After an aside to the thread: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/the-audience-cant-tell-the-difference.2080278/ I realised that some things which we older players take for granted are just glossed over by the younger generation. This isn't quite an old man ranting at clouds or all young folk are rubbish sort of post, as there are young players out there who can and do play rings around me. Nor am I talking about entitlement. For goodness' sake, we all stand on the shoulders of giants, and take those giants' contributions for granted. But there is a disconnect between some of my generation and some younger players, and not just in our musical tastes. So I wanted a thread where old guys could go full "Four Yorkshiremen" sketch about their bowel-loosening moments onstage: so really, what is the worst musical performance disaster to have befallen you? Small gigs, big gigs, auditions, TV appearances, etc. It doesn't have to be in front of a television audience of 8 million, it can be in the old 12 Bar club (or equivalent) that held 60 at a push.
