Distortion, great thing...

  1. well, it's not my gig that it happened in, but i saw it, it was great.

    any, i was bored so i was watching Maximum Exposure (aka Max X) and it was a "dudes with tudes" one and there was this mediocre rock group playing this gig in some club, and the dumb jerk in the front started cursing and yelling get off the stage right when they all got plugged in...
    end result, the leed singer (also guitar player) took his guitar and smashed it into that guys skull *the guy that was cursing at them* he had his distorter on so the BANG went through all the speakers louder than hell... then a fight started , show ended there... lawyers came ect...

    that singer was really pissed at that guy in the front row eh? :smug:
  2. if that is true.... holy hell!

    I saw something similar on Real TV, except it was the bass player. Some guy tried to rush the stage and he just nailed him across the face with his bass baseball-style. It looked like a Warwick Thumb to me, and as an owner of Warwicks I can say they're definitely weapons, all that heavy exotic wood...

    I can only start to imagine the extent to someones facial injuries hitting them with a bass/guitar. Esepcially one as heavy as a Warwick! I'd imagine this would be the persons face :meh: and :crying: ! lol

  7. Well I don't think the "smart guy" who got his chops smashed in won't be bagging bands for a while. And what is that s... anyway, these stains who are natures cruelest mistakes come to gigs and start heckling before even one note is played!!!! and the idiot probably isn't a muso anyway. Maybe if the band realy sucked it might be excused to some one heckling, but before a notes been played, what a goose!

    I believe that Warwick translated from German means War Stick.

    and would it break (the bass, not the skull :D )?
  10. neither i would use the amp!! i have a marshall and its solid but id worry about braking my bass!

    Didn't Pete Townsend used to like to do this? I remember hearing of how he hit many people with his guitar. John for one, and some people rushing the stage.

    Personally I would use the butt of the bass in a thrusting motion instead of a swinging motion.

    (i wish i had gotten that bc rich nj beast instead of the warwick :) )

    You could've made a nice compromise and gotten a Warwick Vampyre :).
