Eromlig Agree on Manzarak but I must admit Morrison sold it as well as anyone ever could’ve except Val Kilmer.When I quit playing out and morphed into a booking agent I’d sometimes be at a loss to find something good to say about some of the ham and egg bands that approached me. Not wanting to insult anyone I came up with a standard reply to a situation like this: I’m at a club to see the owner about doing some business and the band he’s got for the night goes on break and sees me. Here’s how it typically went: “Hey, Steve! Thanks for stopping in. How’s it sound???” I know I’ll never book these guys but I was always able to smile and tell them, “You guys never sounded better!!!” and they just beamed!
But enough about me. Tonight’s bon mot is another band bum joke.Ready?
What do you call a guitar player that breaks up with his girlfriend?
Mic drop! Silver. Out!
