Everyone always tells these stories, and I've never seen it before... until now.. Last night I went out to see my friends' band. There was a medium sized crowd, but everyone seemed to be drinking and having a great time. The band before my friends' was rocking pretty hard, really solid 3 piece. This guy sitting not too far from us got up and sort of wandered towards the stage, at first looking like he was just getting up close to the band. Then he wandered up on the stage and picked up the guitar (the singer/guitar player had sat down to play keys for a few songs). My friends and I are looking at each other trying to figure out if this guy is just super drunk or a friend of the band. It became quickly apparent he was just super drunk. The band was totally professional throughout... although the bass player kept giving drunk guy looks like he was about to set down his bass and kick his butt. After the song, they took the guitar back from the guy and send him back to his friends. Keep playing, sounding great. A few songs later drunk guy wanders back up to the stage. (We don't know why his friends weren't stopping him). He starts to pick up the guitar again. This time several of the other musicians in the audience all surrounded the guy. The band got to stopping point in the song, and the singer stopped and yelled at the guy (but he was still nice about it!). Finally one of drunk guy's friends came and got him, and escorted him out. Really weird.... I was very impressed with how the band handled it though. As they say... the show must go on.
