DOTR - Jem's stage position
« on: October 11, 2010, 11:27:57 AM »
I couldn't help noticing that your position on stage left wasn't as well serviced by the lighting crew as Mitchell, Pete T and Blunders.

Was this planned, or is it the lot of the keyboard player to end up in the dark part of the stage. (When I was in a band, they always shoved me off into the dark corner, but I always assumed that was because they hoped I wouldn't be seen! LOL)

Still a magnificent, bonkers, wonderful night

Talking to Blunders beforehand the drums stage left, keys stage right is something that will be a feature of mark 3 live. It allows them all more chance to get in of the japery ;)

I think Jem was happier not to have a thundering great lamp melting the top of his keyboard (as was the case 2 years ago)! :)

The lighting guys always like to point the lights at the guys that can move around. That's very hard for keyboard players.
And yeah, it's kinda nice to not have a 1000watt burning your skin the entire evening.
