If I had a band I would totally give you props for being able to drink a shitload and still play. You should've whipped it out and pissed all over the audience tho, that would've been a badass ending to ur story.

Heh. Back in eighth grade, my rhythm guitarist was jealous and he cut my strings right before the school talent show. I went to get my guitar to go on stage and it was like... what the hell?

Anyway, this one kid lent me his shitty generic guitar. I was so pissed off at this douchebag kid who cut my strings though.

Since then it's been smooth sailing. Never had anything too bad happen throughout high school.

For my first show, I was all psyched to play cuz' you know...it was my first show. I was opening for a few bands and I was really nervous. Well, turns out, the venue didn't advertise at all, so it ended up, basically, having an audience of my mom and the other band members... I felt pretty bad ass.

We just stopped telling him when we were practicing. Though I did give him a stern talking to after I found out who it was that cut the strings. I didn't know it was him right away, but some girl backstage saw him do it and told me.

I've blown tubes, broke [guitar] necks, basicly just thrashed my gear until it stopped making noise.

I think the worst accident was when someone knocked over a bottle of water on the PA rack, with around 30,000 watts of wet power amps.. That was a fun night :]

Or rammed his f*cking guitar up his fudgetunnel. That'll stop him cutting your strings.

Never gigged with my band so I don't have any good stories. But a while ago at band practice, we were solo unlucky. I opened up my Les Paul hardcase to find the bridge tone knob had cracked a fell off. And then our rhythm guitarist took his Stagg electric from his bag, and one of his strings had snapped off. And the drums in the music room were missing drum sticks. took us 15 mins to find some. Really bad practice.

oh...oh dear... if someone knocked over a bottle of water onto that much wattage of power amps, i would've ripped his skin off, used it to stop the ensuing fire, then used the dry skin to clean the power amps. but that's just me.

my drummer decided to sign us up for a gig only a month after becoming a band, and thereby marking the 1 month anniversary of me playing guitar. we were so new we had a cover of an avenged sevenfold song as our opener. during the set the other guitarist stepped on and pulled out his chord. we had to stop because the levels apparently were way off and his amp was way louder than mine. then the dumbass did it again in the next song. i was so pissed. i didnt want to go to school the next day

yeah well i got a gig on the sixteenth but i think its going to suck. We are opening for the band that I just got kicked out of even tho i think were better. There band doesnt have a rythem guitarist or a bass player and we are stuck opening for them. Pretty gay if you ask me.

Had to be my first ever time playing bass in front of an audience, I played for a band who had trouble keeping members because they sucked something awful, but since the two guys who stayed in it were my friends I agreed to help them out. We got no practice, and the show was so awful, out of time, out of tune and none of us knew what we were doing. The guitarist then decided he would try to improvise over the solo in the song (Teenage Kicks) and it ended up sounding awful, because he knew shit all. I had only played bass for around two weeks mind, I had only managed to learn the song a few hours before and it was overall terrible. I wanted to cry, it was humiliating

I had the opposite of that at my last gig. It was too well advertised and the venue was packed to capacity. We got to play and there were no hitches or anything. So me and the singer went out for some air after playing and when we got back the owner wouldn't let us back in. Eventually we got back in and the gig had been called off. The owner told everyone to get out cos it was too full, and he rang police.
It was just too packed and fights kept starting round the bar. My mates band didnt get to play.

That's good imrov what you did.. musta been funny to see. A drummer I know had his kit pulled away from him mid-set by his rythm guitarist falling off the kick, so he used a top as a kick drum. Worked quite well.
#28
one gig i managed to step on my lead and pull it slightly out of my guitar, whilst the bassist was doing a solo. when it came to the end of the solo and everyone was supposed to come crashing in, my guitar made precisely no sound. embarrassing as hell!
#29
I was doing a covers gig once but before we started they blew a phase in the building, so while they were fixing it my friend ( who wasn't in the band ) and I decided we would get drunk. So by the time we got to play I really was quite drunk. Anyway halfway through the first song I walk up to my mike to start singing, do a massive stagger and fall off the stage only to be caught by my misses and her sister. The bar was really full, I felt like a right tool

Well, then people will boo the other band off the stage once you get done playing, and ask for you to come back.

Not my story but it's kinda funny anyway. There was this orchestra whose cymbal player got sick or something and they had to get this dude from Japan in to play the cymbals that night and he was supposed to be really good, like the best in the world. During that performance he only had to hit the cymbals once in the entire piece. So the piece started fine and dandy and he was counting like really good and it came to his part and no sound came from him. So the conductor comes up to him after the show and asks him why there was no sound from him and the dude says that he forgot. Kinda stupid, eh?

How do you **** up the cymbals?

Our first gig the singer's hand started bleeding halfway through cos of his nails cutting into his skin. Cue blood splattered guitar and some bad playing from him for the rest of the show

Second gig same guy broke two strings halfway through the first song. That was embarrassing, considering my guitar was already out of tune after me dropping it before we went on.

One gig in June we played, the owner of the venue started kicking everyone out because they didn't have ID, 4 of 6 bands didn't show up, there was no bass amp and the kit was a joke. It got cancelled needless to say.

That's about it, apart from that we've had it pretty smooth

Got on stage with a mates band to sing "F-kinig hostile" with them. I'd had a lot to drink and during the solo I started simulating masturbation witht the mic. At the end I realised I had been doing that in front of 100 + 13 to 14 year olds and their parents, as it was an all ages gig at a sports hall (I'm 21). That was quite embarrassing
