Last night I played a show, where all the bands we're being rushed to set up and breakdown faster than humanly possible. So in the midst of breaking down all fast. I loaded all of my gear, and my guitar players into my truck. When I got home, I nearly had a heart attack in my driveway...when I realized my bass wasn't in there. The show was 1 1/2 hrs. from my house, it was 1am, and I had to be at work at 9. So, needless to say, I was freaking out. I just bought that one less than a month ago (Fender Aerodyne j-bass w/hsc). I called our singer who stayed to sell some merch. He already left. Luckily I had the promoter's # who booked us...He had just left when I called. He was kind enough to go back and check for me. I am so lucky, because when he got back they were locking up, but he got in and my bass was still there where i left it. So he's holding it for me...thank god. I'm gonna do something nice for this guy...any suggestions? Anyway it was a horrible experience. I bring lots of stuff to shows, and I keep thinking "how could i forget THAT?" Guitar stands, power cords, etc..are understandable but my bass? I'm so glad someone didn't walk off with it. Anyone else have similar experiences?
