Andy_thmbSixteen years ago next month, Über Röck's very own Johnny H and Russ P were bandmates getting kicked off a pretty high profile support slot for the sake of "irony". Sounds a bit Spinal Tap if you ask us, but then again they both promised us a book's worth of Gigs From Hell and the first one comes from another of their former band mates...!!!!!!

Die_Wasted_Roger_thmb_When Die Wasted first contacted Über Röck we knew we were onto something special. They dress like primetime Warfare and sound like The Blood, so they must be a right bunch of musical maniacs, right? Well, who better than the band's singer/guitarist War Machine Roger to give us his very own Gig From Hell.

Torme_thmbHe's been in bands with such legends as Ian Gillan, Phil Lewis, Ozzy Osbourne, Dee 'Muthafuckin' Snider, and right now John McCoy and Robin Guy. Bernie Torme - guitarist extraordinaire must have a flight case full of stories to tell about gigs not necessarily going to plan. Here's his 'Gig From Hell' and it's an absolute stonewall classic.
