Big difference between a couple of ales and rolling around on the floor shitfaced unable to find your kit. I'll never understand how the difference between sensible moderation and unnecessary excess gets completely lost every time this topic comes up.
Amen Pocket. I was waiting for a sensible person to chime in here. Apparently most of the people here live in a world of staunch dichotimies with it comes the the bacchanalian activities.
...Sorry, I wanted to use big words too. You English have a colorful way of speaking.
I figure I'm not impeded by 2 beers before a gig, I do like my sauce and there really isn't a noticible impact on my motor skills. I draw the line at 2 before playing though as I tend to drag when I start feeling it. Played a copule of gigs actually drunk, had the opportunity to watch the tape of one. We were on and the crown was loving us, I even remember a random stranger bought me a beer and brought it up to the stage for me. My timing on the other hand was all over the place. Fun night but not something I'd try again.
