    Last Friday, we played a gig at a very small local club. However, there were alot of people there, as we have developed a pretty big following in town. We wanted to put on a super high energy show, so the guitarist and I decided we would just go nuts on stage. So, it was pretty electric at first. 2 front men, shirtless in leather jumping around and thrashing like they were in a trance. Ok, then things go south! Well, my cord got wrapped up around the drummer's bass drum somehow. I went to do a jump up in a 180 style leap and my foot got wrapped around the cord. I stumbled and tripped. About this time, the guitarist had his cord wrapped around his boot, and was all tangled up. I bumped into him. We both ended up on the floor playing. Never breaking a note. We played as best we could as we got up and untangled.

    So, you have proof this is JWC? Same ISP number or whatever?

  7. Yes but isn't it typical of JWC to trip over his own words? I mean look he even falls over during his bands set!..
