(Edited) Misadventures, accidents, and stories of gore (what?) ...OH MY!! (indeed!)

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by um... yeah, Jul 9, 2003.


  1. I've been in some strange situations, from being on stage while a club was being raided by the police (two of them ended up onstage trying to chase the manager backstage), to being hit on the collar bone by an errant beer bottle thrown by a female who was trying to hit another female.

    Apart from experiences that cannot be posted here due to their graphic adult content,let's hear some of YOUR misadventures before, during, or after the gig... :D :D :D

    Tell me you spell this poorly on purpose.
    I've read through the other six posts you've made here as a member of TB, and if you really spell like this at age 16 then I want a refund on my school taxes.

    Maybe dick zander is a joke. He makes fun of other people's spelling with horrible spelling of his own? It's happened here on TB before, it has to be a joke...right?:confused:

    seen a couple of barfights, got hit in the head with a plastic ashtray, got a quart of beer busted on my guitar while it was in it's open case (back in my guitar playing days), jumped up, hit a metal beam and cut my head open, no all on the same nite :) .

    we sometimes play institutionl shows (timeout NY magazine did an article on us that i'll post at the bottom) and we've had at least a couple of interesting incidents. one time a woman collapsed on my guitarist's leg and had a seizure. the freakiest thing about it was that noone panicked in the least - just part of their normal routine there. something i guess this woman does from time to time.

    another was much more frightening. a saw that they locked this really big guy into the next room and that he was very angry about something and they were restraining him. i saw this through the window in the door. i asked what the guy was so upset about, and one of the staff said, "ohh, nothing." but he was smiling. i persisted, and said "really, what's he so pissed at?" he smiled again (though he wasn't joking) and said, "well, actually... you." :eek: I was freaked, but they reassured me that I had done nothing. They said sometimes they just get something in their head, I may have looked at him in some way or something that he didn't like. they held us at the center until they carted everyone off of the facility - it was a day care facility.
