Well, in my band I would speak to him politely in Russian and tell him TOUGH 
SHISKY, and send him to go to the bar to buy us all  Whisky while the rest of 
us played it, :))
Not to mention not sharing the request tips with him, aha but that will 
change his tune quickly I wager.

I shall henceforth Request that song every time I see Cellblock7 in the 
future while waving a $100.00 bill 0ver the Tip Jar, :))  Several times a set too,  
and shall protest loudly in public places if you don't play it. :)))

When you play in New Orleans and don't play that tune the audience will send 
you home BLACK & BLUE.  :))
