anyone deal with hecklers before? i did a few times. in my old band, we would play shows in the basement of a local pizza place. it was known for having sketchy folks and scumbags hang out there, and the staff were total assholes. it was the only free place for all ages, so it was good for exposure. my guitar player was doing a solo, a david gilmour thing (since it was a big 6/8 rocking thing). this guy comes up during the song and starts talking shit to him. this is the nicest kid i know, and the crowd was going wild. he then starts doing the jack off gesture to him. when we ended the song, he's still there, so i go to the mic and say, "sir, you there, come to the front again." he says nothing, then i say "come on, front and center.......oh now you shut up? you only talk shit when the other guy can't do anything about it, you big pussy?" he then starts "but.....yeah...your guitar player is ripping off pink floyd." ppl start to booing him, and i say "well no one here is giving you shit for ripping off boy george's wardrobe!" (he was wearing a vest and bowler hat) ppl start cracking up. he then comes running to the stage, screaming "you're fucked!!!" to which i step out of his way and extend my leg, he trips and we toss him out the nearby back stage door. i then say, "don't talk shit if you're afraid to eat it!" people were cheering and we had an amazing rest of the show. anyone else have a good heckler story?
