This article focuses on the author's account of his feelings when he watches someone embarrass himself on stage. There is a special feeling the author gets when he watches someone embarrass himself onstage. It doesn't matter if it's live or on TV. It doesn't even matter if they know. A bad guitarist, a flat singer, a poor misguided talentless slob or a pro that's so drunk or stoned that he can't remember how many notes are in an octave. A keyboardist with hands of wood or a drummer who suffers the effects of time dilation from the event horizon of the nearest black hole.
