My story re Terry comes from an outdoor concert in Cairns during a massive tropical rainstorm, many bands would not have even performed in the conditions, the guitarists near the front of stage finished up without shirts as they were drenched, anyway a little over half way through the concert there was concern re the weight of water accumulating on the roof, and the decision was made for the roofing contractor to send guys up top to attempt to release some water, which they did unfortunately through the join in the skin not over the edges, and the end result was numerous gallons falling over Terry and his kit I will never forget the look on his face but to my and many other peoples amazement he did not miss a beat playing on throughout to complete not only the number but the rest of the show.
Whatever Terry is doing I wish him well
The mark of a true pro, lol. I don't know him but I would have loved to see that. I saw a giant, plastic light fixture fall on terry bozzio's head during a clinic once, he kept going as the thing slid down his rack and off behind him never missing a beat.

I can't imagine having a waterfall coming down on you unexpectadly though... too funny.
