SO FRIDAY CAME A LNG AN HAT WAS THE DAY OF THE GIG AND WELL MY OTHER FRIEND WHO IS A SEMI-DRUMMER/ VOCALIST, DECIDED TO BRING HIS DRUMS SINCE HE LIVED DOWN THE STREET FROMWHEE WE WERE PLAYING, AND WE BEGAN TO UNLOAD AND SET UP OUR DRUMS AND STUFF, YU COULD HEAR GUITARS BEING TUNED AND THE HARDCORE PUNK KIDS IN THE BACKGROUND CHTTINGAMONGST THEMSELVES. THIS HOUSE WAS AREALLY NICE NEW RICH HOUSE THAT WAS BEATEN UP AND HAD HOLES IN THE WALSS AND I WAS LIKE WOW.

Holy crap. Though, from what my friend from Chula Vista tells me, I'm not overly surprised.

Good Lord :shock: , if I witnessed that I would have devoured his soul just for the fact that he did this to any Paiste; probably killed him 5 times before he hit the ground had they been my cymbals.
I respect you for your patience and sanity during this event

yes I was like NOOOOOO!!!! in a dramatic slow motion as they toppled over! But I'm over that now. My Paiste's sure have battle scars now but, I respect that and coll with it. But it's like scars because the fact is it will never go away. The fact that they fell down will never escape!
