A few years ago, I was in a shop on my way to a gig and I found these awesome lollipops that I hadn’t seen for donkey’s years. Having flashbacks to my childhood, I had to buy one. In the end, I never ate it and it remains in my DJ bag to this day. I have convinced myself that it is “for emergencies”.
Now, I’m not sure which emergencies might require a musical toot sweet but nonetheless, it shall remain zipped up safe just in case. It has taken the form of a little mascot that makes me smile every time I am packing my gig bag.
So we were talking about this in the office, and it got us to thinking: Which is the most unusual item you keep (or have kept) in your DJ bag? Do you keep it as a mascot or are you just too lazy to take it out? How did it get there?
So, over to you: Do you have anything “for emergencies only”? Any other such stories? Let us know in the comments below…
