    After being in a band for about a week, we played our first gig tonight. All I can say is, even though we messed a few times, we didn't totally suck. It was pretty fun actually. It was a big huge party at the homecoming queen's house. It was pretty high profile for a first gig, but we rocked it hard. The funniest thing was all the drunk people. There was some guys dancing on my amp and the dude fell off and almost knocked me over. Then I started playing some grooves and some guys started rapping. It was a great experience to have as a first gig. Except for the end of the night when we were loading up and some guy tried to pick a fight with the drummer. That wasn't as fun. But I lived through and it rocked..

    Yep, I remember my first beer. Sounds like high school. Congrats on your first gig. I'm glad you survived. Onward and upward!

    Thank you for your indulgence,

  5. You're off to a good start! Hey, everyone wants to fight the drummer. :smug:

    I hope the last 18 years were as good for you as the first 18 were!

    Legend has it, he got so lost on the way to his second gig that it drove him completely insane. If you listen closely, you can still hear his bass lines at night.

    Thump... Thump............... Thump.....

    Hi guys,

    Wow! I did not notice this was such a zombie post, with its first reply 18 years later. How did no one notice this fellow's first gig? It's a shame. I hope he didn't sell his gear and quit due to non-response.

    Thank you for your indulgence,
