The band and crew for Clutch couldn't have been a nicer bunch. Looks like they still are!

We've worked with them a bunch over the years, and have a show with them in a couple weeks, IIRC.  I'll say hello for you!

Agreed that they're a good bunch to work with.  Some folks are "a pleasure to say goodbye to"; Clutch is a pleasure to say "welcome back" to. :D

Clutch is one of my favorites. I haven’t had the pleasure of working with them, ran across Electric Worry one day while surfing YT, then started checking others songs out.

Whisper to it. Engage with it.

Was just listening to Ghoul Wrangler on the ride home.

So what exactly happens…or doesn’t that results in positive vibes?

Good demeanor when you first walk up and shake hands and introduce yourself.
Stage plot is what you were sent.
Everyone (your crew and theirs) in a good mood, ready to get the job done.
Reasonable requests for the monitors, understanding when you explain what is, or isn't possible.
When I say "Hey guys, take a 10 minute break while I wire the stage", they do.

That's the start of a very good day at my office.....
Chris.

Very cool clip!  That Les Paul looks like a 6 string bass on the kiddo.

For me personally it was a day where we were doing a crappy club gig. Sevendust was the headliner and Clutch was opening. Sevendust was being all manner of primadonna egotistical a-holes. Clutch and crew walked in, saw what was happening, saw that the late load-in and soundcheck was not our fault but was because the headliner was being pissy. They just hung out with us and BS'd and had fun while their soundcheck time slipped away. No ego, no anger, no posturing. Just dudes in a bad situation making the best of it. The TM broke out his polaroid and laminator and made all of us local guys Clutch laminates while we were waiting! I still have that lammie in my closet......
