I got a compliment yesterday on our band at a local festival, except it wasn't our band, it was the band after us! Awkward! I said thank you although I knew it wasn't us. Should I have corrected her?
Memories....but the other way around:
My band was on a radio program once...we played live in the studio & got interviewed by the host DJ afterwards.
Listeners called in.
One caller...who knew the other guitarist in the band....complemented him directly on "his great lead playing".
He thanked the caller and made some comment about how much he had been practicing.
(I played all the lead work)
I sat there dumbfounded...
