Playing Superman On A Drum Case

Early show, third band in, not too busy, think I’ll go in the back, get some supplies. I walk around the bar, toward the stage, I’m just about ready to get to the ramp on the side of the stage, and


I am sprawled out on top of drum cases. The kick drum case, to be exact. Imagine, if you will, you were trying to be funny, you wanted to act like you’re Superman, and doing it laying ON TOP of a drum case. Arms and legs extended in the air. You might have your big phone in your right hand, for some reason, like I have.

And I stay like that for a good 23 seconds. And what do you think I do? The first thing I do? Yeah…I look around if someone had seen me. Guess what? Oh, I don’t know, about 40 people see me. I think the band on stage playing actually stopped what they were doing to see this dunce trying to play Superman on a big drum case.

This did not go without injury. Nay. I slammed so hard on it, I bruised my chest. I don’t know how else to describe it, because by the time I got out of my Superman pose, everything was sore.

I have to say, when I was looking around at the CROWD of people staring at me, nobody was really laughing.

I appreciated that.
