This is possibly Saarbrucken Germany in August of 79. It was the open air concert and this is also when Roger dies his hair green by accident. But from what I remember it wasn't due to the green hair but a poor mix in his stage monitors that set him off. Not the first time he's trashed his kit. Temper, temper...

i think he got mad because he couldnt hear what he was singing or playing, a technical mistake, and he exploded...

On tour in the UK in 1974, Roger punched through a piece of wooden panelling in their dressing room after the show, his frustration at a microphone not picking up his vocals properly, and had to be treated at Leeds Infirmary. There was definately some end of show altercation in 1980 on the USA Game tour as well.

How many times did Rog smash his kit?

And what did Freddie, Brian and John trash?

Just curious.....
