This was in 2010, in front of about 500 people, my wife was shocked that I actually allowed the "pirate" to get me down there, normally there's no way I would have done anything like this. I think he picked me because in those extremely dodgy shorts he must have thought I was up for a laugh rolleyes.gif We were rocking the old air guitars to a metal sound track biggrin.gif

Anyone else got any embarrassing pics like this? laugh.gif Click on them for the full size embarrassment tongue.gif






Cheers

Phil

Hehehe this is awesome! smile.gif
Seems like you rocked that stage smile.gif

I personally suck at air guitar but the drummer in our band does it so well and hilariously, he should join competitions for that hehe

Unfortunately, I don't have a pic but a funny moment was during setting up for a gig performance, I have set everything up - plugged my bass into amp, adjusted the tone and brought up volume and than when I was ready, I was just standing still all happy that I managed to setup everything in 2 minutes and faster than other band members when it happened : BOOOOMMM my bass fell off the strap and hit the wooden floor. Roar from the fall and from the bass amp. Audience just few meters away started laughing laugh.gif

To contribute in not having a chance to catch the falling bass, I think I had my hands in the trousers pockets or next to my body, not holding the guitar.

hahaha it was very embarrassing, but I got the job! cool.gif
