For me It was my Orlando performance w/
Pigface when I played my grocery cart.I
warned the sound man that we should check
the levels and he said oh what could some
bastard w/ a grosery cart,a couple of
wrenches,a humbucker,and some maestro
pedals do.I drowned out pigface w/ flanging
percussion.Funny as hell.They paid me in free
Newkies(corporate{yuk}sponsor) and I got so
drunk I forgot my MS1202.Needless to say
someone from the club(The EDGE in Orlando
ya F'ers) took my shite.Anyway I played a
follow up gig in ATL,and they asked me to play
the rest of the tour w/ them but leave my
friend(Erich dumped a bag of wrenches and
metal rods on the bass player from TKK's
Boss pedal board{couldn't handle the
newkies}) behind.I should have done it but all
they offered was $20,gas money and free
beer(now that I think about it that's pretty good
for bangin on a grocery cart).So that'
s my strangest gig/gigs.What's your's.

H-Still got my pigface band pass though.No
it's not a filter it's a laminated card

When I had a piano recital in 4th grade, I like totally forgot to take the D.S. al coda.

I really should play out more often.

played bass in a speed metal band called Death Toll   and...dunno...4th or 5th gig...Reseda Country Club and my buddy takes me out back before the show and lights a big one...in STRONG stuff

I was so high I practically forgot the first two songs, then I got in such a panic over that I nearly freaked out and ran off stage. My mouth was as dry as a mouth could EVER possibly be and the in singer wouldnt share his water!!!!!

then there was our FIRST gig..well....heh...it was embarrassing

whole band was on pills (downers) and no sleep the
nite before...this soccer club walks in the bar
and our fukd up singer promptly dives onto their
table from the stage! it was a pretty high stage
too...the rest of the band just argued our way
thru the set..we also played the same song TWICE
in a row once...but i generally kick ass on stage :-)

well wasnt really ed up but it also was ed up... only with bands you get those ups I find when the human x-factor gets involved... we did a gig in Germany and the guitarist was so busy chatting up some girl that he didnt get his shit together prior to going onstage... halfway into song number 3 or 4, he breaks a string and realises he's got no locking-nut key on him, so he has to go offstage, find the manager to go and open the changing room which was locked to get his locking-nut allen-key... we ended up playing most of the set without him.... and sadly we sounded better without him too - ha ha musta been devine providence cos we sacked him after that

Mid 80s, playing with a prog metal band, little dive in eastern Oklahoma. We had to play "Sweet Home Alabama" five times in one night - due to some "truly heartfelt," and obnoxious drunken requests... Felt like the Blues Brothers playin' Rawhide....

I still can't just sit and appreciate "Sweet Home Alabama" properly...

Then there was the two nights I got seriously drunk and ended up in the pokey for gettin' naked on the stage... However, I really dunna remember too much of either of those nights.

can't say i've had any bad ones, although it might be noted that i've opened a show by hitting myself over the head with a biscuit tin, and that this wasn't bad.
