LOL i don`t gig... but i was at a local show not to long ago and a few times a band would be playing and then bang no sound LOL because they tripped the breaker which cut the power... that would have to suck

Not being heard! The worst is when you forget to soundcheck, so when you kick into the song you realize that you can't hear yourself over the drums. Or most of all, tuning just for 1-2 songs then tuning back down again.

having the drummer foget his que to enter the song
Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die,

I'm a little bit scared of what comes after

Do I get the gold chariot?

Do I float through the ceiling?

Why would you even play live without doing a soundcheck?

The thing that pisses me off is twats in the crowd telling me to use my star power.

When they don't let me aim my amp away from the crowd, even when they mic up the amps.
String snappage.
Guitar falling out of tune during song.
Drunk hecklers. (Sometimes they're fun though)
Tripping.

When the crowd doesn't get into it as much you want.

You look like a real douchebag when you don't sing a section of song because you expect the crowd too, and then all you hear is silence.

Forget? God damn boy, last show I played I didn't get a sound check anyway, hell I wanted one but the sound guy was all like "nah, too many bands, just get your kit on stage dude." there's me standing there all

When your strap buttons explode from your guitar cause your rockin' way to hard. Straplocks are your bestfriend.

defanitly small stages i freakin hate em
never want to stage dive in fear of no one catching me ahah
breaking of strings in the middle of the song ugh
crowd trying to get on stage and messin with stuff (takin the mike etc...)
etc, etc, etc....
#19
So how many of these actually happened... : P.
Stage diving, flashing : P ?

I'll go with being booked with 7 hardcore emo screamo bands, as a band that does NO screaming, plays in drop D at the lowest, and takes influence from new school thrash, to power metal.

Looking forward to this gig so much.

Haha. Yeah the show is a real bummer if the guitarist doesn't flip his axe around and float like a buddhist monk.
#21
Someone else here mentioned dropping picks. It also really pissed me off one time when I had just performed a badass 15 minute jam with my drummer in front of my whole school (1300+) and once we were finished everyone was like "Yeah, we couldn't really hear you over the drums..." But hey atleast they could SEE that I was shredding...psh

yah, well basically we were nervous and just wanted to kick into the set. As soon as I plugged in the drummer counted us down so I couldn't mess with the settings/volume. It was horrible.
#26
Just generally that feeling of somebody ****ing everything up for me. And string snappage is a fear, but I tend to change all the strings on my guitars before I play live, gotta be somethin on the safe side for that. Oh, and when your band cuts a song short without mentioning it to you and at the end you hit 3 more notes before stopping. Garbage, that's why I play in death metal bands now, to avoid the problematic punk band situations.
#27
lets see..
sound check is a big one.
no crowd reaction at all.
bad singers.
bad drummers.
tuning.
picks.
stupid drunk sluts.
playing with bands out of your genre.
#28
trying out a new second guitarist and having his tone ice pick my ear, breaking picks, some jackass touching my amp settings, chord crapping out, singer being to drunk to sing, being drunk and puking.

In my experience:

-Trailing cables all over the stage (venue INSISTED on all of this lighting stuff).
-Small stages.
-Crap monitors.
-Drunk guy kissing my shoes (this actually happened).
-Guitar going out-of-tune mid-song.
-Other members stop playing.
-Drunk bandmates.
-Voice cracking.
-Sore throat (I'm a trained singer- 'making do' doesn't cut it).
-Guitar tech gives me the wrong guitar for the wrong song. Nothing worse than having your standard guitar for a DGDGBD song!
#33
Cord clumpage, strings breaking, and playing while intoxicated. It's just too hard, man! Especially when you set up your gear, you have no idea what the hell you are doing. SRV was a trooper.
#34
Having sucky sound engineers.
that turn the guitar down way too much and it gets over-powered.

the "hurry up and get here then wait"... load in at 5-6 pm... then sound check... then wait HOURS till you actually play... thus worrying about band mates getting too f'd up to play from being fed shots/beers/pills/bumps/tokes all night during the wait.

You don't play for Job For a Cowboy do you? Because the lack of sound check/crowd reaction sounds familiar.

I saw them with Megadeth and Evile in Newcastle. You couldn't hear the guitars over everything else and the crowd weren't awake.
