  1. and the guitarist broke his knee.

    do I sit in a chair aswell (not in the same one) and look boring or stand up and play... and look boring?

    I am gonna stand but I thought I'd mention how it sucks for my guitarist.... we now have to load all of his crap.

    I am sure this may end up being a story after friday as this is 3 flights of stairs to get to the vehicle from the jam room.

    Any other stories of band mates or people playing well... broken?

    Should probably do a search but I am off to bed

    props to the guitar player for sticking it out, the show must go on, and all that. You other guys shouldn't change anything, that would just make it weird looking. I once played a gig 8 hrs post-op from surgery on a torn rotator cuff & torn bicep. Both were on my left side, right where the bass strap rides. I got through ok, thanks to vitamin V (Vicoden). Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment, but I dig overcoming injuries/illnesses/adversity so that the gig can go on. As if my lack of talent isn't enough to overcome on an every gig basis. :D
  4. cover for him? man, he has like 120lbs or something on me

    I get it... don't worry

    Buzz... props... just props man.
