    During a recorded rehearsal session, one of the vocal mics picked up some grunting noises. Upon a full band investigation, it turns out that it was me grunting while playing.

    I played with a drummer who grunted the whoever time he played. He looked like he was chewing gum but he wasn't. So imagine humming a really low note while chewing gum.....for about 4 hours. Weirdest thing ever.

    I was in a band with a lead guitarist who did it while he had to concentrate playing. I always stayed out of his immediate area.

    I worked the road hard for almost ten years with a great group of guys. My guitar player (God rest his soul) for whatever reason produced an abundance of spittle when he became lubricated. When we did Beatles covers he would make his way to my microphone to give that Beatle-esque look. I dreaded it. I knew a face bath was coming.

    And here I was expecting another Celebrity Crush thread...

    EDIT: no, I never found myself drooling while playing. I have noticed a tendency to hold my breath, which I try to avoid.

    When in deep concentration I sometimes let my mouth hang open, but I do not drool

    My wife says I often stop breathing when I play and it worries her.

    I never noticed.

    I think gui****s should be required to hold their breath when soloing and stop when they run out of air :D

    As much as I despise duplicitous wanking for the sake of it, if someone is unburdening their soul, let 'em testify until it's all run out. :cool:
