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.

I could write a book.....
memorable moments are:

Laughing my nuts off at the guitar tech who had been tuning a local bands guitars for half of a gig with a faulty tuner (and laughing more loudly coz they were blaming the sound guys)

staring blankly at the horrendous rider and spec sheet that girls aloud had sent our promoter for a 20 minute "set" that had a backing CD and 3 live mics, and laughing when they cancelled at the last minute and where replaced by liberty X

sitting in a vip room in derry at an Alex P and brandon block gig, and getting rat arsed on free booze coz my mate told the muppets I was blocky... and even blocky was in on it...

watching a saw docters gig in bandit country when they had a full 25k rig and 50 people turned up (fair play they did thier set anyway)

getting an eyefull when Ultrasonics dancers got changed beside the stage (using me as a shield)

using my band pass and triple A's to get into/out of clubs even when i was not actually working

watching the bottles and glasses fall off bar shelves when we kicked the 40k rig into life (after warning the promoter 3 times not to put the bar close to the stage)

and many others that will stay in memory as to publish them may result in serious legal problems. (clue: certain big name DJ's with major drug/drink habits and who use tapes and backing cd's at all thier gigs, as they can't work the decks coz they are usually stoned/drunk/wasted)

btw... its true what they say, the groupies will do almost anything to get at the lead singer... and you will have to pay them to have a go at the drummer... :-)
