Reading thru the posts, it seems that a lot of members have a lot of experience playing in working bands and in some not so nice bars.
I've played in every type of dive that you can imagine and I got a chuckle out of this item.

Just reading thru the latest GP and in the column "The Working Grunt", Nicky Garratt sums up some of his experience playing small clubs and dives.
I paraphrase ... "Small gigs have an altogether different set of problems ......... or the loser who thinks it's funny to unplug your guitar.

Got a good laugh out of that.
