I was thinking about the stairs that are invariably in the way at contest venues and which stuff has to be carried up. Or concert organisers who think it's funny to put you in an attic room which you can only reach via 7 flights of narrow, winding stairs. And, of course, this bass player suffers from a touch of vertigo.
