Your favorite band stories:

One of the most memorable moments in recent history is getting hit with a Micro-Burst while performing at WestFest. We were all fighting to save our equipment and keep from getting blown off the stage. It blew our equipment all over the place. Luckily it only damaged our PA Head. That was repairable. The Fire Marshall was yelling at us to get the hell out of there. We didn't leave the stage until our equipment was relatively safe. Dumb, next time (if there is one) I run.
Oh I've go more like my defibrillator going off while at a Blues Jam at Booth Brothers Theater. Absolutely, Shocking!...D
