Oh this will be SOOOOOO cool! I think I will stay out of the mosh pits this year. I was hurting for a few days after the last time.

Anyone else going? Of are you waiting for Pat Boone to come around?

I always found stature irrelevant

by Oz_Media In reply to hehehe...bouncing

Once you know how to move people around, it doesn't metter how big or small they are. IN fact it's always the one you think are no problem that are actually the problem.

If you can use someone's weight against them, and they weigh 300Lbs, they are gonna hurt themselves really bad. Someone lighter and wiry is much more intimidating to me than someone big and heavy.

I grew up with quite a few bikers around, I have seentiny little guys with grey beards kick the living snot out of 'really' big guys that just don't know how to deal with issues other than with their weight advantage.

No matter how big you are, you can still be knocked out cold quite easily with one well placed shot.

That is why I like the big guys

They are usually big, slow, and stupid. Many have never had to do more than look mean to get their way.

I on the other hand was small growing up, with an older BIGGER brother. After growing up to my daily beatings you learn a few things. If nothing else, how to take a **** and come back for more. or was that from brain damage and no longer being smart enought to know that something hurts? Same thing.

The more I go to the ozzfest site the more geeked I am getting! This will rock big time. This is the best lineup they have had in a long time.

I am actually going for a couple of the second stage bands, but Maiden, Sabbath of course will be MY draw, just not making any money with them though, unfortunately, I'd like a slice of that pie!

BLS needs to be on the main stage though, not headlining on a piece of plywood in the alley.

It stops a lot of the other takers after that.

That's what I always say about the US; Flex your muscles and you become the target. Brute force doesn't reduce the opposition, it increases it.

God don't I know that

by jck In reply to Take out the biggest guy ...

Being the big guy makes you the target...you don't even have to flex your muscles.

I can't tell you during my short stint as a bar bouncer how many little guys tried to beat me up to prove something. Pool cue over the back, guys pulling tire chains and crowbars out in the parking lot...never ended.

I was too nice to work in that arena. Eventually, I wanted to just pound the guy's head into the tailgate of his truck if he came after me in the parking lot.

I should have stuck with being a roadie. At least I got to meet hot women. ]:)

That 'backstage party with the women' stuff is supposed to be a secret these days.

hahahaha

by jck In reply to Take out the biggest guy ...

Backstage parties are talked about on MTV all the time. You just now have to mostly know "ebonics" to find out about them now.

No secrets about them since Pam and Connie and those girls started getting interviewed in the 70s about doing Hendrix, Morrison, The Almond Brothers Band, Aerosmith, etc.

Parties USED to be the mainstay of rock on the road. Nowdays most bands have too much work to do, the drugs are minimal and the booze, well the parties are quite a bit shorter anyway, hey are too busy gettig ushered to th enext town to pull off all nighters these days.

But a tried and tested band like JP that has been at it for 30+ years, has no problem having fun on the road these days, it's a matter that they coul dget on stage half ead and unrehearsed and still pull it off while blowing everyone's mind.

For other bands there is far too much competition and demand on tours for them to really party much. Min dyou what they consider a party now, doesn't include the Plaster Casters and 3-day orgies on acid.

And when they do show to "party"

by jdclyde In reply to Take out the biggest guy ...

it is just that. To be seen. See me at the hot club dancing with hot babes. You wish you were me so you will buy my records while not knowing I am actually gay and that is why so many girls dance with me because they know we are just buds and don't expect anything!

Not the backstage, everyone take your cloths off and everyone just start doing everyone. Bags of pot and coke there for the taking. Oh yeah, lots of dots getting dropped making mama thursty!


Baby's getting anxious, the hour's getting late
The night is almost over, she can't wait
Oh, things are complicating, my love is in her hands
And there's no more waiting, she understands

The plaster's gettin' harder and my love is perfection
A token of my love for her collection, her collection

Plaster caster, grab a hold of me faster
And if you wanna see my love, just ask her
And my love is the plaster
And yeah, she's the collector
She wants me all the time to inject her

The plaster's gettin' harder and my love is perfection
A token of my love for her collection

Plaster caster, plaster caster
Grab a hold of me faster, plaster, faster
And if you wanna see my love, just ask her, ask her
Go on, ask her

The plaster's gettin' harder and my love is perfection
A token of my love for her collection, her collection

Plaster caster, plaster caster
Grab a hold of me faster, plaster, faster
If you wanna see my love, just ask her, ask her

Plaster caster, plaster caster
She wants my love to last her, last her, last her
And she calls me by the name of master, master

Plaster caster, plaster caster
Grab a hold of me faster, plaster, faster
If you wanna see my love, just ask her, ask her

Plaster caster, plaster caster
Grab a hold of me faster, (plaster, faster)
And if you wanna see my love, just ask her,(ask her)
Plaster caster, plaster caster

that's all true

by jck In reply to I always found stature ir ...

but when you're a 350-400 lb weightlifter whose father was an amateur boxer and you had tae-kwon-do for a year and 3 years of karate, you know how to deal with your weight and balance :)

That's why the 300 lb linemen were so easy to move...and why my friends in the band had me as their only security guard. :)
