  1. guitarists...can't live with the or without them......

    We got through our gig and last night and besides a sloppy set and one possessed mic stand we remained failry happy. Yes..it was my mic and it started to move down during one song leaving said bass player (me) in the classic Hetfield pose, splayed legs, trying to sing in the most uncomfortable position imaginable...ie 90 kgs, legs apart, trying to get hte words out.

    We also decided to do a tribute song for the late
    Johnny(sp) Ramone. We had a "guest" sing it for some reason....and it all started OK....guitarist in wrong key for 7 bars, but hey..... Then first round of "Hey Ho"s went very well. Into the song and all was great up until the next set of "HH"s. Drummer, me and "guest" stop but allas it was lost on the guitarist. Managed to cover it all up somehow but the impact was lost. Ironic...yeah, because it was the guitarist song we chose!!!!!!

    :hyper:
