'They hated us and started throwing cups, bottles, change, chairs, and anything that wasn't nailed down.' -DEAN WEEN This hilarious, sometimes horrifying, collection spans four decades and chronicles the craziest, druggiest, and most embarrassing concert moments in music history-direct from the artists who survived them. 'In the midst of my insanity, I thought it would be a very romantic gesture to go into Fiona Apple's dressing room and write a message on her wall in my own blood.' -DAVE NAVARRO From wardrobe malfunctions to equipment failures, from bad decisions to even worse choices, this is a riveting look into what happens when things go wrong onstage and off. No Encore! is an unflinchingly honest account of the shows that tested the dedication to a dream-from Alice Cooper's python having a violent, gastric malfunction on stage to Lou Barlow's disastrous attempt to sober up at Glastonbury, from Shirley Manson's desperate search for a bathroom to the extraordinary effort made to awaken Al Jourgenson as Ministry was taking the stage. As Hunter S. Thompson famously wrote, 'Buy the ticket, take the ride.'
