Bob Pollard's Drunk Again

Bob Pollard has been known to drink a lot while performing on stage with his band, Guided By Voices. I saw him last one song with another band, The Flaming Lips.

The band packed itself onto the tiny stage at Stache's and began to rip through "Motor Away" as Pollard joined them with a beer in hand. The problem was that Bob was singing but there were no vocals to be heard. Eventually, he figured out that the mic had been switched off.

As Mr. Pollard literally slumped to another side of the stage (a spot in which he'd stay the rest of the evening), Wayne Coyne asked if he had forgotten the words to the song.
