Dancing Duck

Title Graphic

A cracked piano lid is NOT an easy fix!

Smashing a guitar.on stage is always a crowd pleaser....
So is Dancing on a piano....

The difference between the two is:
A "Throw-Away" guitar costs about a hundred bucks and
a concert grand sells for about $100,000.00.

However, the biggest difference, between the two "Cheap Tricks "
is: the performer" Eats" the guitar loss but "Skips-Out"
on piano rental damages.

So, before you applaud vandalism on stage, consider the "Schmuck"
who's stuck with the repair bill. Clap a little less, and maybe
ticket prices will be a little less.
