I saw this posted on Blabbermouth today and just had to post about it here, it’s too funny to pass up! On the other hand, there’s a lesson to be learned here.
Minnesota based metal band SI6KS were holding a CD release party/show and apparently their guitarist had been celebrating way too much (translation: drunk!). Here is the video of the drummer coming to his breaking point:
Did you catch the bassist’s comment as well? Too funny! I don’t think I would want to get that guy mad, he’s one big dude!
Anyways, here’s the lesson to be learned. Whether your band has a gig, release party, signing session, whatever it may be. Remember to represent your band first and foremost, and take care of your own personal pleasures second. Not only could you avoid what happened in this video, but it will also help your band in many other ways. The better you play, the better the chance you will spur CD sales, return show visitors, word of mouth. The list can go on and on.
The only positive thing about what happened that night is, hey, any press is good press!
