GUEST,dan keding BS: Your funniest gig anecdote (38) RE: BS: Your funniest gig anecdote 06 Apr 01

Neighbors, It was too many years ago but it was a gig not to forget. I'd been really sick with a bad case of the flu - fever, chills, head ache, muscle ache - you all know the feeling. I should have stayed home but I didn't. I went to the gig because, as we all have experienced, I needed the money. For the first time in years I actually sat while I sang and told stories. I was in the middle of this long ballad when suddenly I fell asleep - just slumped over the guitar and dozed off. I woke before I opened my eyes and I knew what I'd done but wasn't quite sure what the audience was doing. I slowly raised my head and the whole audience was very quietly looking at me, sometimes whispering among themselves. I finsihed the set and quickly left the stage. I asked one of my friends how long I was "out" and he said about five or six minutes. He said the audience just sat and waited for me to wake up and finish, but they waited quietly so I'd wake up naturally. Audiences just don't come any better than that.
