I Hate Me, Part 299,734

It was the last show of a short Monster Magnet tour. We were playing a festival in East Germany and headlining the secondary stage/tent. It was a good show and after it was over there were some people at the barricade by the foot of the stage looking for set lists, drum sticks, or guitar picks (or as the Euro’s say “plectrums”). I had a set list and I gave it away.  As I was doing this, our guitar tech stage left, Towers (aka: Towers of Power, Towering Inferno, Inferno) handed me a stack of papers that seemed like a bunch of set lists. Great. Here I am “Hero of the Day” I’m handing out set lists, everyone gets one, everyone’s happy. Until I realized that in the stack of “set lists” only the first two were actual set lists, the rest were blank. So I was ceremoniously handing out blank sheets of paper. And then I started to have crumpled up paper thrown back at me. There were raised German voices, I was no longer the hero. I mimed something that indicated that I would be right back.  I didn’t come back.

    Couldn’t you have tried to convince them that you were presenting them with some sort of crappy traditional wedding anniversary gift? Like you’d been married to each of them for 4 years or something?

    Oh fuck it, I hate me too.

    As long as I’ll get my setlist in Hamburg in December I’ll be fine 😉

  1. LOOOOOL!!!
    I’m sorry Tim, I’m as surprised as you were, only I just realised it now while reading your post. 😛
    Honestly, I really thought it’d be a bunch of setlists and since it was the last show of the tour we wouldn’t need it anymore… Please don’t hate yourself, HATE ME!!!
