Re: Any "Idiot Soundguy" stories?
There is nothing worse than paying to see someone play live and then seeing a soundguy mess with everything the entire show.
I have walked up to sound guys and asked for my money back because they have ruined shows.
Once played in a battle of the bands and the winners got to open for Kenny Wayne Shepperd. The sound for each band was done by the same soundguy and we all sounded like crap.
Then miraculously, the last band comes on and WHAMO, they sound great.
Well, they end up winning. So after the show we start asking about the sound guy and it turns out he was their sound guy, but he was contracted to do the sound by the promoters at the BOTB, because he gave them a good rate for using his sound gear.
I'm still pissed.
But we probably did suck. With his help, we just sucked more than we normally would have.
Mr. Wizardneck, why did you have to bring this up. LOL
