    I put my back out picking it up on friday.

    Unfortunately on the way to the gig, not afterwards.

    My own stupid fault - I was in a hurry and wasn't straight onto the amp when I lifted it so my back was slightly twisted.

    Anyway to make 'light' of it has anyone got any funny one liners to finish the sentence

    ...the rest of the band shows up late to every gig or practice so they don't get "guilted" into helping carry your rig...:D

    ...your band would rather set up behind the Port-a-Pottys than help carry your amp up to the stage.
