One of rock and roll's earliest and greatest performers was the incomparable Buddy Holly. Despite his bespectacled, nerdy appearance, the man really knew how to ignite an audience. In fact, the folks who attended Buddy's performances got so excited that many of his concerts ended with a riot.
Just as soon as the fans saw that Buddy had performed the closing song, they would fly into a collective rage, smash chairs, storm the stage, and tear down the curtain. So no theater owner would hire Buddy because they feared that their patrons would wreck the halls, with bows of Holly.
