    I think it's more common at festivals when a lot of unmatched bands are playing at the same grounds. I'm sure no one would actually buy a ticket to see PATD just to throw a bottle at the dude's face...at least I hope not.

    Although thier music DOES make me a little bit angry, it's people like that bottle-throwing guy that ruin festivals. What happened to the spirit of music and all that?

    The rest of the band should have thrown thier instruments into the crowd or something. :bag:

    I'd feel the same way if I paid my good, hard-earned money to see some real music and these hacks came onto the stage. :meh:
     
  5. maybe they oculd get some SX'es just for that purpose (not sayin they're bad, just cheap enough to throw at morons):bag::ninja:

    Frankly i reckon he was faking alot of it. Making a big deal of it. Sure it hurts but No bottle of water can knock someone out, or over.

    As much as I hate to think of the witless assholery of anyone who would throw a bottle at a performer, (a) their "music" was so bad I was tempted to throw a bottle at my computer screen, and (b) I agree that it looked like he was faking it. I watched the moment of impact a few times, and he sings a few more lines of the song on his way down! If I had actually been hit in the face with a bottle that hard, I would have said something like "Buh!" ...and then if I wasn't unconscious I would have said something like "****!!! ******** mother****ing ****, what the ****!!!!!" I would not be singing.

    +1 Hate to think how many 'live' performances I've seen/engineered where a DAT got handed to FOH with instructions to 'top & tail': Bring up the vocal mic for the start and end of the song to allow the 'performer' to say their little bit to the audience. Its especially prevalent at festival type gigs and 'party in the park' one day events with top 40 acts. Sucks a$$.
