Extra Shock

7 electric lady.jpeg

As Electric Lady got her hands ready to give Jimi something extra, a stagehand came around the corner holding a giant cooler of frosty Frogweiser beers. They were nice and cold because the cooler had that perfect mix of ice cold water and half melted ice cubes. It was then that the klutzy stagehand tripped like a doofus over a guitar cable on the ground. The water went everywhere

around Jimi and Electric Lady's feet. The electricity 

seemed to jump from Electric Lady's hands and into Jimi's body instantly. Jimi collapsed onto the floor and started shaking. It was bad... bad indeed frogz. He eventually recovered and was able to stand after a few minutes, but he had heavy double vision, vertigo, and when he tried to walk he kept falling over. Electric Lady said to Jimi "I'm so sorry Jimi, there's no way you can play the show like this. I meant well and wanted you to be at the top of your game for this show, so I gave you something extra." Jimi accepted Electric Lady's apology, but was sad to agree that there was zero way he could play his set like this. Jimi's performance at Frogerey was cancelled and "The Who" had to play extra to make up for Jimi's absence. Jimi still went on to have a great career in music, but always wondered what would have been if he played Frogerey and lit his guitar on fire like he had planned.
