    My original guitar buddy got married and had kids and the bass player moved away, but I still jam with the other guy...(snipped)
    Cool Story. Just curious, would you care to share the name of the band you played for/with? Reason I'm asking was to try to identify the band you referenced as opening for KISS. I'm thinking it may have been "Our Lady Peace" (no opinion of them; heard the name, but not familiar with their works). And, just curious as to the band you played with as I didn't see any listed during the 2:00-3:00pm slot on Saturday.

    Anyways, hope you escaped Gretna and the West Bank without any harm and got the appropriate shots upon reentering civilization. I lived in Metairie (suburban New Orleans) for many years and did have to head over to the West Bank for work on occasion. Let's just say, there's a reason they used to only charge a toll to cross the Mississippi River Bridge when leaving the West Bank(pre-Katrina), rather than entering.

    We played on the Gattuso stage, which seems to be kind of a lagniappe part of the festival.
    I don't remember exactly what we were called, and I'd rather not give the girl's name.

    Looking into it, it was Our Lady Peace.
    I don't know them either, but I wasn't into it.

    My guitar buddy is a Katrina evacuee from that area, and despite a lot of family still down there, he refuses to move back.

    I don't understand why KISS was part of this festival.
    Someone must have owed somebody something somewhere for them to play such a small show.

    I believe it means subbing in for the chair/main musician; in this case, the normal percussionist. Not a common term in these parts, but I’ve heard it on or twice.

    Yeah I forget you guys call it "Subbing", the term used here in the UK is "Depping", shortened from deputising.

    Lingo is confusing. I remember some time back I was talking here about a kick or tom bracket/mount and used the term 'muff'. For some reason I didn't even think twice, just for some reason it was the first word that came to mind. I mean I honestly just thought that's what it's called.

    It's weird, because it's not actually a commonly used term here either. Normally, I'd actually stop to think "wait, what IS that called?" since if you think about it, people rarely refer to specific instrument parts such as them. I don't remember what all the small parts in a guitar bridge are called either.

    Anyway, back to the muff. Now that I think of it, it was probably my instructor who had just earlier called it that when we were discussing tom placements on different brands of kits so it stuck to my head. Turns out it's basically just a really odd slang word, according to my research probably originating from the German word "Muff" that actually does mean some sort of bushing or pipe connector although I'm not sure if the usage isn't antiquated.

    Wasn’t ‘muff’ used as a nickname for a female body part back in the day?
