    At the gig yesterday the town water had a gross taste, so I asked the bartender to fill my squeeze bottle with diet Coke. I put it on one of the double 18 subs next to me.
    Halfway thru Tube Snake Boogie, diet Coke started shooting out of my waterbottle, hitting the ceiling.

    No, it does not come close to topping the flash pot that went off under me, and burnt my pantyhose off.

    No joke! That could've been disastrous.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    your lucky that's all it burned off, used those stupid things back in the 70's, we lost a regular gig because we burned the acoustic tile ceiling in the place, the owner was not amused

    Add bass frequencies generated whilst playing a ZZ Top Cover to the things besides Mentos candy that will make Diet Coke fizz to volcanic proportions.
