Any particular story we should know?

Shame we missed this guy (activation thread worst thing on this forum, scare away many newbies who wonder why their thread are never answered).

I worked for FZ as the LD on the Europe '82 tour. I'm now in the TV biz and any working on a project idea. Is anyone else out there?

What a ripoff, I've always wondered why there were not roadies stories here and would love to hear some. Maybe they're on some kind of "non-disclosure" agreement and if they talk they spontaneously combust.

...the stories below indicate that roadie work is demanding but necessary; few roadies, at least with zappa, find the stamina to maintain the hectic pace for more than a year or two ... they eventually succumb to physical or head hassles or both ...

Now we know the famous "Coy, who likes to leave the green gels in the truss, so the black guys in the ban can look like they have scales all over their bodies".
