A Soundman Dies...

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by KeithAlanK, Oct 3, 2010.

  1. ...and somehow ends up in hell.

    Satan is happy to see him, because Hell's band has been doing sound from the stage.
    The devil shows the soundman his PA system, which is incredible, and the guy starts feeling pretty good about ending up down there.
    Then the band starts to arrive, and it's John Bonham on drums, Cliff Burton on bass, and Jimi Hendrix and SRV on guitar.
    The soundman asks Satan "How can this be hell? The PA is great and the band is unbelievable!"

    Satan replies "Oh, our singer is a woman".
  2. :rolleyes:
  3. Funny....... My bar band has a female lead singer who is absolutely great however also has to take the most crap because every eye and ear in the room is always focused on her. We record every performance from the back of the club on a small digital recorder. On playback later we always can hear a couple catty comments directed at her between the songs ..... usually from other women.
    You can't please everybody.

    hurm...... maybe you can explain why that's funny then? it's not even interesting enough to be offensive. it's just..... dumb.

    Well I was going to say "a**" instead but I remembered that the rules of this forum state that no profanity is allowed, if I remember correctly. I just thought it sounded better with the "P" word. : )

    But regardless...case in point....

    It made me chuckle a little. I don't find this to be stupid or offensive. He could of said that the singer was ********, a midget, Stephen Hawking, or something racist. Call me sexist, but I don't really care for female vocalists, especially in rock/metal bands. Of course, there are a few exceptions. I am not saying that women shouldn't sing, but that I'm not a fan of the majority of female fronted bands.

    Maybe if he'd said "Jewel is the lead singer..."

    Unfortunately she's still alive.
  12. I didn't find it offensive and I don't really care for chick singers.

    I also didn't find it funny.But hey,different strokes.....

    No serious that was just plain stupid

    There are so many bad singers out there and I guess everybody could come up with a few horrorvisions.

    But just ending it with "a woman"...
    Come on Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Billie Holyday, Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill...please give Women a rest if you're ever planning on scoring...
    or maybe you would fancy a gayish hell...No chicks just D..ks

    Although she is still alive (just barely) the better reply is " the singer is Yoko OH NO!"

    (corrected from my poor spelling "Uko")

    You mean Yoko?

    Come to think of it - I think that was the original punch line years ago.

    it's funny because sound guys aren't smart enough to be able to handle the complexities of the female vocalist!

    So it's more of a dig at the sound guy, IMHO
  18. No pictures.....

    No female singer.....

    It would have been funnier if Satan said the the soundman, "all they know how to play is the theme from Who's the Boss"
