Re: Any positive band stories?
Perhaps on a slightly different tangent...
My band opened for Deep Purple a few years back and the guys in Purple were very nice to us, which to be honest I wasnt expecting. I was able to film Paice's kit during setup. The band wished us luck as we went onstage to open. Ian Gillen even suggested we "Just go out there and play as long as you want" - Which was of course impossible but it really helped our performance knowing that we were opening for a cool bunch of human beings who obviously remembered what its like to be a struggling band!
