Blame It On The Alcohol: The 15 Most Infamous Drunk Performances By Rock Stars

by

5. Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots at The Woodlands in Houston, Texas (September 19th, 2010)

Scott is clearly pretty bummed, as he (semi) clearly states while ranting to the crowd during this performance where he admitted he was drinking again. The band halted the tour soon after the incident, in an effort to convince Weiland to straighten out. But his onstage meltdowns became increasingly commonplace, which contributed to the band’s decision to fire him in February 2013.

 

4. Jim Morrison of the Doors at the Seattle Coliseum (June 5th, 1970)

The Lizard King had more than his fair share of outrageous onstage incidents, but his March 1969 performance in Miami has gone down into rock ‘n’ roll myth. The controversial singer antagonized the crowd into a riotous frenzy (the bad kind) and allegedly exposed himself to the crowd (despite no photographic evidence and repeated denials from his bandmates). A court case followed, which resulted in a 6-month jail sentence for the Doors frontman! He went free pending an appeal, but he definitely didn’t curb his onstage behavior…as this recording made a year later shows.
