Your favorite band stories:

In Rock Springs, Wyoming my cover band "In Stereo" was playing a big club the week after Nazareth had played the same place. Basically, it was a concert venue and not a dance club. We were playing top-40 dance music. The crowd ringed the stage in chairs and just sat there watching us. It was very unnerving so we really tried to put on a good show for them. I climbed the drum riser during a song and jumped off of it. As I jumped my foot snagged on a board at the front of the drum riser. I fell into the bass player who then fell into the two girl singers (who let out high pitched screams into their microphones) and we ended up in a heap at the front of the stage. The only person left playing was the drummer! One person in the crowd clapped and the rest of them got up and left.

I learned to never play a club that Nazareth had performed at the previous week.
