Your favorite band stories:

A repeating story:
Sam Cardon and I were in several groups together, but were too cheap to buy a sound system. About an hour before each show, we were scrambling panic-stricken to assemble a system out of home stereo systems, other band's P.A.'s etc.

I also remember playing in a 6-piece USO group out of Orem named "Sapphire" and performing for 2 men in a Turkish radar site. (Obviously no mosh pit)
