This is a question Rock and Roll Stories

My personal Spinal Tap moment came when we got locked into the Festival Hall in London by accident. We ended up wandering the maze of backstage corridors carrying a three foot high piece of cheese looking for the one door that would lead us to salvation.

What goes on tour may stay on tour, but B3ta doesn't count. Tell us everything.

Another band I have done a lot of work for are a Japanese metal band called Electric Eel shock - a fantastic three piece, very priest/sabbath influenced who play a really wild show - drummer wears nothing but a single sock, beer is devoured with gusto on stage, and there is much in the way of thrashing guitars and leaping from marshall stacks - a very energetic and entertaining show, and one Ithoroughly suggest you check out.

However, backstage they completely change - They are the most polite, amiable and friendly people you could meet with some very strange habits - being not a supergroup they often have to rely on staying at fans houses on tour. Whilst the manager Bob Slayer will trawl your house and drink you dry of all alcoholic and household cleaning liquids, the rest of the band have been known to completely clean their hosts house in gratitude. And Aki, the lead guitar/vocalist is also one of Japan's top Fishing journalists - you will often find him interviewed backstage not by guys from Kerrang! but by the Angling Times about Carp he has caught from various London Canals or Japanese lakes.

Don't for a minute let that put you off - they ROCK!
