I was there. It was probably one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. So off the wall and unexpected, causing it to be one of the funniest moments I've experienced.quote:"I only heard about this: after being tempted by Neil all evening, Paul actually doing the full monty during the encores somewhere in the US, giving Peter Green in the audience and all at management the willies (is there a pun around here? A real stinker)"
It took place at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. I think it happened during the Woodface tour; my husband would better remember, and correct me if I'm wrong. It had to have been near Christmas time, because earlier that evening Paul was wearing a Santa hat. I believe it was either 12/16/91 or 12/17/91. If it wasn't then, it was one of the many times we saw them at the Wiltern.
He not only took off all his clothes, in front of us all , he then placed his underwear on top of his head! Everyone was in hysterics!
I didn't realize that Peter was in the audience (hi Peter!), but I can imagine it was rather nerve-wracking, wondering what the ramificatons would be.
I was sure there'd be something about it on the news or in the papers the next day.... but nothing! What does a man have to do to get some attention? (haha)
It was a classic moment! But then again, they had many classic moments. Their satire and banter always reminded me of that of the Beatles. Very funny! And sometimes their antics were almost akin to the Marx Brothers. They had a great chemistry both musically and humorously. Too bad it all had to go sour. But then again, nothing lasts forever, not the Beatles, not even Crowded House; it's just human nature.
I feel badly for any of you who didn't have the pleasure of experiencing Crowded House LIVE! You still have the opportunity of experiencing Neil, and you should do whatever you can to do so!
