Anyone had any accidents or incidents happend during a live show? smile.gif


I have one..
It's been a number of years since i played live, but one time i almost managed to light the floor on fire.
During a break in a song, i fired up a cigarette.. and when it was time to start playing again, i placed the cig on a railing that covered the side of the stage, and being me.. i forgot about it.
Vibrations caused the cig to fall down, and offcourse.. it landed on the carpets we had placed on the floor smile.gif

Not long after i sensed some smoke in the air, and thought: "Eyh, we dont have a smokemachine", and i turn around and see a soundguy stomping like a maniac on the carpet.

Well, i guess it would have been funnier to see it in action.. but i thought i would share anyway smile.gif

Too many but here's my fav wink.gif

Maybe 10 years ago I had a demo bend,rehearsal "room" was a gallery(5 meters height)
above main stage in local concert hall.
Important thing is,that was an open gallery with only small fence around 30cm height.
And some "wise" guy putted a blanket as "wall" to make some privacy for bend or som.
So,we were playing for few hours,
we took a break and I wanted to have a rest on the wall with my backs.... blink.gif
I was falling down turned back my head in leading position laugh.gif
Luckily,I have had those Ninja reflexes so I grab the fence with my legs
while tearing the blanket with my right hand and holding guitar with my left hand laugh.gif

I thought it was wall,so what? dry.gif laugh.gif

This isn't about guitar, its about my school band concert. I was getting up to go onstage (this was my first concert) and i go, beaver dam, i dont have my music! so i run, tear through my teachers private music to find it, and run back out onto the stage late. then i forgot one, so i had to play it by memory. (that didn't work out to well)

i tripped and broke my guitar's neck. :(

First is a story about mine screw up.. just a short 1.. Was playing a christmas assembly in highschool.. Basically the song starts with a combination of christmas carols played on guitar and bass. After the last bit is played i have to hit distortion and play a single powerchord going into the heavy part of the song smile.gif Well my pedal was a little far away and well i hit it a little too hard and kicked out my patch chord.. and this song completely relies on when i come in. So instead of the whole band starting and me fixing my mess and carrying on.. i have to go fix my pedal and then play the chord again ( talk about embarrassing)

Second story is one i heard from my bassist. He is also a saxaphonist. Playing a show with highschool again he goes to grab his music and go on stage. He can't find it. So instead he grabs a tuba part and transposes the whole thing on the spot. After doing this in a frantic haste he runs on stage just to have 1 of the Tuba players asking the band why he has sax music and not a tuba part biggrin.gif the fact that he had to transpose a 30 minute peice in about 10 minutes right before he ran on stage made me chuckle a bit smile.gif

I got off the stage after a pretty big gig (competition one also)..At that time I didn't have the pedalboard so I held all my pedals etc in a plastic bag..So I got off the stage and was like crazy - Where is my bag , where is my bag ??!!! I shouted to everyone.I thought I left it on stage.In all excitement I didn't notice that I had my bag in my hands all the time smile.gif hehehehe

Oh, man, I do that all the time! biggrin.gif I spend 10 minutes looking for something before realizing it's in my hand or pocket. Another thing that annoys the heck out of me is when I set stuff down in random places without noticing it, while I'm walking around or something, and then I can never find whatever it is later on. Or when someone hands me something, and I don't notice. Until 10 minutes later, when I realize it and go, "How the heck did this get in my hand?!" laugh.gif I love being an idiot.
