    Ok this was one of our show that took place some week ago. I didn't write a review because this gig sucked ! 15 people were there on the 16 who knew there was a concert ! :mad:

    So, in the middle of our performance, a drunk guy came and danced. So far, I'm not impressed. Ican say I'm familiar with drunk guys as a alcohol addict myself.




    I wasn't prepared to this !!

    By the way, that's me in the back with my Fender Pbass MIJ 57' RI made in 82'

    man im saying is as a long time stage performer(acting singing, the few gigs the whole bit) i dont know if i could have handled that one, i dont know if i would luagh cry or just stop playing and stare...... i would like to think i would have closed my eyes and kept playing... ya i dont think so.

    Perfect example of why drummers should never sing.

  16. You should be honoured that this happened to you!

    That is sooooo funny, it makes for one of those pee-in-your-pants (sorry!) kinda stories you tell your grandchildren!

    I think I would've stopped playing and introduced the poor sucker to the crowd.

    ohhh mannnnn... that's terrible!

    OK here's the thing, I drink occasionally. Sometimes I have a little, sometimes I have a lot. But my used beer always gets deposited into a loo!

    Thought I was going to suffer an even worse fate this past Saturday. Got a call to do a pickup gig from this blues guy who calls me from time to time. Grand opening for a motorcycle shop, promises to be an easy, painless bit of cash. Almost there when I feel a rumbling. No problem - get there, find the bathrooom, obtain the key to the bathroom, and... discover that there is no toilet paper. Going to have to come back later... Ahhh... well, the first set was a little touch-and-go (almost literally), but I was able to get my hands on a roll and take care of business. And, as they say... it all worked out in the end!

    :D ;)
