We have a show next week and the forecast portends of high heat and humidity in a club that is warm to begin with. If we wear shorts on stage do we lose our rock-and-roll cred?

There was no 'YES' option so I voted with pics.

Wear whatever you want. If they only care about your appearance and aren't listening to your music, they aren't worth having as a fan anyways. My 2 cents. Good luck at your gig!

1] How do you look naked ? (I don't care, just be honest with your self...)
2] Who cares? Just rock a speedo, plus chaps if your legs are nasty....

:eek:

You could be onstage in the middle of winter in Phoenix and still sweat your a$$ off. Around here, wear as little as possible unless you're looking for heatstroke.

Well, being is I have some serious chicken legs I could never consider it, but Angus & Dimebag aren't the only ones to rock the short pants thing. (*To varying degrees of success)



Augie who?



Bob whattup with the Daisy Dukes man?



OK I can't rip the late Jerry too much, he was already an old fart at this point

Even the late great BB did.

I agree.....I always wear cargo shorts. Plus who say there's rules to what we do anyway? If there are rules I don't feel bad breaking them.

Yes. I agree. That is the sum of it, no rules. It is all about the Rock n Roll. Rock on Ted Nugent! There is a pic of him in shorts and no shirt somewhere. Cant find it at the moment.

You're the one up there in the heat doing a job, might as well do it as comfortably as you can...

although to be truly rock and roll, you'll need to kilt it up!!
