    Many years ago Bon Jovi were giving a concert in the Netherland, a notably secular country.

    Jon: “Say yeah!”
    Audience: “Yeah!”
    Jon: “Can I get a yeah?!”
    Audience: “Yeah!”
    Jon: “Can I get an Amen?!”
    <Crickets chirping>
    Jon (realizing this has not gone down the way he’s used to): “...for the gods of Rock & Roll?”
    Audience: “...”

    They then started to play ‘Bad Medicine’ and the awkwardness passed... :whistling:

    Not cringeworthy but memorable all the same

    Jethro Tull at Kings Dominion in Va. The skies were getting dark so Ian pops out with " it looks like we're about to have an involuntary wet T shirt contest "

    I got attacked once on stage by a drunken plumber.

    He was Irish, apparently, or so I was later told.

    Then we shoved him off stage, put the mike stands back up, and continued.

    That's sort if like banter, right?

    LOL..outting those in the audience who may be there with a lover, cheating on their spouse.

    Which then brings to mind the scene in the movie "Little Murders" where Don Sutherland, acting as the minister of some New Age Church at a wedding ceremony, preaches a sermon to the congregation that eventually turns the ceremony into chaos....."BUT IT'S ALRIGHT" :

    As much as I loved Zeppelin all my life, some of Plant's squeals, moans, and body mannerisms can be over the top.

    And old, shirtless Iggy Pop performing.

    Thijs van Leer yodeling live on Hocus Pocus

    Knowing The Village People and KC & The Sunshine Band still tour


    Cringing over things that didn't make you cringe before, only means you are officially a geezer :sneaky:

    I saw Ted Nugent in 94/95. He delivered a nasty screed against asians and the first lady of the United States (she wasn't even a politician yet), which culminated in launching a flaming arrow into a "japanese" guitar. It was clear he hoped for similar violence towards asian people and the first lady.

    In my defense, I didn't know he was like that before I went to the show.

    Yeah, Ted should shut up and just play guitar..
    I'm not sure why celebrities feel the need to spout off about their political, religious or other beliefs....just because someone is a good actor, musician, chef, or whatever doesn't mean they know everything about everything.

    Ted plays Gibson and PRS, nothing wrong with that.
    Hes an entertainer. Jimi burned strats and no one called him anti american.

    Jimi actually did get a lot of anti-american hate for being anti-war and many thought his rendition of the national anthem was disrespectful, even so, I don't believe Jimi and Ted are comparable in any way

    Jimi burning strats wasn't burning them in the context of a rant about how much he hates Americans and how he's shooting them because they're American. And I suspect if he'd made even veiled advocacy of violence against Lady Bird Johnson, that would have put him at the top of J. Edgar Hoover's list.

    That's because war and violence are so ingrained in the American psyche, that if you protest war they think you're protesting America.

    I saw Rose Tattoo in Baton Rouge Louisiana back in the day. Their lead singer was hocking the most disgusting substances up from the bowels of his lungs and spitting them on the stage. It was worse than cringe worthy. It was purely disgusting and can't be unremembered.
