In 1980 I was working in a top 40s country band as a pedal steal player. My amp wasn't polarized with the sound system and I didn't realize it and it was time to introduce the band and that job fell on me. I reached for the mike and placed in near my lips and ZAP! A big blue spark flew from the mike to my lips and I yelled F**K! As loud as I could into the mike. Every head in the church turned toward me, we were playing a barbecue that The Lady of "What Ever it Was" in Descanco, CA throws every year. We played that evening and after having played that gig for over five years we were never asked back.
