Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Played the scene in Sydney from the late 70's to late 80's, Packed it in for quite a while and have returned in 2010. Playing shows here and there for enjoyment now, not for the money
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
Biggest crowd was 30,000 people (so the promoter told us) at an Australia Day concert in Parramatta in the early 80's The smallest was some gig in Griffith. Had more roadcrew than punters. Most memorable was the Highway Hotel in Wentworthville when the pyrotechnics we were using went off with a huge bang. The force of the explosion ripped every speaker on stage and sent a couple of people off to hospital with perforated eardrums.
