Thread Name: Worst performance I've ever seen.
Subject: RE: Worst performance I've ever seen.
1st-Van Morrison- GREAT songwriter, horrible performer w/zero stage presence.

2nd-John Fahey- As a 30+ year, seasoned, professional guitarist/singer how this guy was/is considered one of the 'seminal greats' is really quite beyond me...American primitive, indeed. He was drunk, obnoxious, embittered, hostile and a slovenly guitarist.

3d-Kingston Trio- Opened for them at Milwaukeefest in 1980 and found them to be condescending and rude. They were drunk, awful and got by on the audience's energy.
