It depends on how much gear I bring, and what kind of gig. If I'm bringing my full complement of pedal boards, I'll stand because its easier to trigger things, dance the boogaloo, and strike rock star poses. if its a sonic wallpaper kind of gig, wedding or restaurant thing, without much gear, I'll sit, and try to blend in with the normal people. As I recall Larry did sit and use a footstool, which may have gotten in the way of his edp foot pedal. poor guy, I kinda...sniff...miss him...sniff...a little bit..actually late at night after Y2K4 ended, when it was discovered that Larry did indeed leave his two EDPs behind, there was some discussion as to whether or not we should tell him, reasoning that perhaps the kind thing to do was not say anything. I can't help thinking that this whole outburst from the Larry had some kind of weird PT Barnum inspired promotional angle. I gues we'll never know. unless of course you are still out there somwhere lurking Larry.
