    I love how some people put this VERY odd stat on their web pages. It is
    the "I shared the stage with" category. What the fuck does that mean? I
    was on the same stage as Ronald Reagan once. What does that mean? Think
    about all the stage hands etc. who could say they "shared the stage"
    with Mick Jagger etc. I think this is a really interesting
    accomplishment for people to brag about. Who here has the most
    impressive "I shared the stage with" person? :) I can see it now, some
    junkie musician who used to sell smack to the rock acts is now listing
    them on his web page as "I shared the stage with XXXXXX." What is left
    out is, "I was on stage delivering his smack to him." :)

  2. I think it means a visit to B B King's Wig Museum is long overdue.

    See Matt Monroe's potato peeler collection.

    Try on the wigs that have "shared the stage" with thier owners: Pual
    Mcratney, David Bowie, Ginger Baker, Little Walter, Tiny Tim, Larry
    Adler (he speaks to me from beyond the grave in Klingon every night,
    you know),Ludwig van Beethoven.

    Snuggle up to the HOT WATER BOTTLE exhibit.

    Marvel at the collection of drummers' pieces of carpet.

    B B KING'S WIG MUSEUM is in FINCHLEY, TEXAS.

    People do it when they lack other accomplishments. There's a local
    guitarist who jumped up on stage at the end of a jam session just to
    say he had "shared the stage with [whomever]"...And the guy is
    so "good" that he was voted Outstanding New Artist in a local paper TWO
    YEARS IN A ROW! *snicker*

    True, but just about everyone exaggerates accomplishments on their
    resume', don't they? They do this because most people who read this stuff
    will assume that at the VERY least, these people opened for the artists with
    whom they claim to have shared the stage. Sometimes the assumption is that
    these people actually PLAYED with the artists in these claims. In either
    case, it inflates the perceived success level of the one making the claim.
    I think the criteria for the "I shared the stage" claim should be that
    you were BOOKED for a gig either as a sideman for an artist, or at the very
    least, as an opening band for said artist.
