The Worst Gig: From Psycho Fans to Stage Riots, Famous Musicians Tell All by Jon Niccum Whether a stage riot, snowstorm, or a deranged fan, rock stars tell the tale. Since 1998, entertainment journalist Jon Niccum has asked touring musicians the question, what is the worst show you've ever played. Now, after hundreds of interviews with national headliners and beloved indie acts alike comes a collection that chronicles the most embarrassing, most hilarious, and most insane live show moments ever. The Worst Gig features outrageous stories from stars like Wilco, Tenacious D, John Mayer, and The Sex Pistols. Whether natural disaster struck, equipment blew up on stage, or the military had to break up an audience riot, Niccum has the wild scoop on what really happened, straight from the artists themselves. Sometimes the worst shows inspire the best stories... The Raven Book Store 6 East 7th Street Lawrence, Kansas 66044 United States
