Found this story link in a Sweetwater newsletter.

More Fog!

Eric Askew – SweetCare Content Specialist

I had a gig on Halloween that was about two hours away and that featured my band as the main act. It was a bar with an approximate capacity of 100–150 people that had a relatively big light setup, including a fog machine located somewhere on the lighting truss behind my drum kit. The first song went off without a hitch. The band was getting into it, and the crowd was loving us!

And then, disaster struck. About a quarter of the way through the second song, I heard a loud hiss. My bassist heard me starting to mess up, turned around, and noticed I was missing. All he saw were my long arms rising above the fog, trying to hit my drums.

The fog machine broke and wouldn’t stop emitting fog. It got so bad that we couldn’t see the power cord to unplug it, and there was no way I’d stand on my drum throne to find the power button. The only thing we could do at that point was to wait until it ran out of juice.

Everyone was told to evacuate until the room could clear out. It took about 15–20 minutes before we could start playing again. Not many people came back, so when we restarted there were about 20 people left. Luckily, the bar owner was gracious enough to let us play our entire set and not cut it short. Fog machines still haunt me to this day.

This story hit home. A similar incident happen to me on stage in the 1990s. I was designated the fog master general responsible for turning the fog machine on and off. The on/off switch stuck in the on position. Chaos ensued until the machine was unplugged and the club cleared out. Happily, I was relieved of fog machine command.
