    Well, of course, I looked on YouTube for a video of a drummer falling through a trap door on stage (along with the kit would have been nice). Sadly, I couldn't locate one; however, Justin Bieber came to my aid:

  3. Sir Paul fell in the trapdoor once too, no fog needed.

    Drummers are not very popular on stage.

    Blast from the past:


    The responsorial psalm is:
    The Lord is not deaf. Turn that crap down.

    The Lord is not deaf. Turn that crap down.
    Though thou think'st thy noise is joyful,
    It is annoying to all the people,
    And thy stage props are dangerous.

    The Lord is not deaf. Turn that crap down.

    How shall one praise THE LORD,
    Who knows thy innermost thoughts?
    With microphones and amplifiers,
    And unsecured, top-heavy constructions?

    The Lord is not deaf. Turn that crap down.

    Yea, though thy amps and PA be crunk to 11,
    Even so, THE LORD shall not heed thee,
    For He is probably watching CBS Sunday Morning,
    With everyone else as old as He is.

    The Lord is not deaf. Turn that crap down.

    Thanks be to Ged. :thumbsup:
  9. Reminds me of a few years ago I was in the Gym doing a Les Mills Body Combat class and the instructor shuffled to the left a bit too much and shuffled right off the stage......

    Years ago I toured with a Blues Brothers tribute. Playing sax back then, not bass. The horn section was on a riser at the back of the stage. We were quite a long way up, easily 8 feet. No rail at the back. Which was OK until the trumpet player forgot there was nothing but thin air behind us, stepped back for his big build up towards the end of his solo in Minnie the Moocher and - bam. Into the void, with a noise like a strangled cat in a drainpipe. It happens!
  12. I also played sax before bass!
    That story is hilarious

  13. Walk on stage with a trumpet
    Head home with a broken trum-bone

    @dadglasser, is it possible for something to be funny and harsh at the same time?
    If so, I think that qualifies. :woot:

    What if you can get your whole band to do that?
    Check up at the 8:00 mark and wait for Tony Levin's antics!
