Sorry, but this is one juvenile thread lol...One of the biggest stereotypes (and lets face it, most of us probably don't mind it lol) about bands playing concerts is when ladies undergarments go flying up onto the stage.
Soooooo....anybody have stories, total underwear counts, or any such articles kept that they would like to share with us? :hiding:

Not ladies, but my old drummer got a pair of men's tighty whiteys, complete with a streak. :rollno:

We were playing for a Halloween dance a few years ago at a bar and right in the middle of a song, a pink lace thong came flying in my direction like somebody shot a rubber band. I use a tripod mic stand with a boom and the thong somehow managed to land directly on the boom handle and just dangled there. Everybody in the place was laughing about it. I left them there for the remainder of the set and then wondered if I should touch them since I did not know if they were soiled or not. Anyway, they were clean and I took them back to the woman who flung them at me. She was sitting with her husband and they were laughing very hard about it. She said she bought them new that day and did not wear them but thought it would be funny to shoot them at the band. Too bad she was married because she was pretty. Just my luck to have a good looking woman do that only to end up she was married and not interested in me at all. :crying:

I played with a guy who had his wife throw a pair on stage at his cd release party. She seemed a little embarrassed by it, as it was pretty clear they were together and it was obviously staged.

I'd wager there was a greater concentration of these incidents in the 70's-80's than these days lol. Can't say I've ever experienced this, but I wouldn't say I've played too many big shows.
These are some funny stories! Much more interesting than a brag fest :)

if at the end of a show there aren't ladies panties on the stage, i take my underwear off and throw it into the crowd.
Years ago I played a dumpy joint near the local hospital. They had all of these tshirts tacked to the ceiling. The tradition was that the graduating class of nurses would all gather there wearing their grad t's, and by the end of the night several would be available for tacking up... A whole lotta fun on grad night!

Staged, yes. Some skinny girls got together and bought some huuuuuge size bras and panties just for throwing-on-stage purposes.

Hm. I once found women's underwear in the "Bridget Jones" style end up on stage, but I have no idea who threw them or when. I am still eyeing some of the female colleagues present with a raised eyebrow.

Back in college at UW Oshvegas, the band i was in played out in the quad. I had just started dating the woman who is now my wife. She and her friends came to see us play and launched a bunch of underwear up on the stage at me. but, it wasn't theirs. they went to Goodwill and stocked up on some size 50 tighty whiteys, granny panties, and other unmentionables. still gives me nightmares to this day!
|s_mcsleazy ||03-13-2013 05:58 PM |
kinda. it was a odd thing however. it was a pair of womens undies that had been worn by a gay guy the band knew.
|Floyd Eye ||03-13-2013 06:02 PM |
No undergarments on stage, but I would guess that at just about every show we play, boobs come out. Usually it's one or five of the same girls, but trust me, that's not a bad thing. lol

My old drummer had a collection! There were bras and panties hanging from every conceivable location on his drum rack. There was an incident where he put a still warm pair of panties on his head that still grosses me out! Ewwwwww!
Then there was this cute chick that donated her bra. That was cool, but she was there with her mom, and she decided to throw hers on the pile as well....... That was..... Less cool.....
|Liam76 ||03-13-2013 07:59 PM |
What's funny is everytime somebody like the Rolling Stones goes on tour, the late-night TV guys always crack about the panties now being thrown don't make it to the stage because of their size.
