Default The Trainwreck Thread - Video/audio of the band messing up live.

It's not often you hear the guys making a total mess of a song, so I thought it would be fun to have a thread with a few vids or audio of those few trainwrecks. I'll kick things off with this audio I found of possibly the worst rendition of Wattershed ever, from The Showbox gig in Seattle in November 2014.

The warning signs that Dave might eventually fall off the stage:

PS - I was at this concert and the energy level picked up by a magnitude after Disco Dave took a tumble and broke his guitar. Hands-down the best concert I've been to, so far.

What did he get caught up in? And damn...that looked like it hurt. When he laid down at the end I felt for him.

He put his foot into the gap between the light and the drum riser, and the cable to the light somehow got wrapped around his foot. The guitar's neck broke when he fell - that was the 001 serial number guitar too. Luckily it was repairable. He looked weird singing without a guitar though.

Thanks for that. You couldn't really tell beyond he was caught up in something. I loved his WTF was that moment??

And the guitar....that's a shame. I wonder if he fixed it or turfed it.

Yeah, they fixed it, apparently. Although it wasn't long after that he switched to his current one. Also, a song or two later Taylor deliberately fell off his stool while Dave was watching which was pretty funny. It was a great gig and awesome end to the Australia/NZ part of the tour.

Not a mistake but I guess it fits the thread. Kinda.

April Fools Day 1996, Dave starts playing 'This Is A Call' but when the band kicks in they play 'Winnebago'. Sounds rather messy but it was an intentional prank on Dave.

I've been trying to find the video where Dave is playing the start of Everlong by himself (2008?), and he plays a very obvious wrong chord, but I can't find it. I thought they were at Madison Square Garden, but it's not that show. Does anyone know the vid I'm talking about?

Speaking of Shifty, perhaps his most seen gaffe would be SNL 07, when he slightly flubbed the start of 'The Pretender'.

He and Taylor have a laugh about it, although hard to tell in that copyright evading version.
