Default Even the pros have one gear mishaps

Randomly stumbled onto this clip earlier today. Mark Guiliana and his band on stage in Japan recently having no end of gear mishaps/issues.

Drum and keyboard problems all over the place. See 1m44, 3m13 & 4m16

https://youtu.be/eEduiAbXEmA

Good to see the band react to the issues with good humour and grace though.

Occupational hazards are inevitable (ask Mariah Carey!) but it's how we handle them that keeps them from being complete train wrecks (ask Mariah Carey!)

A couple years back, I saw Pat Mastelotto furiously wrenching the lugs on his snare's beater head while holding down a nasty 7 time vamp during a Stick Men performance. Pretty impressive! I asked him about it later and he said the snare had "lost its tone" in the middle of the song. He discovered the torn reso head later.

"Mark Guiliana and his band on stage in Japan recently having no end of gear mishaps/issues. " How can you tell what is a mishap-all seems pretty normal to the music to me ;)

I'm not quite sure what I was listening to there. Sounded like all the amps in the joint were on the fritz as well.

Wow, that was hilarious! :) Rule No 11: never attempt to change a ride cymbal during the song; Rule No 12: make sure expensive keyboard does not fly off when played!

Sorry for laughing, the band carried on brilliantly, music gets interesting after that splash falls off at 1m44...

Yep it happens to even the biggest names in the biz. Keeping his humor and coming back strong worked well for Alex... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC_ASJHX5r8

This isn't his jazz quartet??? So I gather he is exploring different avenues now. Man that snare and kit sounded rough like a Hello Kitty drum kit. What happened did his real kit get held because he didn't have the papers for his Bubinga kit-lol.

Exactly, everyone's human regardless of their standing. We all make mistakes/have gear fail on us.

I personally chuckled as there's three within minutes and not limited to one band member.

Lady luck was having a chuckle also in those minutes I think ; )

This is the stuff I used to put on my car stereo to stay awake when it was 3AM and driving home from a gig. That 'uneasy' (being polite) feeling is often exactly what the artists are trying to convey.

Just want to put it out there...

I've seen a lot of musicians out on the road who have tantrums that are completely out of their normal character. All that travel and new places, the same idiots in your space all day/night, and unique issues of each town and venue can wear down even the most patient people.

Not excusing Mike, just mentioning something I've seen.

Rush concert on their roll the bones tour, Alex broke a string. He waved over to the side of the stage to get his guitar techs attention. The guy didnt notice, Alex kept furiously waving over while playing, finally walked over and thew the guitar over the guys head as he was trading off with another one. he was pissed!

Man, Ive seen that guy play some of my favorite stuff and Ive seen him play some of my least favorite. I guess he covers the whole spectrum of what he sees as possible. He is an amazing drummer, pushes the boundaries. I feel like I can never tell what is a gear mishap and what is him experimenting.

I saw Metallica on their Justice for All tour. During the title song, they had a giant statue of Justice, (I'd guess about 30' tall) like on the record cover, and it intensionally collapsed during the song. Except in Toronto, it didn't collapse correctly and the head came down and took out 1/2 of Lars drum kit mid song. To his and everyone's credit, they all played right through while a swarm of roadies tried to put everything back together, and barely missed a note. And it was huge.

Ahhhh...that great Gretsch sound!

I've never seen a drummer impersonate a typist before.

Broken strings no problem to BB King, just replace the string mid song while still giving a stellar performance.
