Mayhem 2012 Tour with Slipknot Headlining! Woot Woot!! Slipknot runs a very tight ship, from the clothes you were as what is expected from you. Nothing but true professionals!!
And 'wear' was your favorite venue?
The Dreadnoughts - Summer Tour 2011 - they were the drunkest band ever, for real:)
Nice! I got to meet Alice at Harrahs Rincon Open Air Theater in Valley Center, CA a few years back. My buddy Brian Sateia was teching for Keri Kelli, we got to go back to get a photo with him after the show. What a nice guy!
Wow Great Question I have been lucky enough to work on all kinds of tours like Justin Beibers tour etc mostly in the creation of Magic EFX but my best ( and Worst ) tour would have to be David Copperfields mainly because I got a managing position when I was fairly young as Illusion manager but I was also the pyro/special Efx guy. animal wrangler, onstage assistant , truck loader and consultant so I worked 16 hours a day most days. I did this for about 6 or 7 years and loved the creative part and although it took me a couple years to learn how to be a camelion and jump from working with Union guys to throwing on a suit and meeting the bussiness guys then back to jeans and speed wrinches for load outs and from starting off the toughest Ahole I could be then getting nicer and nicer as the day progressed ( anyone that deals with truck loading and marking your teritory will know what I mean by this.)
But I met Presidents and Kings and people like Michael Jackson knew my name and said Hi when they came in,
We were always working on the next TV special and invited to amazing parties and events. It was a lot of world travel and one of the best learning experiences of my life. It helped to make me the man I am today for good or bad.
Thanks Michael. I agree, the life experience you get from traveling all over the world, experiencing all the different cultures etc., is most rewarding of all!
Mine would have been working for Poison 2001-2003 as the stage manager/carp. I worked my ass off, but well worth it! The after show party's were the best. What a great group of guys to work for!
So many good times that I can't even recall them all! And the women OMG they would do anything and I mean anything to get backstage. But hell I was single at the time and took advantage of it all!
Mark Hogue my mentor actually told me to slow down, as I took it to the extreme when it came time for running after trim. LOL Great times!! Love my extended family!
Wait, I think there is a Poison crew photo on here somewhere, I will try to find and post above.
I love the fact that you had to be told to tone down the running of "trim". Awesome!
Hey what can I say? I guess I took up the back lounge to much on the crew bus but hey, I am a man and have needs!! LOL
Sounds like that hasn't changed much since the early 90's
I miss those days.
Every Rollings Stones tour I have ever done was the BOMB. Hell, I would have worked just for the food. They have the best catering EVER. The band is friendly and fun, I got to see all of Europe and got paid well. I was hired just to massage Charlie Watts, but always ended up massaging everyone.
