Mine happened last night on a small stage. Our lead guitarist likes to bring a plastic storage bin with the band’s logo on stage, plop it in front of his amp (and the drummer’s riser) and use that as a foot rest as he does solos throughout the show. Normally, he has a lot of cables (and assorted crap) in there to weigh it down. Last night, for some reason, he hardly had anything in there. So he swings his foot up there to plant it for his solo, and the thing stands straight up causing him to nearly take a dive. Well I did a bit of inward grinning as we averted a near disaster. So our guitarist recovered, played his solo, and then righted the plastic bin just in time for his second solo. You guessed it, he did it again. Only this time, he manages to move our rhythm singer’s monitor 90-degrees. Hello feedback. At least she had the presence of mine to minimize the feedback. Then she simply stared at the monitor for a minute wondering what to do. She eventually, using one foot, moved it so that it was more at a 45-degree angle facing her. Well at this point I was bustin’ a gut — the inward grin became a series of outward giggles. Couldn’t help it. The good thing is that we all kept the groove going smack dab through it all. So what’s tickled your funny bone while on a gig?
