    A friend got me hooked on this guy a couple years ago. I thought some of you musicians might enjoy it, and some of the soundmen too. We've probably all run into a guy like this.

    SOUNDMAN
    Well excuse me please you're standing in my way
    I don’t care who you are and I don’t care what you say
    They call me the soundman & I’m having a real bad day

    Well hey you over there turn that damn thing down
    Ain’t u been told before you don’t need it that damn loud
    Hey I’m the soundman and I'll pull your plug right out

    Chorus
    Don’t you know don’t ya know I got control over you
    Don’t you know don’t ya know I’ll pull the plug on you

    Flick that switch turn that dial We'll set it on number 2
    Its sounds alright to me I don’t care what you normally do
    Cuz i’m the soundman & I know goddam more than you
    Cuz i’m the soundman & I know goddam more than you

    Don’t you know don’t ya know I got control over you
    Don’t you know don’t ya know I’ll pull the plug on you

    So do they play that before or after the fight with the sound man?

    Hard to believe they got three minutes.

    In my case, it's the musicians who pull their plugs out.
    Normally when the amps are still on and faders are up.
    Sometimes when I have the headphones on.

    Need a Tshirt that says
    "I have the ears,
    I use the gear."

    Emphasis on I.
