Marshall Tucker Band at PC in Clinton after a benefit ride - year 200? - don't recall.

Seems they requested whiskey and 8-10 cases of beer before the show, and burned through it before coming out. Doug Gray was totally wasted - couldn't remember the lyrics to "Can't You See?"...

one of the best and the worst were the same shows. rage against the machine/wu tang at blockbuster pavillion in 1997. rage was outstanding wu tang was the worst thing I've ever seen. drum track with them saying four words in some order:bitch, f&$*, p#$$@, N word. no songs I maybe could have lived with but it was incoherent rambling of those 4 words in different orders.

I asked my wife if she wanted me to buy her a beer, and an old lady turned around and very bluntly asked me to stop talking. After about four songs, the girls a few rows up got up dancing again, and were promptly met by the old lady and two security guards and escorted out of the show. I felt like I was at the ballet or opera or even in a movie theater. No talking, no standing, no dancing. We just had to sit there and listen. I did see some people tapping their toes, which I took to be their form of silent, defiant protest of the archaic footloosean ideology.

I will never understand those that think VH was better with Roth. Defies logic and music.
Totally agree. With exception of the first VH album, the ones with DLR had lots of hit and miss songs. The albums with Sammy had some masterpiece songs that pushed the entire band musically to another level. Sammy made the band grow up in a good way, but I still like DLR.

Second David Allan Coe. Garbage. 95% of the concerts I've been to are punk, pop punk, and ska bands so most of those guys have plenty of energy and gave it all in their shows, so I can't complain about any of those concerts. Notice that almost every post mentioned has been a mainstream artist or group. Most mainstream group I've seen was Nine Inch Nails in Greenville back in 06 or 07. My roommate was a big fan I went with him because he bought my ticket. Wasn't that bad.

If it was the So Good,So Far, So What line up with with Behler and Young,I'd believe it. Megadeth didn't hit their stride until the Rust In Piece lineup. Killing and Peace Sells lineups and albums were nice, but the So Good era sort of sucked.

As far as the worst shows that I've had the chance to see,it'd have to be the Blaze line up of Maiden and Priest without Halford.

Know what you're saying. Saw Tucker and Charlie Daniels at the Old Sirrine Stadium back in 76(I think). One of the best shows I've ever seen.

To add to the worst shows,not because of the bands, but Skynyrd's last show in Greenville before the crash and the night the roadie fell out of the ceiling and died(KISS/Krokus 84) at the Greenville auditorium are sad memories for life reasons ,not shitty performances.
