  • What is the ABSOLUTE WORST Live Performance that You Have Ever Seen?

    Either in person, or on tv? Was it recent, or a long time ago?

    I'm curious to see who pops up on the list!

    I saw Whitesnake at Rockfest in Cadott Wisconsin several years back, Coverdale was sooooo bad that the rest of the band had to sing for him. I stood there like the RCA Victor dog, tilting my head and cringing, I was embarrassed for him. Sick? dunno

      ALICE COOPER....saw him 2-3 years back in a world class auditorium that has magical acoustics......they managed to make the show sound like a 3 year old was let loose on the mixer!!!!! Absolute ****************.....distorted beyond hope, way, way too loud. Damn shame because I have seen many acts in there and it is fantastic sounding....in fact at the STP show a few weeks ago Scott commented on how great the auditorium and acoustics were.

        Scott may have been wasted on heroin at the time too though.

              Actually good chance he was.........he fell off the wagon a week before the show, and they were over an hour late going on.....I overheard security and management say that half the band was MIA.....there is a large strip club about a mile away....I think I know where they were.......

                I saw the Black Crowes with Jimmy Page and they were unbeleiveably great. I saw them a few years letter and they were missing everything

                  Steve Miller in the early 90's at the Mann in Philly. Horrible. Good thing I had a fat sack with me.

                  EDIT: I forgot about a Black Crowes show I saw at the Tower in Philly that totally sucked. They must have shot some dope before going on stage. To their credit, I have seen them perform some amazing shows.

                      The crowes came through here a few years back...I stayed away...those that went got to see them basically jerking each other off in a jam all night.

                        Pentangle at the Cambridge Folk Festival last summer. They brought their own sound team who were awful and didn't have a clue - terrible mix and screeching feedback all the way through. Bert Jansch, may he rest in peace, was clearly very unwell and the rather tubby John Renbourn could barely stand back up again after sitting on the floor to play sitar.

                        Shame.

                          Yeah,I guess I caught him on a VERY off night...

                          The band ruled,tho,lotsa extra solos going on for filler.

                          Glad you caught him on a good one,tho...
