Jim, my question is a little more in depth.

Do you have any bad concert memories that still haunt you?

In the same vein, when did you have the most fun at a venue?

I've got a concert related question. During my very first Weird Al concert (San Luis Obispo, 6/22/03) Al threw the stool he was trying to sit on, when it kept falling over, and it hit one of your guitars. Have you ever had an instrument, or yourself, injured during a concert?

To reiterate the inital question, any really bad concrt memories that haunt you? I would prefer you not mention the venue, but just a general description would suffice. Along with that, when did you discover at a concert where you were performing that you finally made it and that all the work was worthwhile and awesomely cool?

I have a GREAT picture of the "ding" where the hoe hit Jim. The funny thing was him explaining it to a lady who asked what had happened. Jim said "I was on stage and got hit by a hoe (ho)!"! The lady was a little perplexed until it was explained that it was a garden variety "hoe" and not a city variety "Ho"!

Funny stuff.

Thanks,
Jim


The music video was so funny.

Al and those guy charge through the subway yelling "Hooooooooooooooooo!"

Then Al gets a hoe and says "Hoe"

or at the end he gets his fingers in a mouse trap. :lol:
