Yeah, they didn't sound bad... But it's definitely an embarrassing situation if you're in a massive, massive place and nobody is there to give a shit.Said it was an indoor football game and they were booked after the players signing event. The crowd (or lack thereof) definitely sucks. But the band actually sounds pretty good.
OH MY GOD - TUNING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SONG AT FULL VOLUME!!!Was it as bad as his performance here?
Hard to say if it's age. Age seemed to negatively affect Chuck Berry and BB King both...
However, age has not really affected Jeff Beck or David Gilmour or Eric Clapton.
It's hard to tell with Dickey, in the video I posted his right hand looks oddly positioned, maybe arthritis?
Or, yeah, maybe it's too much booze.
Hard to know why age seems to affect some guitarists but not others who are even older.
Sitting at an airport lounge in Shanghai reading this and start laughing like a lunatic so people start staring at me...Once I missed my guitar with my picking hand and hit myself in the balls so hard I threw up on stage.
I know, I know...I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help it...
I don't know if I ever seen this before, if I did I probably thought it was fake.The series of EVH videos from NAMM 2003 go beyond embarrassment to heartbreaking, for me. Certainly a dark time for Eddie and I'm glad he was able to move beyond it.
Good stories. I like the 'positive' spin of exposing our foibles on stage.
But Dickey...I couldn't watch any more. I think that clip was during that concert that I started watching...just didn't get that far.
Yeah, remember seeing BB King in those last years, seemed all he did was play one note as sweet as he could, listen for the cheers, play one note again. I'm pretty sure that the diabetes had as much to do with that as age.
I'll throw one. We were playing at Elitch Gardens, we did 'Hocus Pocus'. I, like an idiot, was tired, so accepted a Red Bull and Jaeger right beforehand. I absolutely blew about every other note of that song with jitters (I generally don't have caffeine and/or sugar). Worst part is we filmed the whole afternoon, so it's preserved in history.
Not surprising. Jack is a POS. A couple hundred of his fans burned to death due to his stupidity and greed. And he never showed any true remorse either. Most people stopped listening to him or having anything to do with him after that. He was never that great to begin with anyways, rode on the coat tails of bigger Artists and MTV at the time with his what 2 or 3 hit songs from their 2 albums. It's quite fitting.What was the occasion here? Seems odd they’re at a giant arena that’s empty.
Hardcore! That's the stuff legends are made from!...Once I missed my guitar with my picking hand and hit myself in the balls so hard I threw up on stage.
