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.
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.
Once I missed my guitar with my picking hand and hit myself in the balls so hard I threw up on stage.
I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help it...
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.
What was the occasion here? Seems odd they’re at a giant arena that’s empty.
