The tech said depending on BWs mood he would get a new set for each sound check and at times then one before each set.
You would think Bob (or Bob's tech) would have bought cases of his favorite strings direct from the manufacturer or wholesaler.
First thing I thought. But I do not doubt what seanc is saying. It's also probable that if Bobby was acting all nuts about his string changes that there were some issues of running out or his crew picking up packs along the way.
But what I really don't get is that when I change strings it takes an hour of playing and then they settle and shine! I don't get a swap after soundcheck unless it's maybe a nasty ass muggy day and the guitars were on stage too early and check took a half dozen sweaty songs for a couple hours to get it right.
