I usually have my bass quite low and there’s one song where I [play] high on the fretboard, so the bass has to be higher up. What I usually do is put my leg on the drum riser and put the bass on my leg. But I had these new trousers on, and it was the first time I’d worn them onstage and as soon as I put my leg up, I realized the trousers were too small and I put a huge f***ing tear right across the arse. That was in front of about 1,400 people.
