Just asking. Went to see Pearl Jam last week in London and it was a fantastic show but twice they started a tune, stopped, then started again. Can't remember the particular songs but one involved Eddie Vedder playing the intro on guitar before throwing the towel in.
So, Can't imagine this ever happening to this line up but maybe back in the alcoholically challenged and chemically enhanced days?

'80 or '81 at Blossom in Cleveland. The band went into Can't Take It With You from ER and GA never sang so it became an instrumental. Afterwards Dan Toler and Dickey went over to GA and had a little chat. Next song up was Blue Sky and instead of having the keyboard dude take the first solo as they usually did Toler took it and it was remarkably close to Duane's EAP solo. The rest of the night they seemed to give it a little extra.

Seen Pearl Jam about a dozen times and never saw that happen. Were these new or old songs?

Was at the Beacon--which had to be in early spring 2000--the nite of the famous "Dickey--Butch Staredown''......one started one song....the other one another. I believe Butch held his ground...but the clash lasted for probably a minute or so. Can't remember what the two songs even were. The rest just hung their heads disgusted. It was obvious that trouble was brewing....yet they finished the nite. Same vibe in Nashville that May....DIckey's next-to-last show...and the rest as they say...is history.

The Grateful Dead did that quite a few times. Usually Bob Weir winds up apologizing to the crowd and they would start again.

When I saw Radiohead at Radio City 11 years ago then started and stopped the intro to Let Down 2 or 3 times before finally playing through on it. It didn't have anything to do with mistakes though, I think it was more like a suspense builder for the encore.

Hey Mark. Thought you would like to know I sent your comment in a email to Danny. I think he would be very proud of your kind words.

Well, if it happened to Derringer with that particular song then I guess it could happen to anybody

McCartney did it on Eleanor Rigby in 2002 because he flubbed the words.

The brothers had a pretty bad "trainwreck" at the murat centre in Indy 7/25/03, it seems half the band is playing "desdemona" and the rest of em are playing "woman across the river, they should have stopped, but they soldiered on and got on the same page!.

At Ovens Auditorium Charlotte early 90's, hotter than 40 hells, the venue only selling wine, all jacked up, the Bro's ... Dickey I believe blows an amp up midsong. They take a break to replace and start again. Don't remember the song.

Saw Susan Tedeschi do it at the Keswick Theatre. She started a song and forgot the words, started over and got it right.

I've seen quite a few forget the lyrics, but they usually keep playing until someone else gives them the first two words or so.

Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with it. Rather have my dentist start over, than muddle through if something was wrong at the start. LOL

I love when they ask the audience if they know the words. Dylan does it on the famous Halloween show of '64, I think that became part of the Bootleg Series eventually . . . I can't remember which tune it was . . . "I can't understand, she let go of my hand, and left me here facing the wall . . ." Maybe that one . . . is that Ballad in Plain D? I don't feel like looking it up.

And I saw Warren do it at a solo acoustic show this February, the tune was Jim Croce's Roller Derby Queen. Hilarious. The audience laughed with him, not at him. Adds color and character to a show, IMO. I dig the ABB and like the Mule, but from here on out, I'll see Warren solo every chance I get. My favorite format for him, easy.

I saw the Brothers play Liz Reed twice at a show in 1973, once in the first set and again in the second. When Dickey started the song the second time there was a lot of eye-rolling on stage, but everyone soldiered through ...

Wasn't there a "two lizzies" show in the 90's . . . maybe an acoustic and an electric? I seem to remember hearing something about that.

Nope, never heard the ABB do it. Heard Neil Young do it.

I saw Dickey do it with the Bros at Roy Wilkins in 92.
He started screwing around on the acoustic set with an off key blues intro, stopped, got the key right and played "Pony Boy".
