A rush-hour breakdown on the way
to a gig. Vomiting between solos. Running through Epcot Center
being chased by security on the way to a show. Sharing a bed with
the bass player and his wife. A totaled car in a blizzard on the
way to a show. A mortifying incident with a fingernail. A band
member dies ten minutes before a show. Bloody fingers from a 5-hour
gig after a gig-free two years. Playing music for dead people.
Strings and horns going out of tune in opposite directions. Rain,
hail, and oppressive heat within one 45-min gig. A total power
outage during a 10,000 person concert.
