    We had our first gig since last August Friday. It was at a private club we have played many times before.

    I was on the stage setting up and a club patron looked at the sign with the bands listed for July and asked the doorman who was playing that night. The door man said Three Of Hearts. The patron asked, "Are they any good?" I replied, "No, we suck!" The patron looked at me and said, "I guess I put my foot in my mouth!"

    Even though I was in plain site on the stage and standing about 8 feet up, I knew he did not see me setting up and we all laughed.

    A good lesson to see who is around when somebody asks about the band.

    "Tonight's Band Sucks!" would be a great band name - looks good on a marquee!

    I have seen a variety of electric instruments made of strange objects: shovels, baseball bats, etc.
    I wonder if anyone has made them of old vacuum cleaners: then you could accurately say, "Their instruments all suck!" No problem with neck dive, either, as the bottom end is far too heavy.
    (sorry...I'll find my own way out...) :)

  5. Hi,

    I've had patrons walk right up to me as I'm setting up and ask, "Are you guys any good?" :roflmao:

    Thank you for your indulgence,
