What concerts have you seen where the artist was too loaded to complete the performance?
This question was inspired by a thread on concert performances where the artist played a wrong note or sang the wrong lyrics.
I saw the brilliant guitarist John Fahey ** at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco get completely drunk on brandy & sodas ** from the house bar. As he played, Fahey would ask for a drink, and the owner would have one sent up to him on a little tray. As the evening passed, Fahey got completely shit-faced. He started trashing Leo Kottke for only playing fast, and not playing that well. At one point he stopped playing, stood up, and announced to the audience ‘I have to go to the bathroom.’ He left the stage and returned a few minutes later. He started mumbling about approaching and falling into the abyss of Good Friday. He was served no more drinks from the bar, and the concert ended in a confused muddle. Fahey’s guitar playing was excellent throughout.
