    When guys in the band were telling a band director, "You're going to have a heart attack", and hearing the response, "I don't get heart attacks, I give 'em" - LOL

    When I was a kid, I went to a bigband workshop in Sydney. Dick Montz, who was THE lead player at the time,said to a guy in the trumpet section who could not play
    " Son, sell your trumpet and buy a camera. You'll have more fun."
    I thought it a little harsh at the time, but you never know, the guy might be a great photographer by now.

    Ok, my high school band director said this one morning to the low brass during marching band practice:
    "Get off your kness and stop blowing the releases!!!"
