Default Re: Worst Gig Experiences?

I've had several...many due to horrible sound experiences.

One that comes to mind has nothing to do with bad soud though:

We were playing a big venue, with major label record company people in the audience to see us. The guitar player snuck off and got himself so stoned he couldn't work his amp, and inserted guitar solos in places where they weren't supposed to be.

We got a nice letter from the record company, commenting that they loved the band, loved the songs, but hated the *bleeping* Eddie Van Halen wanna be.

Needless to say, the guitar player was promptly fired, but getting those particular record company people to come back out and reevaluate us without him ended up being futile.
