I watched a covers band at my local last weekend, great musicians and a setlist to match, they put on quite a show. However, my attention was drawn more to the ingenious set-up that their four-stringer employed in order to quench his thirst during the show: Now, we all know that the bass player is generally the innovative and resourceful one in any band but I did think that there might be a flaw in his plan - that bassists also drink like fish and thus the beer holder might be redundant after no time at all. Our man certainly looked to be in danger of having such a problem, polishing off his first pint within three or four songs. Did he panic? Did he hell, he simply turned around between tracks and grabbed the second pint he had hidden behind his rig. As soon as that was guzzled, he grabbed a third! For the record, the band went by the name Johnny Seven.
