Tx. You can live there cheap and the whole town is all about nothing but music (and UT). If you're bent on coming to the northeast, I'd go for the whole enchilada and that would be NYC. Otherwise I'd suggest LA - or the west coast Portland or Seattle. Better weather anyways.

The other thing worth mentioning IMB is you don't have to be anywhere to become big in music anymore. If you can write and record and put it on the internet you can have as much success as by toting Marshall stacks day in day out. Write your music, make some online connections, see where it leads you. If you get hot on MySpace, that would give you more credibility to approach polygram.

Any musician who wants to grow their talent and options looks for places with a variety of musical styles and where crossing over is not only allowed, but encouraged. Being 19 or 20 is only the beginning of a career, and it is one reason so many choose Boston to start out. Successful musicians develop and evolve their own style, they don't copy others IMHO.

I cant help but to think that Texas is all about Country music. Or Metal. I think I'm giving up with the world, besides London there is no place for me.

You can't beat the UK for great music.

To stay in the Uk or anywhere in the EU it's best to have dual citizenship or be sponsored by someone who you know there. Also if you're considering college, go to a college there and live in a dorm. Other than that, well your tourist visa is rather short. Got any facebook friends in London?

Austin is probably your best bet IMB. It's cheap, and all about music. London Hotels average $200 per night.
