    Dumb... IMO of course.
    Oh, I read it a few times. However, that was after the guy brought the stuff to a gig planning on using it and we got no sound from the amps 30 minutes before start time. We ended up using 2 of the powered monitors as the mains. Luckily it was very low key gig at a restaurant.

    • I was hired at the last minute to work sound at a small local venue. Was chatting with the band as they were loading in as I had no idea what kind of music I was dealing with. Got the usual info - inputs, mics, etc.

      Me: So, tell me about your style; how do you like to sound out front?
      Lead screamer: Very loud and very drunk.
      Me: You got it.

      They were true to form, but actually sounded decent. Wound up having to mix with my ear protection from the gun range as the overall volume was just stupid in the small venue. We're talking 2 half stacks and an Ampeg 8x10 for an audience of 30-40 or so folks. The good news is that the much quieter main act sounded fabulous by comparison.

        Speaking of loud, a buddy of mine saw Slayer the other night in a 525-cap club. I'm still waiting to hear how loud it was. :-)

        • On second thought, I think I'll hold off on adding any new stories based on the censorship I see happening in OJ. I guess we're still G rated.

            If you're still a Mod you could post something and see if you are immediately overwhelmed with a compulsion to ban yourself ?

              • Well, this still exists! I think I'll reread it all. Hard to believe so many years have passed by.

                I hope that all of you are alive and well, and that some of you are still posting here.

                      It was a small cat so a very slow drag.
