You know what, if the guys were screwing up and I was paying the checks, I would probably feel the same way. Here’s Paul Anka reading his crew and band the riot act after a bad show in the 1980’s. You have to listen to this video and watch the images associated, this video has pretty funny images associated as Paul goes batshit angry.
Sometime in the mid-1980s, Anka was secretly recorded while launching a tirade against his crew and band members, berating them for unprofessional behavior in the show they had just played. (Asked about it on the interview program Fresh Air, he referred to the person who did the recording as a “snake we later fired.”) The recording became widely known after being uploaded to the Internet, and a number of quotes from it have since become famous, including “The guys get shirts,” “Don’t make a maniac out of me,” and “Slice like a fucking hammer.” Some of the quotes were reproduced verbatim by Al Pacino’s character in the 2007 film Ocean’s Thirteen.
