Something that happened at last night's show, although not exactly the same, triggered this "Grampa memory".
At a club show with a well known singer songwriter, he came back to the console between sets, not to complain but just to "shoot the shit" and catch up on adventures since our last encounter.
A woman who wanted to talk to him came up and seeing me asked, "Are you running the sound? I'm having a really hard time understanding the words".
The artist immediately spoke up, "Mayaum, would it help you understand the sittchyation if I were to remind you that ahm from Texas and ahm DRUNK!".
Proving once again that it's not AlWAYS the system OR the operator.
