I've always wanted to play with the pit band in a Broadway show.

I got struck by lightning when I was a teenager, so I can't say I'd want to play in the middle of the street during a thunderstorm.

Paradiso, Amsterdam: what an amazing room. I saw Fishbone there once. Awesome. It is a large old church with stained glass windows illuminated at night so during a gig, it looks beautiful. An "A" list of artists have played there. The room has a fantastic sound.

In the Coliseum in Rome before a live audience. That would just take all else away. A close second would be any stadium with an audience of more than 150,000 people. I think the adrenaline would be crazily intense!

I used to play during storms in the garage at my old house. No neighbors, so I could pull it off in the middle of the night. Played outside the garage in the rain once, it was neat until the hail started. I thought about leaving a few cymbals out for a natural rehammer...

I still practice in the garage here whenever there's pouring rain during the day...but it was much better at night. I recommend it.

Wembley Stadium in London, England.

Not only would there be a huge audience but, several very famous bands have played there! (AC/DC, Queen, Metallica, and several others...)

This sounds odd but I'm not in a band and there's a pub near me called The Globe and they have quite a cool upstairs stage area for gigs etc, it only hold a 150ish people though. For a few years I've been watching local bands and touring bands play there and I really want to as well. It's like it's my woodstock or something. It's like the Tenacious D movie where the local battle of the bands is the end all and be all for them lol

I can scratch one venue off my list. The Whisky a go go in Hollywood.

Now its a toss between The House of blues or Carnegie Hall.

The pit drummer at the Academy Awards would be a blast.

We once did a wedding gig outdoor in a huge marquee. we had the big rig, everything was mic'd up perfectly. it was the best sound i'd heard from us live. The bass cut through really well, i loved it. I never get to play in those situations much, so it was a breath of fresh air to be honest. Im used to the snare drum coming back from the walls and slapping me in the face haha.
