i dunno if this entirely counts as a real gig, but when i was 13 (last year)i played at six flags

edit: we'd done things at school before, but i think thats the closest thing to a real gig, and the reason i dunno if it counts, is because we only played like 5 songs, couse we just played during the break of another band

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

mynamesedson, i think you misunderstand what doing a gig is
it's when YOU play, not another band

When i was 10. I went to go see Overkill

So you just randomly went up on stage with Overkill, snatched the lead guitarist's guitar, kicked him down from stage and played the rest of the songs that night, or what?

I was 14, talent contest at my school which was a kind of uptight Academy. We came in with our crappy half stacks turned all the way up and rang that tin gynasium. People came up and complaned their ears were ringing after just one song! IT WAS AWESOME!!!

When I was 13.. we just played one song "Back in Black"

It was going really well, infront of about 300 people.

I walked up to the front of the stage to do the first guitar solo, for my moment of glory!.... And the amp cut out! Bastard.
