Crowded House, Atlanta 2007.

They were playing "Fall at your feet", and Neil Finn got into the bridge too soon, his face went red and felt very ashamed (he couldn't believe he failed a song he has sung a million times) but the people started clappnig him and they never stopped, instead of this, Neil continued playing it acoustically and the people sang with him until they entered together.

This things can produce magic moments. And for sure this was one of those.

Seen Gregg miss vocal cues and the band just circle back again and let him try one more time. One particular WP, he missed the last chorus after Warren's solo, so they just doubled back and man did he nail it.

Their was a show here in Noblesville,Ind at Deer Creek ,probably 97 or 98 where it was Dickey being totally off on one jam or it was the band, could not figure that one out. It went one for about 30 secs to minute. Dickey was up front and jamming and what he was playing was not meshing with the rest or vice a versa.

Seen Gregg miss it quite a few times...never saw a 're-start- but miscues.
If ya listen close to One Way Out on EAP, you can hear BO come in on the wrong key but quickly corrects behind Duane's wailing.

BO is not in the wrong key on that song in any spot??. but Duane pushes the meter a bit coming out of the drum break and he re-adjusts.

I saw him stop and restart in Dallas 2007. From my blog:

"The band goes into "Key to the Highway", one of the songs Gregory plays guitar on. hehehehe After a few measures, Gregory signals the band and they stopped. "We're gonna try something else." hehehe He rises from the bench, licks his right index finger, and makes a mark in the air. Then proceeded to take a couple of bows to the band, who were rollin' with laughter."

Too funny.

The whole 'meter' is changed during that break. Count 1 2 3 4....with the 'crack' on the 2 & 4 and see if you don't end up on '1 & 3'...hahah!!! I've heard Butch describe it in an interview years ago that they never really knew who screwed it up OR how the miraculously saved it. He also went on to say that every 'garage band' in America tried for years to "learn the mistake"....frickin' hysterical!!!

Speaking of screw-ups....which any musician will make....if you have the Instant Live of one of the Chastain shows last year...Gregg goes into the organ solo 'outro' to Elizabeth Reed while he's playing the solo in--I believe--Les Brers--sounds like a train-wreck for a few moments but they get out of it. I remember Gregg dropping his head and laughing when he realized what he'd done. Oteil was cracking up as was Derek....Warren looked bewildered....sure enuff it's on the CD.

I remember turning my head and sorta closing my eyes/squinting, bracing for the impact of the impending train wreck. But miraculously, they saved it. Somehow. It was the first night at Chastain, if memory serves (and it often doesn't).

Anyone remember one of the first Great Southern shows (post-ABB) in Atlanta at the Variety Playhouse? Dan Toler was still in the band. Must've been 2003 or 2004. Anyway, "Jessica" that night was a train wreck. I'm not sure whether they actually stopped and started over, but when the harmonized single-note run starts at the beginning, right after the intro chord strumming, it just fell apart. And I think they almost did it again after the solos when they went back into the same part... not near as bad, but more wincing could be seen on stage. They just couldn't get together that evening.

I've seen that happen a few times...the times that stuck in my memory:

1) Fleetwood Mac at the Universal Amphitheatre 1976. Buckingham counts off a song (I believe it was "Over My Head") and the whole band comes in except Fleetwood. He'd broken the kick drum pedal and his drum tech had removed it to fix it (or replace it). So the band stopped. John McVie came up to the mic and said, "Jesus, Mick, our first hometown gig in almost a year and you go an f**k it up!!". Took about 5 more minutes before a working pedal was replaced. And, then they restarted the song.

2) Again, Fleetwood Mac, this time at the Hollywood Bowl 1980. Fleetwood counts off the song (Christine's "Think About Me" from the Tusk album) and starts playing but nobody else came in. And, again, John McVie makes a bee-line to the mic and says, "Do you mind waiting to see if the REST OF US are ready before you f**king start the song, Mick?".

3) Once again, Fleetwood Mac...1977 at San Diego Sports Arena. They hadn't started the song yet, but Buckingham introduced the "next song is one off of our new album called Rumours"...but, after the rest of the band, yelling, "No, no, no". Realized that he'd started to introduce the wrong song. Christine McVie said, "this next song is NOT from our new album", and again, as usual, John McVie had to get his digs in, just as Buckingham started playing the opening riff of "Rhiannon", he shouted into the microphone, "This is NOT a professional band!".

Just about EVERY time I saw Linda Ronstadt in the '70s (which was about 5 or 6 times), at some point in the show, she would draw a blank on the lyrics of a song---the band would TRY to play through until she remembered the line, but only once did she catch on. All the other times, she'd actually LEAVE THE STAGE to get the lyric line. (or DO a line, who knew the difference back then?)

Van Morrison in SF a few years ago. Not a great live show, especially for big bucks.

I'm surprised that some of these guys with huge catalogs, like Warren, don't throw a shoe more often. Just remembering the changes, vox, bring in's - amazing.

I remember that night, and that little bit of a screw up. I'm glad that they can laugh about that stuff. As I have said before, the worst they can do still sounds pretty good, to my ears, anyway.

Boy...that's for sure BDOB!!! I could tell a couple of stories about my own 'screw-ups' over the years. Maybe we can start a thread tonite--I'm on lunch--about us 'weekend warrior' muZEEshuns who have REALLY fouled up a few times on stage in our history.

Saw Todd Rundgren at a bar in Jacksonville, very up close and personal.

Anyhow, he starts into whatever song....stops, yanks his guitar off and throws it to a technician, then stands there and berated the guy for what seemed like an eternity while he fixed whatever was wrong with it.

I'm sure Todd meant to be funny or whatever, but it sure did not come across like that at all, it left us feeling very sorry for the poor tech.
