Okay, well this one time I was in York with Gilmore and Beck; Beck was getting ready for some show and asked Gilmore (he wasn't on tour at the time) and I if we wanted to accompany him in "'Cause We've Ended As Lovers". His touring guitarist at the time was ill after some dealer loaded him up (and I think he ended up with food poisoning as well), so he was pulling favors. (I hooked up with his sister at an old Byrd's show, but you can exclude this part considering that it is a school paper) thats the favor that he had on me.

Anyway, we were walking down the street towards the pub for a little preshow "warm-up" while the tech's were handling the set-up. We found some dinky little whole-in-the-wall place called "The Old Basterd". I remember the paint on the door being peeled and the front windows barred with the glass cracked. The damn place was a mess, in some desolate alley. If it weren't for a crude neon sign we wouldn't have even noticed it behind the dumpsters and drunkards lying out front. As we approached Gilmore practically panic'd. Saying that we could go find some bloody coffee shop or something, but Beck just shot me this look. He is the type of guy that is always going after a challenge, even now that we are ancient and useless, his teeth stick out and his eye would squint together ever so slightly as if he wanted to just jump in blindly to whatever trouble he could find. We ignored Gilmore and busted that pale door open.

The place was as old and cryptic as the bar keep. Some balding old Scotsman who didn't speak the entire time. I walked up and barked out for a glass of Daniels. (Although my tastes have changed into a scotch person now). Without a word the barkeep got to work.

While I was waiting, I turned around and noticed that Beck was already chatting up some busty redhead who was sitting alone at a booth next to the door. I remember she had lovely green eyes, and was a whiskey drinker herself, and the funny part was that she gave zero ****s about Beck even though he walked up and declared "Hey babe, im a rockstar." He always came on way too strong, overconfident son of a bitch that he was.

"Bug off. I've got a man." The redhead retorted with a velvet voice.

"I don't see him." Beck sat down in the tattered red booth and put his arm around her. The woman's cheeks turned as red as her hair.

"Yeah, well I do." and she pointed to the barkeep who was holding my drank. His eyes full of rage.

"What baldy over there? You could be spending your time in a nicer place than this dump."

At this point, the Scotsman threw the glass of whiskey (yes, we weren't here for more than two minutes at this point) and it shattered just barely missing Beck's head. Gilmore screamed and ran out of the bar, I jumped out of my seat at the counter and yelled "Beck, lets get the **** out of here!"

Instantly the bar keep calmed down. "Wait, Beck? Jeff Beck? I've got tickets for your show tonight." His voice was so deep and weary, almost like a damn wizard. After hearing the man finally speak my jaw dropped.

"How would you feel about back stage passes, my friend?" Beck replied. His arm still comfortably fit around the woman's shoulder.

Long story short, Beck hooked up with the bar keep's woman. I finally got my drink. And Gilmore ran back to the venue and hid in the van until the show later that night. Proving the age old pick-up-line of "Hey babe, im a rockstar."

So we were sitting in the bar after a gig well actually it was me, the bass player and one other guy who wasn't in the band, and then their girlfriends, but then the singer and the drummer were outside (we could see them through the window) so the other guy who was sitting inside with us pulled down his own pants and pressed his ass against the window well the band members walked away but then these two cigar-smoking greasers walked by and thought he was mooning them so they walked inside all tough-like and said "you wanna ask us something?" and the other guy just smiled and said "yeah... what kind of cigar are you smoking?" and the greasers flicked their cigars at him we all laughed it was one of many funny things that night true story.
