Re: Acceptable reasons for you to get up from the drums mid song?
We nearly quit a gig before it even started. The area set aside to accommodate us was not nearly big enough for our equipment - we had to negotiate more space. But I can't remember getting up mid song. We've had some false starts over the years, in which the guitarist butchered the opening chords or riff, and shut the song down until he got it right. That was embarrassing.
