    Sort gig story. Once at a convention gig, the CEO wanted to address the conventioneers. So, he came up on stage and did his speech etc. As he was leaving the stage, he asked me what happened to the breeze. Of course, I've got this puzzled look on my face as all sorts of possibilities went through my mind. Then he pointed down to the monitors and asked "Aren't those fans?" I then explained what their function was. He said he had always thought that they were fans for keeping cool at hot venues and on stages. That was a new one for me, but I guess to the average guy, that could be a logical assumption. Maybe even a good idea. Attach a fan to the monitor! Who knows? :cool:

    Monitor as a fan? Now that's some deep excursion.

    The port on a monitor can give you a puff of air.

    I want to build a fan monitor now. That would actually be incredibly easy.

    Steve Vai uses them...
  8. I had a few comments about how my guitars were made of wood and not plastic like "those other guys on TV".

    We had a thread about stupid stuff non-musicians tell you, it died, unfortunately but you can dig it up, there are funny ones.
  9. You could do it pretty easily if you were designing a powered monitor.

    It seems like a lot to haul a monitor box with a dinky fan in it to a gig. if your hot, get one of those big stainless steel 2" industrial jobs and stick it in front of you. then you aren't hauling a stupid monitor box around.

    Two in one is cool though.

    You're right. Better to get rid of that crappy JBL stuff and be really cool. ;)

    Does it sound like a Leslie? :cool:
