Requests from the audience - some of us hate it, some of us don't mind. Does anybody ever get good requests? I would flip out if someone asked me to play Birdland, or Continuum (especially because I've been practicing them lately), but I don't think it would ever happen when you are in a Blues band. Unfortunately it's stuff like "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" or something like that that people ask for. So what is the best and worst request that you ever played (or didn't)? My best had to be back in 1989 when someone requested Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth). I loved watching the smartass drop his jaw when I borrowed the guitarist's distortion pedal, and the drummer and I cranked it out. Thank God for "Guitar for the Practicing Musician". The worst was about 5 years ago when I was in a Chicago Style blues band, when some woman asked us if we new any "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell with a straight face.
