                      You missed some mate.

                      Counting in the wrong tempo.

                      Counting in and playing the wrong number.

                      Loosing your way in a feel and coming in 1/2 a bar late.

                      Dropping your *** during a number and stopping to pick it up.

                      Trying to catch the bar maids eye while your playing to get another pint.

                      Wearing sunglasses cause the lights are to bright.

                      Running to the bar between numbers.

                      Having too many and falling off your throne.

                      Asking the club manager if he knows who in the audience has got some weed to sell.

                      Nailing wooden battens to the stage to stop your base drum moving.

                      Chatting up some dubious looking girl during the break and giving her your singers phone number instead of yours.

                      Conning some guy to stay on late to load your drums onto the van, on the pretence youll send him and his mates tickets for your next university gig.

                      Im not speaking from experience here. Huh
