commented on Macy Gray's Sexy Rasp Lights Up the Crocodile Tonight
Awesome performer? Hell no, she gave the absolute worst performance I have ever seen (San Jose, 2004 opening for David Bowie) It was amazingly bad. She kept going to the back of the stage behind the curtains (I had side view seats and could see what appeared to be her smoking out of a device). She'd sing a line or two, disappear, sing more, vanish, lather, rinse, repeat... With that said, her band was really tight and was great.
Then of course, Bowie took the stage and killed it.
