I'm curious to hear stories on how you dealt with yourself, or a band member, getting too sick to perform for gig night. I'm sure it happens to everyone at one time or another. Do you have backups, cancel the show, or other?
Sunday night I got food poisoning that lasted 24hrs. Fortunately, the only gig I had that night and the next day was a beeline to the bathroom. That was F-chord miserable. No way to perform under those conditions but I have performed (not a guitar gig) having Pneumonia before. So, this got me thinking on what options to have.
