2012 Club 90 Utah, playing Addicted To Love for the 2nd time. Our singer misses his entrance, which was fine. Just wait for the progression to come back around right? WRONG! He comes in midway through the progression. Because of the bouncy bass line, I have no way to shift gears that fast. The song is completely off-kilter till the "you like to think that you're immune to the stuff" line. Afterward, singer says, "I knew I was coming in early, but you guys should've adjusted" ASSHOOOOOOOLE!
2 years earlier, same club playing "I'll Never Let You Go" by whoever it was. I've been steaming all night because lead guitarist is loud as hell with an ugly, brittle tone. Finally look over at him and yell "Turn the f**k DOWN!" and completely blow the middle vocal section of the song, leaving us all flubbing for 8 bars or so.
2016 in Hartford CT playing She's So High. I've adapted to how my guitarist plays the little arpeggio intro and again before the last verse, because he doesn't quite play it right. At the end I usually let him go through it once before I start singing. This time I came in right with him because I'd figured out the timing. But he was so used to me waiting he panicked and skipped to the next section of the verse. We're literally looking at each other onstage trying to see who will make the next move so the other can try to adjust. Utter disaster.
