Welcome to WorstGig.com, a website encompassing 17 years of interviews conducted by veteran music journalist Jon Niccum.
As any performer can attest, it's not always a glamorous experience. There are a million stories of hardship, regret, mistakes and mishaps that can make up the landscape of life as a touring musician. The Worst Gig is a collection of those stories from some of the most influential musicians of our time, told in their own words for your entertainment.
Visitors to this site will be the first to read a selection of stories from Niccum's archive. They'll also be able to experience audio recordings from the original interviews and a collection of some of the web's best video clips that showcase others' own Worst Gig moments. If you're a performer yourself and have a Worst Gig story to share, we'd love to hear it.
