Thin Lizzy Guitarist Reveals 'Absolute Bar-None Worst' Live Experience

(Classic Rock) Black Star Riders guitarist Scott Gorham has recalled the "absolute bar-none worst thing" that ever happened to him on stage. He severely injured his leg during a Thin Lizzy show after a jump went wrong but he was on so much cocaine that he didn't know how much damage he'd done, and went back to finish the performance.

Gorham doesn't say when the incident took place, but he's remembered performing a number of shows with his leg strapped up during 1981′s Chinatown tour.

"I made a move, something I did a hundred times with Phil. I'd jump on the drum riser, play with Brian Downey a bit, do a big leap off, land, and Phil and I would be doing our thing, "He tells Total Guitar.

"In Washington DC, I jump up, mess around with Brian, I jump, I hit and I just crumble on the floor. I couldn't get up; I'm looking at my guitar tech going, 'You've got to help me here.' Two guys unceremoniously drag me off stage behind my amps. I'm sitting there going, 'Oh man, I guess I just dislocated my knee. I'm okay now!' I was coked up to the eyeballs feeling no pain." more on this story
