    at least the audiance is paying attention to the bass player !!
     
  4. Nah, probably paying attention about 5 feet forward of the bassist.

    That is, hands down, the funniest thing I've seen in weeks.

    That's awesome. More of a crowd than I'm used to. It's funny because it's true.

    What you don't see in the picture is the 500 people behind that guy with the guys' fists pumping and the chicks lifting their shirts.
     
  8. Maybe he fell asleep after downing that Heineken...

    Btw, what's with the two chicks just standing on the left side of the stage?

    @JimmyM:
    Yes, you're right. I wondered about that photo, as I found it between our gig-photos: It is a matter of sight, let's have a look at the groupies of the guitarplayer:

    btw: those "chicks" are singers, but at that moment only the guitarplayer was singing....and I'm the bass-man....
     
  10. That lone empty beer bottle makes the shot so much more pathetic...it's great :D

    The old man in the wheel chair is the drummer's grandpa...the bottle is some non-alcoholic drink from the coca cola company....in Porta Westfalica beer bottles are brown :)
    But this man is our most reliable fan :D Everytime, we play, he's watchin' us.
    And mother drives him always right in front of the stage! I don't know, if he's able to hear us well, but...
    and I don't know if mother loves grandpa....I'm really not shure.... :D
     
  12. Could be a Heineken, in which case the beer bottle would be green.
     
  13. Someone needs to photoshop him throwin the devil horns at you.


    Looks like a Rolling Rock beer to me.

    That pic rocks!
     
  14. Don't ruin this great gig picture with the truth and explanations - it's so much better unexplained... :)
