Smile Jamming with Foos at a concert?

How does one get picked to jam a song on stage with the band?

After the "kid that wouldn't leave the stage" incident I don't think they'll be doing that any more.

I hope they stop. I would much rather have another song or two (and hear Shifty sing). People expect it now.

It was at the Nashville show last month. Lil Fonzie. The kid was decent, but overstayed his welcome. Dave compared it to the Price is Right that week.

I was at that show and it was awful....I was right in front of Shifty when he asked the father to wind things up and the father just ignored him...I could lip read what Shifty said after that and it wasn't "this is fun"

As much as I would want to do this, I understand that it probably isn't the best thing to do. I guess people just want to have their 15 minutes of fame.

Green Day used to do this all the time - pick someone from the crowd and get them to play guitar. I found it tiresome.

I am all for bands doing something spontenaeus but if they keep repeating the same thing then it is predictable.
