Pit Stories: Drinking Stories and Pit Stories Sometimes Go Hand In Hand

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week John Conley, lead guitarist of New York doom metal band Moth Eater, shares a couple that demonstrate how drinking stories and pit stories sometimes go hand in hand:
The ONLY thing I've ever won in life... free tickets to see Godsmack play a lunch time set for K-Rock radio at CBGB's. It was around the time of their 1st record. It was supposed to be a big deal or something. Stuttering John was the emcee... or something... I ended up going to the show with my buddy the Drunken Monkey. The band didn't start playing 'til after 1 but we were drinking as soon as they started serving. By the time they started playing there were all sorts of jackholes jumping around. I'm a bit fuzzy but I remember wearing my Skinless hoodie and throwing windmills between drinks. Good times with the Drunken Monkey for sure... and yes, Godsmack sucked.
Here's another one for a more positive experience:
I was drunk off my ass before getting to the show. Always a good way to start the night. It was Slayer at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC. I've seen Slayer so many times I forget who was opening. Might have been Meshuggah? I just don't remember. Anyhow, I was so lit that as soon as Slayer started I handed my friend my coat and went barreling to the front. I was throwing fuckers and getting thrown. By the end of the show I was spitting distance from the stage trying to get my hands on a Hanneman guitar pick. No hangover the next day but damn were my shoulders sore!
