reply #2 ..... I've got hundreds of recordings where within 5 minutes of the performance ending I bolt straight to the bathroom to relieve myself all suited up in the human mic stand costume and now captured for posterity for anyone whoever gets a hold of my unedited master files. What are you gonna do? When nature calls.

Me too.  That's always edited out.  Go full camel mode until show is done.

No drinking, don't want to have to pee
Although I do usually have a buddy bring me a double whiskey with about 30 minutes left in the show.

That's  how it's done. 👍

Ah, the memories.  :lol: I was at this show.

if you're gonna hat it, jackass, don't drink. worst thing ever. I'd absolutely flatten someone on the spot for pissing themselves at a show, or pissing on the floor.

I remember hearing and laughing about a tape where the *wink* Taper went and used the bathroom during the show...  but too many beers have erased anything more than a brief "I think"...

Good times...

I’m my twenties I had to hit the can twice during shows (1 Robert Plant and 1 Ahmad Jamal) and once pissed in an empty beer cup at my seat in a large theatre type show and nobody seemingly noticed.  After s couple hundred I don’t stealth much anymore

I do recall the story about a taper making an utter fool of himself at a Black Crowes show on pills and alcohol.  No names to protect the guilty, but I think a few others have heard the story.

Going back to the drinking part of this.  I can't count the number of times friends want to meet at a bar beforehand for food and drinks and do not understand  >:D tapers have a job to do.  For the Nick Mason show in LA I had 3 separate offers.  After seeing the show the night before, waking up driving 6 hours the absolute last thing I would do is  want to drink before a show.

If it's a hot day, you gotta have some water, and you'll sweat it out before you gotta pee if you sip slowly (one sip per song.)


No snacks with crinkly wrappers! No crunchy snacks to chew with mics on your head!


I have one recording I made where I'm like WTF is that crunching sound? Later, I remembered it was the song where I had a snack, like a almond bar or something. d'oh!


Alcohol before a show is a terrible idea, but I love FOBSTL's cocktail plan. Best idea yet.

I'm at the place to enjoy myself. That involves at least a couple of drinks and some smoke. I know not to overindulge because the Tiny Town sheriff is always on the prowl at 1 am and needs very little reason to pull you over. My insurance rates do not need a DUI

Taping is serious shit with me.  I never get stoned, I never drink alcohol.  I barely sip water.  I never leave my seat.  There is time enough for getting high after the show. 

I have had issues carrying around the gear at the snack stand, in bathrooms, or just walking around.  Some venues have roving security folks on the lookout for gear or suspicious activity, so it is just best to stay sober, stay dry and stay in your seat.

So unlimited PCP, heroin and bath salts?    :bigsmile:

No drinking during the show but after a stressful  >:D show I have been know to drink some folks under the table if I am at a hotel.   I still recall the Clapton Vegas show with my security run in.  I was amped up after that one and after the show we sat down in a hotel bar. My friends left me after I downed 3 doubles in succession.  I stayed for a few more rounds before I could sleep.

Are you trying to say stealthing might turn me gay? :P

Seriously though...if I'm wearing the mics liquid stops going into me a few hours before doors and a pee as much as possible to avoid having an issue. I love beer so it's hard not to partake, but I've had some emergencies in the past and they aren't pleasant.

Recently I've given up the ideal spot for some shows (mainly bands that don't put on that great of shows) and run the rig off my body (usually the front row of the balcony. Just did that last weekend and it was nice to be able to get up grab a beer and take a wiz whenever I wanted (was with friends so they could watch the rig.

Anyone else remember the tapers with shirts printed with "Death before dishonor, drugs before lunch"?
