Okay, I don't watch a lot of TV, so maybe this has been out for months/years and I'm only now seeing it (on a commercial, I forget for what), but I got a chuckle out of this this morning.

Q: How many blues singers does it take to change a light bulb?

A: It doesn't matter. Now that the original bulb is gone, nothing matters.




Maybe you had to be there.

My favorite version of this joke -

How many Kennedy's does it take to change a light bulb?

12 - one to hold the bulb, and 11 to drink till the room starts spinning!

Would that be an electric lightbulb, an accoustic lightbulb or one o' them fancy resonator lightbulbs?

you get a lot of folks that think that is true...

but the reality is, music is an art..not to be judged, rated or ranked..
but to be enjoyed..

This is always easier to do if someone changes the lightbulb.

How many bluegrass musicians does it take to change a light bulb?



Ten. One to change it, and the other nine complain that it's electric.
And not a Martin!

How many deadheads does it take to change a light bulb?

40,000.
One to change the lightbulb,
499 to tape the event,
15,000 to dance and twirl in ecstasy,
5000 to sit and grumble that "they used to change 'em better in the old days",
5,000 to wander around outside with (mix and match) one finger in the air, calling out "doses", "da kine", "veggie burritos", "groovy dyes", "guats", "spare change", "gas/motel/food money", "I need a miracle"
4000 to wander around outside dancing at the cars with the tunes blasting from the tape decks, lining up at the balloon trucks,
100 scalpers selling fake bulbs,
400 state/local/federal officers looking for all the above...
oh, yeah, and 10,000 to follow the old burned out one to the next town.

Knowing anything I post is going to be down the list after the dead head one here it goes:

Only one...the rest of them didn't wake up this morning.

Q: how many sound men does it take to change a light bulb?

A: one. upon finding no replacement, he takes the original apart, repairs it with a chewing gum wrapper and duct tape, changes the screw mount to bayonet mount, finds an appropriate patch cable, and re-installs the bulb fifty feet from where it should have been, to the satisfaction of the rest of the band.

Maybe you had to be there.



That's a ComEd ad - there are a few others, one has Cheap Trick in it.....

They're promoting the new CFL bulbs.....

How many Allman Brothers does it take to change a light bulb?

Well, all of them and the roadies and Bert too.......

Bert would announce five days after it was out that it was out.

A roadie would take a print out of Berts announcement to Gregg, read it, and then point to the light bulb.

Derek would ask Susan if he should be involved with this.

Warren would enlist 10 other bands for guest assistance in this matter.

Bert would make another announcement that includes conflicting dates of the bulb change out.

The change out would then be delayed due to scheduling issues for Warren.

Susan gets back to Derek. The answer is confidential.

JJ sits back and laughs.

Butch finally hears about this crisis while in France. Quickly writes a disertation on the tie in to global warming.

Gregg asks Bert for clarification.

Butch and RT get into a heated Guest Book discussion on left hand versus right hand turning methodology.

54 Forum threads result on this, from everything regarding the religious implications to the gays being at fault for dead lightbulbs. The worst is the use of new versus classic bulb styles.

Hemlock posts the history of the Marines inventing light bulbs on the guest Book.

Bird72 brings up the tie in to classic Pontiacs using bulbs before any other car had them.

Lefty brings up that damn left-handed bulb thing again.

Everyone tells Lefty to shut up.

Gregg consults a holistic healer on the potential of healing the dead bulb.

Butch pours over history books on light bulbs looking for historical precedence.

Otiel writes a pretty cool funky instrumental called "The Bulb".

When nobody is looking, Derek flips off the dead bulb, with a slide on his finger for added emphasis. He says nothing, of course.

Gregg faxes Dickey about this matter, telling him to stay out of it.

Gregg has someone order a flashlight for him.

Bert announces the bulb change out will occur during Beacon run 08, dates to be announced in late February.

20 people are enlisted by the band to find an exciting new cover song to highlight this trying crisis.

A very tiny article appears in Rolling stone back by the classifieds noting this crisis.

The fans await resolution.......

to be continued................
