GUEST,JB Embarrasing moments on stage? (28) RE: Embarrasing moments on stage? 12 Dec 02


Forgetting words is one thing, but I forgot the tune. At the Gottagetgone Festival I prepared to sing the song I'd just learned from a John Roberts/Tony Barrand tape -- Nine Times a Night. The lyrics were there all right, but the tune had gotten lost. Instead of stopping and moving on, I, like a fool, kept going in the hope the melody would emerge at some point. Never did, though. All 6 verses of that a cappella song came out as some sort of folk improv. The topper was that John Roberts himself was in the audience. Gentleman that he is, he only commented that he'd never heard that tune before.
