I never played in a band, I never had other musicians to jam with or try out ideas - most of this comes to life in BIAB. Also it gives me loads of practice and experience becoming better with my instruments.
My song writing would be nowhere near where I am at the moment without BIAB.

BIAB is a reliable set of bandmates that shows up on time, and to some extend play pretty much what you expect - only thing missing out on BIAB is the social part of drinking beer and acting silly while bonding and exchanging great ideas and plans that might come to life :-)

The best part of BIAB for me is the forum. The second best is to try to play along with the zillion different styles.
