I ask this question of bands all the time, and it seems fitting since you talked about how the crew and band didn't want to hear the band played on off days, what kind of music did the bands listen to when they weren't on stage? There's a story where you played the same song 10 times on the jukebox... How many times have you seen "This is Spinal Tap" on the bus?
