This new Crazy Tour Stories segment was written by the rock band, Another Lost Year. You can check out the band’s wild story from the road, after the break.
“In Another Lost Year, we don’t believe in pulling pranks on each other, or on other bands, thats just wrong. Shenanigans, on the other hand, totally different story.
About 2 years ago, we were on our way to Jersey, David our lead guitar player is not easy to convince anything of. He had fallen asleep, we were crossing over the Delaware Bridge, in a state I cant remember….. Mexico, thats it, and we decided we were going to just try a simple slight of hands on him and our drummer at the time. We all set our phones ahead an hour, called my buddy we were staying with, who thinks we are slow because we are from the South anyways, tell him to set his clocks ahead as well. David wakes up to an almost dead cell phone, we changed to clock in the van as well, and ask him if his phone changed time. We created this whole elaborate reason why his phone hadn’t changed due to the battery, we get to my buddies house, David asks him why the time zone, he said it had something to do with Washington DC. He wasn’t sold just yet. We changed all the clocks after he goes to sleep, so that when he wakes up, his phone has since gone through a “time update”.
The whole next day he is walking around asking people about this “time zone”, I always would interject and say so and so needs to talk to you, and then after he would go find whoever, I would tell the people he had been talking to what was going on, so by the end of the night, everyone there is in on it.
We let this go on for a few more days, we had returned home, Adam and I were together and decided to call David and see if he had figured out the time zone deal, he informed us he had called his carrier and got into a screaming match with them that their towers had caused a time zone on his phone, we laughed, I asked him, did you ever stop to think we were just messing with you…. After a 20 second pause, he proclaimed his hate for us and hung up. It was several days before he would even talk to us again.”
