Has a band ever dismembered on stage?
Written by Cedric Lucas on 22 January 2022
At least two of the drummers of the legendary 70s Rock Group, Spinal Tap died on stage, Peter “James” Bond spontaneously combusted during a jazz-blues or blues-jazz festival on the Isle of Lucy but Mick Shrimpton actually exploded onstage. If that’s not dismemberment then it’s the closest reel example l know of.
But perhaps you mean musicians who were sacked on stage i.e. musicians who ceased to be members of the band and “dis-membered” while playing on stage. But l hope not because .. in fact, dozens of people spontaneously combust each year, it’s just not really widely reported….
