Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins)
Here’s another singer who has had so many stage meltdowns it’s hard to choose one. The most recent one was at the Orpheum in Memphis in 2016, when a fan decided to join him onstage during a song. Corgan threatened to punch the guy in the face if he didn’t get right back off stage again. The fan complied. The show continued.
Scott Stapp (Creed)
This is a sad one. Creed’s lead singer, crippled by long years of alcohol and drug abuse, was in no condition to perform but took to the stage anyway during a 2002 appearance at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois. Stapp, oblivious, bumbled around the stage, forgot all his lyrics, and finally tried to sing while lying down and passed out, all while the band played on. It was so bad that attendees filed a class action lawsuit against the band, not the venue, to get their money back.
