    Anybody out there have a good band nickname? Drummer in my jazz band calls me "QNW" (Quarter Note Whore).

    I was the defacto BL in a now defunct band ... they called me PHB ... Pointy Haired Boss ... an allusion to the Dilbert comic strip.

    BL/singer calls me the backup man...I always bring a back up for most everything, even a back up for the back up lol. Back up head...a back up for that, DI box...back up bass, extra strings...I have lights and a dongle to run them wireless, back up is a light board and if that goes down...foot switch and slave them together.

    I'm seeing a pattern here. If they go for Harpo or Zeppo, hit them over the head with the bass.

    For a long time it was Kitty.

    A few years ago we had an out of town show blow up on us rather late in the day. So the band decided to get polluted, hang around the drummer's place and watch movies. Monsters Inc. came on and the scene where the little girl first sees Sulley and exclaims "Kitty!", at that point, the singer turns to me, pokes me straight in the Pillsbury Dough-boy and says "Kitty!"

    This started maybe 30 years ago. Since my middle name is Starr my duo partner started calling me Bobby Starr, long before THE Bobbi Starr was even born. Don't know who Bobbi Starr is? If you decide to google her don't do it at work or in front of children, trust me.
