I'd say it's way easier to start a band when you already have music written. 2-3 demo songs should be plenty.

It puts less pressure on the guys joining, and it gives you a really convenient starting point for when you want to write new music with the group. They don't even have to be great songs, they just have to be proof-of-concept like a pilot episode on TV.

Of course, ideally you'd find someone that shares your vision and that you write well with before you start writing, but that's what's hard. Starting a band with friends is great for this, but being in a band with friends can also get messy now and then.
