    So I'm playing with this 70's funk band Saturday night, and during my solo, the lead singer dangles a pair of fuzzy dice between my legs, and all these ladies in a bachelorette party take turns coming up and playing with them and making a big show out of it! Nothing like trying to concentrate on doing a good solo with all this action goin' on, uh, down THERE... :p

    Indeed -- this wasn't too bad at all. :) This gig was downtown at Harlow's.

    heh heh heh ...Yeah baby, Sac rocks!! (Get it -- sac rocks? Yeah, OK then, alright...)


    Dude! Sometimes when we play it practically feels like an orgy on stage. I am married, and my wife wasn't there (I can't pick up any groupies without her approval, of course! :) and she does the groupie thing damn well herself, anyway -- one of the reasons I married her!)

    Anway, these two girls would NOT leave us alone backstage:

    I thought the drummer invited them back because they were hanging around me and him, but afterward he said he'd never seen them, so I guess they just invited themselves. They were pretty toasted.

    That site has some good samples of the crowd that night. For example...

    And this shot isn't nearly as nice as that one, but for bass content I like it (this is before my fuzzies came out -- I think they were just on their way):

    Weird thing is I don't remember anyone taking pictures that night.

    You know, I can't remember, now that you mention it... I was thinking something about playing bass, and then... damn, no problem whatsoever!! :) And I got paid... Life is good.
     
  11. In a perfect world, all shows would be like that.
     
  12. Must be hard as hell.







































    I'm talking about keeping up with the playing, of course.

    If you didn't live in CA, I would've thought the lady in the picture rubbin' your fuzz was the vice principal of my old elementary school! :eek:

    why is it usually the butt ugly women that will be the most forward?

    I know...the answer is in the question. BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO!

    Hey, dude, you're not really complaining. you're BRAGGING. You could've easily stepped back if you don't want to be "fondled"

    lol :) Well, I don't know about bragging since it was such a goofy thing, but you're right about the complaining being tongue in cheek... Though I do like to be able to concentrate on being as musical as possible in my only showcase for the night, you gotta give the people what they want, right? Stepping back would just be sending the wrong message about bass player accessibility -- you know, man of the people and all that. ;)

    And as for girls' looks vs. aggressiveness, that's not my experience actually. I think the correlation between alcohol consumption and aggressiveness is much greater.

    I like the dice idea...I may try it myself! lol
     
  19. Hand the dice from the lower horn on your bass and 'wear' them all night. Or hang them from your belt buckle.
