As in he's the naked guy from my story, and not you! Although as you have previous for this kind of thing, he could be you for all I know. Where were you at 5pm on Friday?

Evidently American gigs are extremely boring. I thought you English were supposed to be all stiff upper lip and shit?

The "worst" thing (not Frank) was probably at my first concert, aged 11 with my sisters, the band (how fucking embarrassing is this?) Chicago, circa 1986. A guy with a white guy Afro of super curly red hair pulled a bunch of joints out of his hair and passed them out to his friends. That is hardly worth discussing compared to naked people, sex acts, and race wars!

I don't think that's necessarily true - see Lynn Strait emerging naked from a toilet with a hooker onstage during a Limp Bizkit show... Although I suppose that's the artist rather than the crowd.

Frank - raise that bar.

My worst non Frank story would have to be my first Reading Festival in 2002, I was 15 and only allowed to go for the day, first band on was The Dillinger Escape Plan. Half way through the set the lead singer declares "your gonna see a lot of shit on this stage today" and proceeded to drop trou, take a shit in to a plastic bag, wipe, tie the bag up and then chucked it in to the crowd. The bag stayed intact whilst it was chucked about the crowd. It found its way back on stage and the singer ripped the bag open and chucked it back. I didn't see the bag after that.

That was epic. One of the best live performances I've ever seen. Greg making a name for himself after just joining.

Not a Frank show, but at a hardcore show at the Underworld one time, this guy down the front moshed a bit too hard and absolutely stacked it into the floor. Next thing I saw was him getting up, pointed to his face and I saw him mouthing to his mate the words "I can't see". Dunno what happened to him but I was actually kinda worried for him at the time. Hopefully he was ok!

Yeah, I didn't want to be a downer in that regard, but there was a reluctant petite crowd surfer at Lee's Palace in Toronto who got dropped on her face. Boyfriend lifted her up there (the dick) and she was trying to get down, but her squirminess made it worse. She got up and left after she fell, so... Maybe she was ok? Maybe? But yeah, didn't look like the best way to the floor.

At my first gig gig when I was 12 (also not Frank) I saw the bassist from Bloodhound Gang drink the contents of a glow stick, proceed to throw it up into a sock, and then threw the sock into the crowd. Lovely.

Bizarre Festival 1998 or 1999. Mr. Danzig wasn't in the best mood and nearly strangled some poor tech, with the cord of his microphone.
The Guy tried to fix something on stage, but apparently not fast enough for Glen Danzig. He pulled the cord and the guy was trapped. Shortly after releasing him Danzig left the stage.

Can't even remember the name of the band but at this years 2000 trees a guy out the band decided to crowd surf despite the fact there were about 50 people in the tent and none of them were really interested in the band, anyway this resulted in groups of people passing the guy around until one group of guy's decided to run away with the band member, with him still being carried above them. The band carried on and the guy returned 5 minutes later, god knows what happened during those 5 minutes.
