    Yeah I'm guilty of that on newer songs I haven't done much. But I never had all the lyrics. Just like the first two words of each verse in big print so I didn't scramble the verses. Even then, I never felt it was 100% if I had to look at em.

    All this hate for hats I cannot understand. But I dont care. I’ll wear what ever I want. I mean I have seen dudes my age wearing wigs, yes wigs, and not for comedic effect, the comedic effect was just an added bonus. I was once in a band (recently) that proposed that “we” wear wigs... I summarily made my exit... I can humiliate myself just fine without the use of a wig..:p

    Well, this is a picture of the mansquatch himself, Greg Koch. And Greg, being 6'7" and being able to play rings around damn near anyone on Earth (Steve Vai says about him "this guy's a freak". Steve Vai.), I think he maybe gets the hat exemption.

    I just wish I didn't have to type all that in defense of a beret, ouch. Haven't seen him where anything but a beanie in years now. :eek::confused:

    The mistake was putting it down the front, right? I hear tucking it down the back gets a lot more attention

    Some folks sure take light-hearted threads seriously.

    I notice that a lot here. Some folks must have a sense of humour failure after about 40.

    I'm glad it didn't happen to me. I can still laugh at myself. Saves everybody else doing it :)

    That's less audience participation than it is coordinated idiocy.

    I've played shows where I've taught the crowd a part of one of our originals, and they picked up on it at the right time and it was an absolute blast.

    Nervousness. I have seen guitar players that can’t stand still. I think it’s okay to move around a little bit, but to constantly be moving makes me, as an observer, nervous.

    I used to have a certain pair of pants that when worn with a specific pair of boots made me look like a pirate, so I got rid of both items. Arrrrgh!

    Yawning, looking bored, giving the bassist a foul look when he misses a note, avoiding eye contact with the audience. Avoid all sarcasm.

    Look like you're having fun, and wear whatever you lke, as long as it's not a safari suit.

    Oh , and I forgot to add:
    No inflatable penises, and no pair of socks in your undies to make you look ... bigger.
