I went to see Bauhaus at Guildford University circa 1980 and Gary Glitter was supporting, the audience was a mixture of punks and goths. Glitter blasted through all his songs to a pretty appreciative crowd (obviously it hadn't got out about his private life yet), when he came to 'The Leader of The Gang' he launched into it and in the chorus he is singing:
'I'm the Leader. I'm the Leader, I'm the leader of the Gang I am"
and then he stops, its totally quiet.....
..... he looks at the audience, waits for a while.....
...... and then shouts
"Whose The Leader?" (Expecting the audience to shout back "You're The Leader")
..... More quiet......
and then someone in the audience (I wish it was me) shouts....
"Not you, you Fat Bastard"
Well it made me laugh (still does).
So now I've told the story here is the third tenuous link to why I posted this.....
What's the best audience heckle you've ever heard? (In the comments please)
