    Re: My new Rukus Custom Snare!

  11. Re: Wierd things that have happend when playing gigs.

    There was the time 40 years or so ago when my band was in the middle of "Rock Lobster" and someone approached the stage with a (barely) live lobster! I don't know what he expected us to do with it. ...
