Boyz,

Standing does take time to build up the leg muscles, one gig is not a judge of inacative legs. I stand 250+ gigs a year with no problems what so ever.. I'm 50, but thats just me. Sitting makes me feel so helpless and not in control and I cant have that.
My singing would also be hindered by singing from a singing position for sure.

Gary,

Why do you only take 5 min breaks?
Whats up with that? I hope they are paying you for continuous Music.

...... Have any of you tried one of these ... http://www.uline.com/ProductDetail.asp?model=H-651BL
I remember about 120 years ago when I was a young lad working as a computer operator we had mats like this in front of the console to help reduce wear and tear on our back and legs ... Of course I don't know how well they worked because I was muuuuuuch younger and NOTHING hurt !!! ....

Tony, I purchased one of these pads at Home Depot for $8...I don't use it to stand on, I throw it over the electric wires outside the home when I need to use an extension ladder near the wires...I guess you can say it is a life saver...

Donny,

I kinda' got in the habit of taking short breaks many years ago when I was a kid playing lead guitar with a bunch of guys I was in the navy with. I think the longest break I've ever taken was maybe 15 minutes, and I think that was only once when one of the keyboard's crapped out. When I was 50, there were lots of body parts that were still functional--now some of those parts are missing. Gettin' old ain't fer whimps and sissies!

Cheers,

Gary
